Summary Methodology

Chemical Distribution Market size is likely to grow with a significant rate from 2019 to 2025 owing to rising demand for specialty chemicals and increase in internet penetration. Using internet, the customers can directly make orders online on company websites. Such online transactions have increased in recent years which would in turn enhance the supply chain process by better management of time using delivery tracking. This has resulted in better transparency and communication between manufacturers and suppliers. The major activities of these suppliers include formulation, product mixing, packaging, storage, product handling & logistics. They also provide various customer services like technical services, regulatory compliance, packaging & labeling, documentation, etc. Such extensive services provided by the suppliers helps in reducing the cost burden on budding manufacturers and in turn increase growth in the chemical distribution market.

Rising demand for specialty chemicals in various industries would be another growth driver in the chemical distribution market. These specialty products are majorly consumed by end-users like construction, electronics, cosmetics, agriculture, etc. The global construction industry spending is likely to increase from about USD 9 trillion in 2014 to over USD 14 trillion by 2025. Such rising trend is a result of developments in the emerging economies, urbanization, smart city development projects, etc. Various specialty products like coatings, emulsions, adhesives, etc. are used to enhance the quality of the structures and increase its life. Growth in the construction industry is likely to drive the demand for specialty chemicals in the coming years. This would in turn augment the growth in the chemical distribution market. Rising chemical manufacturers in the Asia Pacific region would be another growth initiator in the market. As this region offers cost-effective factors of production, many manufacturers have set up their production plants in this region.

The chemical distribution market is segmented based on products, end-user and region. The major two product segments are commodity and specialty products. The specialty segment is likely to gain a significant growth rate in the coming years due to its rising demand from various industries. This product type is manufactured to perform specific functions and its distribution has been evolving in the past years in order to reach small customers. Rising developments in the construction and automotive sector is likely to propel the growth in this segment.

Based on end-user, the chemical distribution market is segmented into construction, automotive & transportation, electronics, food & beverage, packaging, energy, etc. Automotive & transportation is likely to occupy a significant share in the market owing to rising demand for products like coatings, paints, sealants, polymers etc. Rising trend in the production of light-weight vehicles has immensely increased the demand for polymer products in the automotive industry. Hence, the market has helped in making cost effective products offered by Asian manufacturers available in the global market.

Asia Pacific is likely to propel at a significant rate in the forecast timeframe due to presence of large number of small & medium sized chemical manufacturers. Major factors driving the growth in this region are rising consumer size, expanding digitalization, developing economy and expanding end-user industries.
