Although, specialty chemicals possess numerous benefits which are required in a broad range of industries, its synthetic nature could adversely affect the environment. This could curb the growth in the specialty chemicals market. Certain toxic substances in these products deteriorate the quality of food items and can be hazardous if consumed. Hence, various regulations have been implemented to limit such harmful effects of specialty chemicals on the environment and to protect human health. For example, organochlorine insecticide DDT and certain neonicotinoids are banned in European Union countries. France banned the use of glyphosates in garden & lawns. EU has also assigned maximum residue levels for various substances used in pesticides like pethoxamid, prothioconazole, thiamethoxam, dithiocarbamates, etc.
