Market Overview:

Specialty chemicals are specially formulated for use across various end-use industry verticals such as automotive, paint & coatings, plastics, construction, and food & beverages among others. Many of these industries are growing rapidly to meet the rising demand from consumers. Rapid industrialization, urbanization and the subsequent increase in purchase power have resulted in increased demand from an ever-growing consumer population. As a result, the demand for specialty chemicals has increased significantly.

There has been a visible shift in preference of specialty chemicals over commodity chemicals. Specialty chemicals are high value, low volume and highly economical chemicals that are used to achieve a particular effect or performance determined by consumer preferences. As such, many specialty chemicals are patented, leading to a highly competitive market with healthy growth. However, the wide variety of formulations which use different raw materials depend on the application, some of these have fluctuating prices. For instance, the fluctuating rates of crude oil are expected to hamper growth owing to the price escalation. It should be noted that volatile raw material costs do not encumber many specialty chemicals. Moreover, use of these chemicals to create unique formulations for cosmetic and personal care products has evolved. Market players in the cosmetics and personal care industry are collaborating with chemical providers to develop specialty chemicals which are unique to their formulation, thus providing market expansion opportunities.
