Substantial expansion of electric vehicles sector in Europe should drive regional market growth
Europe is projected to surpass USD 2 billion by the end of the forecast timeframe. Favorable regulatory environment in the region has resulted in the expansion of the electric vehicle (EV) industry thereby driving the requirement for flat glass. Soda ash enhances the shaping of glass and reduces melting temperatures which makes it ideal for glassmaking. European consumers are witnessing increasing access to electric vehicles of their favorite brands and government subsidies to boost EV adoption should accelerate the sodium carbonate market value.
Increasing implementation of CO2 standards to reduce greenhouse emissions from the transport sector, which have increased in recent years should accelerate the growth of sodium carbonate market. Automakers are introducing a range of new, compliant models of electric vehicles to comply with regulations and prevent fines. Emission regulations are likely to get more stringent in the upcoming years which requires automakers to electrify their fleet at a faster rate and engage in innovations.
Leading sodium carbonate industry manufacturers are majorly focusing on strategic agreements such as acquisitions, mergers and partnerships to increase their market share and distribution network. Companies are also engaged in capacity expansion to satisfy rising demand for soda ash and attain competitive advantage. The major producers of sodium carbonate include Tata Chemicals, Solvay SA, Nirma, Genesis Alkali, Hubei Yuhua, Sanyou Chemicals, CIECH, Shandong Haihua Group and Sisecam.
