Capacity Additions in India to Boost Aluminum Production

Asia Pacific dominates the highest revenue among all regions and the region’s revenue is projected for aggressive growth in the chlor-alkali market. This is evident since companies in India are entering into strategic agreements to tap into value-grab opportunities. For instance, Grasim Industries of leading multinational conglomerate, Aditya Birla Group, announced to acquire the chlor-alkali business of KPR Industries in Andhra Pradesh to deploy expansion plans for aluminum in the state. Currently, the chlor-alkali market is valued at ~US$ 73 billion and is estimated to reach ~US$ 100 Bn by the end of 2030.

Manufacturers in the market for chlor-alkali are increasing efforts to increase their production capabilities in caustic soda to tap opportunities in India’s aluminum sector. As such, companies are strengthening their operations in the East Coast of India. Such strategies to strengthen operations are leading to capacity additions for caustic soda, which is extensively used in the production of aluminum. Manufacturers are unlocking incremental opportunities by exploring sectors of water treatment, viscose staple fiber, pharmaceuticals, and the likes.
