NEWARK, Del: The global sodium hydroxide market is anticipated to create lucrative opportunities over the assessment period by exhibiting a CAGR of 4.0% from 2023 to 2033. The global market is likely to reach a worth of US$ 31,108.9 million in 2023 and surpass a market valuation of US$ 46,048.7 million in 2033. The global sodium hydroxide market was observed to register a valuation of US$ 29,882.6 million in 2022.

According to the historical analysis conducted by Future Market Insights, the global sodium hydroxide market growth outlook remained extremely sluggish, registering a 1.1% CAGR from 2018 to 2022. A low growth outlook in the historical period was augmented by the pandemic impact in 2020, which resulted in a dip in the consumption volume between 2018 and 2022.      

Sodium hydroxide is commonly utilized to dissolve grease, oils, fats, as well as protein-based deposits. Also known as caustic soda, it is used in the production of active agents or builders, as well as household bleach products. Furthermore, it is also used in the saponification process, which involves converting vegetable oil into soap.

The chemical is utilized in the production of anionic surfactants for the saponification process. Increasing demand from key end-use industries such as water treatment, soaps, detergent manufacturing, and others is driving the demand for sodium hydroxide.

The worldwide market for sodium hydroxide is likely to gain momentum from key end-use industries in the long run. Innovative research & development in the field of chemical industry verticals are making their usage more convenient for key end-use industries.
