Chlorine (Cl) is a yellow gas & generally available as a part of ionic compounds (chlorides like Sodium Chloride) in the earth's crust and seawater. It's predominantly used to develop commercial bleaches and disinfectants because of its high electronegativity and is produced commercially by the Chlor-alkali process. It can be very poisonous at high concentrations. It also is an essential element in the manufacturing of consumer products.

According to the publisher, the global Chlorine market is expected to witness a moderate growth rate during the forecast period. It is expected to grow at a CAGR of around 4.2%. Various factors drive the Chlorine market. Chlorine is a vital ingredient in the production of PVC, which is in demand in the automotive, construction, and packaging industries. It is also used in wastewater treatment. On the other hand, Chlorine is a highly reactive gas that needs to be handled and stored properly. The vehicles that are used for the transportation of Chlorine have specially designed containers. This increases overall costs. Due to its toxic nature, governments are placing stringent environmental norms that may be a restraint for the market. In terms of Applications EDC/PVC segment is likely to dominate the market owing to the high demand from end-users.

The Asia-Pacific region dominates the global chlorine market due to the increasing demand from construction and chemical industries in countries like China and India. Companies and Governments are making considerable investments in wastewater treatment, which uses Chlorine. This is followed by Europe and North America.

The global Chlorine market is partially fragmented. The major players in the global Chlorine market are The Olin Corporation, Nouryon, Ercros S.A, BASF SE, Tata Chemicals Limited, among others.
