Caustic Soda Market is expected to reach $62.27 Billion by 2028 | Rising Demand for Caustic Soda in the Pharmaceutical Industry



Westford, USA, Jan. 16, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — SkyQuest’s analysis of the Caustic Soda market provides valuable insights. Caustic soda accounts for more than 40% of total inorganic chemicals and is used in a variety of applications including pulp and paper, chemicals, alumina, soaps and detergents, and textiles. The increase of end-use industries is closely related to the growth of the caustic soda market. Increased demand from the pulp and paper sectors, as well as the textile industry, is likely to drive market expansion throughout the forecast period.

Some key players dominating the global caustic soda market are Dow Chemical Company, Formosa Plastics Corporation, PPG Industries, INEOS Group Limited, Tosoh Corporation, Hanwha Chemical Corporation, Solvay SA, FMC Corporation, and Occidental Petroleum Corporation.

The manufacturing of caustic soda is an energy-intensive process. This results in high manufacturing costs, which hampers market expansion. Price volatility is another problem that market participants will experience over the projection period. Caustic soda is anticipated to be the sole commodity chemical with a price volatility of 5 to 15% in the spot market. Increased R&D initiatives for the development of new goods and manufacturing methods are projected to provide market participants with new opportunities. To meet the increased demand, major market players will concentrate on capacity development and collaborative ventures in growing countries such as India and China.

The full import-export analysis of Caustic Soda is available in the trade analysis section of the report.

Increasing alumina demand in major end-use industries

Caustic soda is used to refine raw bauxite to produce white power alumina, which is then melted to produce aluminum. According to the International Aluminium Institute, global alumina production in March 2021 was 11.832 million tonnes, bringing total output in the first quarter of 2021 to 34.199 million tonnes. Production in March increased by 11.41% month on month from 10.620 million tonnes and by 7.50% year on year from 11.006 million tonnes. Aluminum is refined from raw bauxite ore in an energy-intensive process that relies heavily on caustic soda (NaOH) as a dissolving agent. Caustic soda is utilized because it is inexpensive and widely available. Aluminum’s primary end-use sectors are building and construction, transportation, and containers and packaging. Aluminum is used in the building and construction business to produce frames for doors and windows, staircases, heating systems, roofs, furniture, and other items. It is also utilized in the construction of structures such as buildings, bridges, and roadways.

Belgian Commitment to Partnership Supports a New Frontier of Europe-US Space Research




BRUSSELS, Dec. 10, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Belgian Prime Minister Alexander De Croo has travelled to Houston, United States, to meet Raphaël Liégeois, the Belgian career astronaut selected as part of the European Space Agency (ESA) astronaut class of 2022. De Croo’s visit coincides with the ESA cohort’s familiarisation trip to NASA’s Johnson Space Centre, which is the precursor to a further two years of training, delivered in Houston, to prepare the astronauts for their respective missions on the International Space Station. The visit signals a new phase of the long-standing collaboration between Europe and the United States on space research and exemplifies Belgium’s commitment to partnerships in facing global challenges.

Belgium’s expertise in aerospace, and in science more generally, is internationally recognised – in terms of both training and industry. Belgium is a founding member of the ESA and its fifth-largest funder. The country’s support of the ESA shows its commitment to shaping the development of Europe’s space capability and ensuring that investment in space continues to deliver benefits to the citizens of Europe and the world.
“For Belgians, the sky isn’t the limit, the universe is,” said De Croo. “Today, we are very proud to see Raphaël take this important step in his career as an astronaut. He will be an important role model for many generations of STEM students to come. Space research and innovation hold particular importance for Belgium; they are powerful economic drivers which foster the growth of high-tech industries and create jobs – as evidenced by the number of Belgian companies on the cutting edge of aeronautics.” 
The 17 members of the ESA astronaut class of 2022 were selected from a pool of over 23,000 applicants. The process, designed to bring together the finest scientific minds that Europe has to offer, took place over a period lasting 18 months.
The selection of Raphaël Liégeois is testament to Belgium’s focus on embracing openness, driven by innovation, partnerships, and diversity, to create solutions that drive progress for all.

Savory & Partners: Digital Nomad Visas Sparking a Migration Boom




DUBAI, UAE, Dec. 9, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — The simplicity and lax requirements of digital nomad visas have made them easily accessible, and countries like Portugal and Spain, which have excellent infrastructure, great internet connection, and an outstanding standard of living, draw in more digital nomads by the day, according to experts at Dubai-headquartered citizenship and residency by investment advisors Savory and Partners.

A recent research quoted by the company estimates that there are 16.9 million digital nomads roaming the globe. This is a whopping 162% increase from 2019, just four years earlier.
As soon as Portugal introduced its digital nomad visa in October of 2022, the applications started pouring in. While the government hasn’t announced the number of applications it has received, Portugal’s Labour Minister did announce that the country approved 550 applications within the first six months.
Two months after launching its visa in September of 2021, Greece received 2,918 applications, approving an astonishing 1,693 applicants. The government is yet to release any new statistics, but going off that outstanding start it is safe to assume it is still garnering massive attention.
Germany also boasts impressive numbers, having issued a total of 3,638 visas in just one year since the introduction of its visa in 2018.
According to Residency Malta, the government branch responsible for the digital nomad visa, it has issued 1,041 visas to date, with an average approval rate of 78%.
Croatia, one of the first countries to introduce a pure digital nomad visa in early 2021 as a response to the rise in remote workers, has approved 680 applications, while 672 are still pending approval.
Not just Europe
“It’s not just Europe but even Barbados’ digital nomad visa, dubbed the Welcome Stamp, has been doing outstandingly well, receiving a total of 3,511 applications between 2020 and 2022”, a digital nomad specialist at Savory & Partners reports.
While digital nomads typically use visa-free access or visas to stay in countries for a few months at a time before moving on to the next, digital nomad visas provide a sense of comfort and stability that aligns perfectly with their lifestyle, giving them ample time to enjoy the country they are in before moving on to the next.
Unsurprising demand
The rapid growth in application numbers and the surging demand for digital nomad visas isn’t surprising. They are extremely simple to apply to, have fast processing times ranging from a few days to a couple of months, and they do not require any business establishment or investment.
Portugal’s digital nomad visa, for example, only requires applicants to prove a monthly income of €3,040 per month, while Spain’s visa has a lower threshold of just €2,160 per month.
Savory & Partners is an accredited agent for multiple governments where citizenship by investment is offered. The company has coverage in over 20 jurisdictions, including Europe and was the first firm to obtain all five authorised agent licenses for the governments of the Caribbean Islands.
