Chemicals and materials, independently or in combination with each other find a wide range of application across various end-use industries such as automotive, power & energy, agriculture, food & beverages, instrumentation, consumer goods, aerospace & defense, healthcare, and IT. The global chemicals and materials market has wide range of application areas such as dental silica, flow aids, crop protection, animal nutrition, active pharmaceutical ingredients, dietary supplements, preservatives, flame retardants, surface ingredients, and matting agents among others.
Asia Pacific is expected to retain its dominant position in the chemicals & materials market over the forecast period (2016 – 2024), spearheaded by China, India, and Japan due to rampant growth of end-use industries.
Chemicals & Materials Market Outlook – Surge in Electronics and Construction Chemicals Industries Augmenting Market Growth
Increasing demand for electronic devices across the globe, especially in key regions such as North America, Asia Pacific and the Middle East, is driving demand for electronic chemicals. Electronic chemicals such as PCB laminate, silicon wafer, specialty gases, and wet chemicals are widely used in a wide number of electronic applications such as computers, electronic circuit, diodes, capacitors, home appliances, and entertainment systems. Asia Pacific contributes the largest share in electronics market, which is the largest end-user segment for electronic chemicals. Countries in the region that boost market growth include China, Japan, Taiwan, South Korea, and India. However, the markets in North America and Europe are expected to witness slower growth rate over the forecast period.
Chemicals & Materials Market Challenges – Reduce Environmental Impact
Effective and eco-friendly mode of waste disposal, adopted by various regions, act as a key challenge for chemicals & materials manufacturing companies. Stringent laws are enforced on the disposal, only after treatment of all wastewater, gases, and semi-solid waste. The Ministry of Environment and Forest (MoEF) of India, on December 23, 2010, implemented water prevention and control pollution act 1974 and air prevention and control pollution act 1981.
Key players in the chemicals & materials market include BASF-SE, The Dow Chemical Company, Sinopec, SABIC, ExxonMobil, Formosa Plastics, LyondelBasell Industry, DuPont, Ineos, Bayer, Mitsubishi Chemicals, Royal Dutch Shell, LG Chem Ltd., Braskem, Air liquid, AkzoNobel, The Linde Group, Sumitomo Chemicals, Mitsui Chemicals, Evonik Industries. The chemicals & materials industry is highly fragmented, with a large number of global players and regional players. In the recent past, the market has witnessed a trend of consolidation through strategic mergers and acquisitions. For instance, in March, 2017, the European Union approved the proposed merger of Dow Chemical and DuPont as part of a US$ 62 billion deal. The companies were subsequently segmented into three separate publicly traded companies, which focus on agriculture, material science, and specialty chemicals, respectively.
