Specialty Chemicals Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2021-2026

Market Overview:

The global specialty chemicals market grew at a CAGR of around 5% during 2015-2020. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to exhibit moderate growth during 2021-2026. Keeping in mind the uncertainties of COVID-19, we are continuously tracking and evaluating the direct as well as the indirect influence of the pandemic. These insights are included in the report as a major market contributor.

These chemicals are also known as specialties or effect chemicals and are widely utilized as ingredients in finished products to improve the manufacturing process. These chemicals can be single-chemical entities or formulations producing high-value chemicals, which are used in products vital to consumers. As compared to commodity chemicals, specialty chemicals are produced in lesser volumes. Consequently, they find applications in a wide range of industry verticals, such as chemicals, agriculture, automotive, aerospace, pharmaceutical, and food and beverage (F&B).

The escalating demand for high-performance and function-specific chemicals across different end use industries, such as oil and gas, pulp and paper, personal care and cosmetics, represents one of the significant factors propelling the growth of the specialty chemicals market. Apart from this, the rising concerns about the harmful effects of conventional chemicals on the environment have led to an increase in the demand for user- and environment-friendly specialty chemicals. As a result, leading players are focusing on the development and marketing of specialty chemicals in these variants to expand their product portfolio and improve their overall sales. These players are also investing in research and development (R&D) activities to provide innovative and custom-made specialty chemicals for target applications. However, with the sudden outbreak of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), the consequent imposition of lockdowns by governing authorities of various countries and temporary closure of various manufacturing units, the market has been adversely impacted. It will experience growth once lockdown restrictions are relaxed.
