Chapter 9 List of Customers

Specialty chemicals are also known as effect chemicals or specialties. These chemicals can either be a single chemical formulation or a combination of several chemicals whose composition significantly contributes to performance of the final product. Specialty chemicals are a collection of low volume, relatively high value chemicals that are recognized for their performance-enhancing properties. Specialty chemicals are marketed either for their function or performance rather than their composition. It is of extreme importance that companies operating in the specialty chemicals market be equipped with extensive knowledge regarding development of appropriate formulations for processing of the final product. These chemicals are used in the manufacture of a wide variety of products including cosmetic additives, adhesives, elastomers, polymers, agrochemicals, surfactants, and textile chemicals. 

Different product segments of the specialty chemicals market include agrochemicals, polymers & plastic additives, construction chemicals, electronic chemicals, cleaning chemicals, surfactants, lubricants & oilfield chemicals, specialty coatings, paper & textile chemicals, food additives, adhesives & sealants, and others (flavors & fragrances, catalyst, feed additives, printing inks, cosmetic chemicals, water management chemicals, nutraceutical ingredients, etc.). Agrochemicals accounted for major share of the specialty chemicals market in 2014. Construction chemicals is expected to be the fastest-growing segment owing to increasing number of commercial and residential buildings constructed every year. Construction chemicals are specialty products used in buildings and other construction structures to increase their shelf life. They also provide protection from environmental hazards. These chemicals impart several properties that help meet the aesthetic, functional, and design requirements of civil structures. Polymers & plastics additives enhance the performance of agricultural films, automotive interior and exterior parts, fibers, coatings, electronic components, and a variety of other plastic applications. Electronic chemicals are those that are utilized in manufacturing equipment and electronic components. Cleaning chemicals are used in removing stains, dirt, bad smells, etc., on floors or surfaces to maintain clean and hygienic surroundings. Treatment with paper chemicals during the paper manufacturing process provides gloss, opacity, brightness, image quality, and printability. Adhesives & sealants are used in numerous applications such as packaging, construction, flooring, furniture, footwear, and automotive.

Asia Pacific accounted for over 45% of the specialty chemicals market share in 2014, followed by North America and Europe. The specialty chemicals market in Asia Pacific is anticipated to exhibit the fastest-growth rate, expanding at a CAGR of over 6% between 2015 and 2023. High consumption of specialty chemicals in China and India is primarily boosting growth of the specialty chemicals market in Asia Pacific. Other countries in Southeast Asia also constituted significant share of the specialty chemicals market in 2014. Demand for specialty chemicals in North America and Europe is expected to be sluggish during the forecast period due to stringent rules and regulations imposed on the usage of synthetic chemicals in these regions. However, the outlook for both these regions appears positive due to advancements in technology. Outlook for the specialty chemicals market in Latin America is likely to be positive owing to rising industrialization in Brazil. Demand for specialty chemicals in Middle East & Africa (MEA) is anticipated rise at a steady pace due to ongoing and upcoming construction projects in the region.

Various global companies operate in the specialty chemicals market. Key companies include BASF SE, The Dow Chemical Company, Bayer AG, E. I. du Pont de Nemours and Company (DuPont), INEOS Group AG., Ashland Inc., Clariant AG, Huntsman Corporation, Arkema S.A., Evonik Industries AG, Chevron Philips Chemical Company, Syngenta AG, Albemarle Corporation, Chemtura Corporation, Eastman Chemical Company, Solvay, and Akzo Nobel N.V.
