wallpapers News 2020-06-14
From 2012 to 2013, due to the healthy growth of detergents chemical products, the domestic dem for soda ash in India increased steadily by 10-11%. However, most of the domestic dem was met by imported soda ash. The import rate was as high as 15-20%, about 650000 tons.

since October 2012, the price of soda ash in India has tended to be stable at RP 1150 per 50 kg. In March, the price increased to RS 1165 per 50 kg. As a result, transportation has become a serious problem. 80% of the country's soda ash is produced in Gujarat. A senior official of Gujarat Chemical Company Limited said: 'the cost of transportation from Gujarat to the southern Eastern markets is $75 to $80 per ton. For Chinese or European manufacturers, shipping to these ports costs only $35 to $40.

have been aware of this problem, the government has implemented anti-dumping measures against some exporting countries. Industry insiders say 'costs have increased by 5-10%, however, companies cannot pass on these costs to consumers.

an official of the alkali Manufacturers Association of India said, "the high cost of electricity infrastructure has led to increased production costs. We are not opposed to importing cheap products without affecting the whole industry. India's capacity in January 2013 was 218000 tons, up from 198000 tons in October 2012.
