The Soda Ash Market Paradox

The soda ash industry is at the forefront of a global energy paradigm while the landscape of the market is varied. In 2023, soda ash demand growth was at record highs in China while flat glass was weak but offset by strong demand growth in solar glass and lithium carbonate. Lithium carbonate is a big driver for soda ash demand but recently the sentiment around the outlook of electric vehicles (EVs) has become weaker. China is leading the green energy transition, with a focus on the “new three” clean energy technologies – EVs, lithium-ion batteries, and solar panels – but Chinese manufacturing is hugely reliant on coal. Total global demand had positive growth in 2023 due to strong growth in China but there was weak growth in the rest of the world. Additionally, global operating rates were at record highs, yet the year ended with crashing prices.

At World Soda Ash, global experts and industry executives from all market sectors will convene to hear expert forecasts for the soda ash industry and allied industries, discuss market dynamic challenges, opportunities, and explore the influence of evolving global market trends, including how Chinese markets will impact the world.

Join more than 300 participants from across the globe to gain the latest insight and deep analysis into the soda ash markets as you connect with your peers and industry professionals.

This year’s program will feature a one-day training workshop, two days of expert content, and numerous functions including coffee breaks and lunch, evening receptions, and an offsite experience tour in Malta as we focus on The Soda Ash Market Paradox.

These offered further understanding, and a relaxed atmosphere especially to me as a first-time attendee.
