  • When Does the Chlorine Tide Change? Ana Lopez, Director, Chlorine and Vinyls North America, IHS Markit - Chlorine is an important building block for both organic and inorganic chemicals. Therefore, it is important to know what the chlorine market will be like after the COVID-19 crisis is over.  In this presentation we will analyze the nature of the chlorine demand and why it is experiencing a low tide.  We will explain the link between gross domestic product (GDP) and the different uses for chlorine.  Later on, we will discuss what this demand change means for the chlor-alkali industry from a capacity perspective.  Does the industry need more capacity, and if so, when? We will wrap up the presentation with our outlook for chlorine values and economics, finding out which region is better prepared to ride the new chlorine wave.
