About Caustic Soda. Caustic Soda (also known as Caustic Soda and NaOH) is a major inorganic, used in several industries. The majority of its production is used in the manufacture of chemicals, such as propylene oxide and sodium salts, however, the pulp and paper, soap and detergent, and textile industries are also great areas of application. Electrolysis of sodium chloride accounts for most of today’s installed capacity for sodium hydroxide.

The prices shown are average transaction prices, defined based on data reported in official trade statistics issued by the indicated countries. Such prices are indicative and do not necessarily characterize particular contract prices, spot transactions or spot bids in the locations specified. Rather, they reflect the average values practiced and are treated in order to remove outliers, in cases where significant distortions from historical tendencies are verified. Outlying prices may occur when quantities traded are small, in cases of errors in the trade statistics or price data reported, or when prices between specific countries (or companies in different countries) are differentiated.
When the release of official statistics of a given chemical is delayed, preliminary prices may also encompass estimations made by Intratec. Such estimations are based on prices fluctuations of (i) main raw materials employed in the production of that chemical; and/or (ii) main products manufactured from that chemical.
Finally, prices are expressed considering the International Chamber of Commerce’s Incoterms (FOB - Free on Board;; CIF - Cost, Insurance & Freight; DEL - Delivered), which indicate which costs that price includes. Unless otherwise stated, prices do not include Value Added Tax (VAT). All figures are quoted in US dollars per dry metric ton (USD/dry mt).
