New Report Released: - Global Chlorine Market 2017-2021

The author of the report recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global chlorine market: Akzo Nobel, Hanwha Corporation, Occidental Petroleum, Olin Corporation, and Westlake Chemical.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: BASF, Formosa Plastics, Packed Chlorine, and Tata Chemicals.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from the research team said: “One trend in the market is market consolidation through M&As. M&As in the global chlorine market is expected to continue or build on its strong run during the forecast period as both strategic and private equity buyers seek opportunities. Market factors that are driving this activity are strong corporate balance sheets, readily available financing at attractive rates, and underpinning high deal valuations.”

According to the report, one driver in the market is growing uses in the pharmaceutical industry. It is estimated that chlorine chemistry is crucial to the manufacture of more than 70% of the prescriptions that were sold by the pharmaceutical industry in the global market. Drugs containing chlorine are used to treat numerous medical conditions and diseases, including high cholesterol, cancer, diabetes, stomach ulcers, depression, anemia, high blood pressure, asthma, epilepsy, and inflammation. Chlorine is used in the final step of drug formulation of approximately 25% of medicines. In other cases, chlorine plays a supporting role in the synthesis of drugs.

Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is logistic problems related to hazardous chemicals. Safe transportation of hazardous chemicals such as chlorine, across the globe, is one of the biggest concerns. A lucrative growth in the chemical industry has led to an increase in the safety concerns of chemical logistics owing to the steep increase witnessed by freight traffic. The lack of untrained professionals for handling packaging and transportation of hazardous chemicals and the lack of awareness about new and emerging trends and technologies are some of the major issues faced worldwide.

The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
