Caustic soda, also known as sodium hydroxide, is an odorless, highly corrosive, non-flammable white solid. It is generally produced as flakes or shiny pellets that make a slippery solution because it is highly water soluble. The 50% concentration of caustic soda is slightly viscous in nature. It is widely used as a general purpose industrial as well as commercial chemical in several process industries.

Caustic soda is usually produced by the electrolysis process of sodium chloride solution. The two majorly adopted processes used to produce caustic soda are diaphragm electrolytic cells or membrane electrolytic cells. The by-products produced during the process are hydrogen and chlorine.

The analysts forecast global caustic soda market to grow at a CAGR of 3.09% during the period 2016-2020.
