Domestic production of natural and synthetic soda ash increased because of the 48% rise in exports, mainly to Asia and South America. Several proposed international soda ash projects were announced that could influence the size of the future U.S. export market. Domestic apparent consumption of soda ash increases slightly as demand improved for soda ash in soap and detergents, pulp and paper, and chemicals. The growing market displacement of glass containers, the largest end use of soda ash, by polyethylene terephthalate bottles continued to severely affect domestic soda ash sales.
