Calcium Hypochlorite Price Trend for the First Half of 2022


Asia

Calcium hypochlorite is formed via the reaction of slaked lime with chlorine gas. Hence, the prices of these feedstocks govern the price trends for calcium hypochlorite. During the first quarter, the Russian invasion of Ukraine caused crude oil prices to surge, thus creating unprecedented volatility in the global market. This volatility was quite visible in the Asian market, where slaked lime and chlorine gas prices soared. The booming downstream demand amid the trade restrictions and high upstream operating cost caused the prices of slaked lime to increase, averaging 240 USD/MT CFR Qingdao.

At the beginning of the second quarter, the prices reached a new high due to the western sanctions against Russia, trade bottlenecks and increased freight costs. However, the increasing covid cases, restrictions, and cautious buying activity of buyers due to demand destruction caused the prices of slaked lime to decrease. In the Indian market, the price of chlorine gas fell by 2% quarter-on-quarter basis. Hence, the price trends for calcium hypochlorite weakened towards the end of the second quarter as the feedstock prices relaxed.

Europe

The European market suffered the worst consequences of the Russia-Ukraine war. The soaring crude oil and gas prices triggered an acute energy crisis in Europe, causing double-digit inflation. Amid these inflated prices, the price of feedstock slaked lime averaged 340 USD/MT FD France. However, the prices stabilized and began to fall in the second quarter due to the uncertainty in market supply and baulking out of buyers.

North America

The price trends in US domestic market mimicked the global outlook. The price of limestone saw a hike of 10% during the months of march to June owing to the market inflation, demand, and supply side issues. The price of chlorine gas soared due to the shutdown of many Chlor-alkali plants in the US during the first quarter. However, the prices of calcium hypochlorite relaxed towards the end of the second quarter because of the demand destruction and lowered costs of primary feedstocks.

Production Processes:

  • Production of Calcium Hypochlorite from Calcium Hypochlorite Dihydrate by Drying; from Lime (Ca(OH)2) and Chlorine Gas

Via Slaked Lime and Chlorine gas: Calcium hypochlorite is produced by chlorinating an aqueous suspension of calcium hydroxide (slaked lime). Then the excess liquid is removed, forming a cake. This cake is further centrifugated to remove the impurities and obtain the desired product.
