“The global chemical industry has been through a period of dramatic change over the last decade,” write BCC analysts. “Specialty chemicals are produced by a complex, interlinked industry. They are the chemical products sold on the basis of their performance or function, rather than their composition. Urbanization and industrialization have driven significant changes to trades and economies. The rising population and their increased dependency on food additives, consumer goods, textiles, and infrastructures are flourishing growth for specialty chemicals.”

Growth in the Water Treatment Market

Because of the growing concerns over the global water supply, chemical suppliers are increasingly interested in the water treatment market, the report adds. The market for water treatment chemicals is expected to grow at an estimated 6.2% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) globally from 2018 through 2023, fueled by new opportunities in both developing and developed regions. Growth is expected to be strongest in the developing world, with countries such as China and India undergoing growth that will more than double the global average.
