Additionally, January saw a reduction in the overall price trend due to fewer inquiries and enough material supply from Chinese manufacturers. The product's demand was seen to be weaker than anticipated.

In the month of March, sodium hydroxide flakes were estimated to cost USD 517/MT FOB Qingdao.

2020 saw a negative impact on the global sodium hydroxide market as a result of the unheard-of COVID-19 decline. Due to the nationwide lockdowns that the government authorities imposed, several businesses, end-user industries, and other facilities were severely impacted all over the world.

Sodium hydroxide, also known as lye or caustic soda, is an inorganic compound. It appears to be a white solid ionic compound composed of sodium cations (Na+) and hydroxide anions (OH). It is a crystalline solid that melts without decomposition at 318 °C or 604 °F and boils at 388 °C or 2,530 °F. Sodium hydroxide is a highly caustic base and an alkali that decomposes proteins at normal room temperature. It is highly miscible in water and readily absorbs moisture and CO2 from the air. It is, however, insoluble in ether and other non-polar solvents.

Production Processes

  • Production of Sodium Hydroxide from Chlor-Alkali Process

This procedure involves the electrolysis of sodium chloride (brine). As a result, three products are produced: hydrogen, chlorine, and sodium hydroxide. The cathode and anode release hydrogen and chlorine, respectively, while the solution contains sodium hydroxide.
