The specialty chemicals market in North America is continuing to expand despite the uncertainty presented by the volatility of oil and gas prices. According to the North American Specialty Chemicals Industry, Forecast to 2020 by Frost & Sullivan, the market is expected to grow by one to three percent between 2016 and 2018, with the lion’s share of the revenue generated by adhesives, paints, and coating chemicals. Furthermore, investment in the industry is not stopping, as new petrochemical projects could reach $20 billion with the potential for $23 billion on top of that by 2020.
The report also details the differing business models between chemical product types, as specialty chemicals present a ‘customer focus’ approach to meet individual needs, whereas basic chemicals advertise a ‘cost focus’ to help customers increase margins with lower prices on commoditized products.
