Drivers & Restraints-
Increasing Demand from Building & Construction Industry to Aid Growth
The International Aluminum Institute declared that in 2019, the total alumina production was 131,910 thousand metric tons.

It is therefore mainly demanded by containers & packaging, transportation, and building & construction industries. Besides, the usage of hybrid cars is set to surge in the upcoming years because of their ability to enhance fuel economy. The metal can also reduce the weight of vehicles. These factors are set to propel the caustic soda market growth in the near future. However, caustic soda is highly corrosive which can cause severe damage to eyes. It may hinder growth.
