Market Overview:

The Paper Chemicals Market is a high value but slow growth market. The global market is close to saturation in terms of new investments. The paper chemicals market is antici[ated to reach a total of USD 40.8 billion by the end of the forecast period at a slow pace of 2.31%.

Recent Developments:

  • BASF and Solenis have finished a merger of the paper, water and chemicals business. The newly merged company named under Solenis brand will function in the fields of pulp, paper, oil, and gas. BASF will be owning 49 % of the new company whereas the other 51 % is combined owned by Solenis management and funds.
  • The European Commission has imposed a new set of Ecolabel Criteria for graphic and tissue paper production focussing on banning the use of harmful chemicals emitted in the manufacturing process.

Paper Chemicals Market Value and Growth:

The Global Paper Chemicals Market size was around USD 36.4 Billion by revenue, at the end of 2018. It is anticipated to grow at a 2.31 % CAGR to reach close to USD 40.8 Billion by 2023.

Paper Chemicals Market Drivers and Restraints:

The growing demand for paper-based packaging is one of the drivers to the global market for paper chemicals market. The use of oxygen and ozone in large quantities as bleaching agents is expected to drive the global paper chemicals market in the forecast period. Also, the expansion in pulp producers’ capacity output in regions like the Asia Pacific and South America is expected to drive the demand for paper chemicals. However, since the market is stabilized, as in the demand is properly supplied with, the global market for paper chemicals is projected to have a constant market value with no major deviations. This restrains the expansion or new investments across the globe.

Paper Chemicals Market Segmentation Analysis:

By Form

Based on the form of the chemicals the global paper chemicals market is segmented into Specialty Chemicals, Commodity Chemicals, and Others. Of the mentioned forms of chemicals, the growth of the specialty chemicals segment dominates over others. The specialty chemicals segment is the largest in terms of market size due to the demand for specialty paper in the packaging industry of food & beverages. The increased demand for aesthetics and durability of paper-based products has propelled the demand for the specialty paper which intern drives the global market for paper chemicals.

By Type

Based on the type of the chemicals to make paper the global paper chemicals market is categorized into Pulp Chemicals, Process Chemicals, Functional Chemicals, and Others. Among the mentioned types of paper chemicals, the pulp chemicals are the largest segment and are anticipated to have the highest growth rate in the aforementioned forecast period. The demand for bleach chemicals like hydrogen peroxide, chlorine oxide, sodium chlorate, and sodium bisulfite is the main reason for the growth of this segment of the global market.

Paper Chemicals Market Geographical Analysis:

By geography, the Paper Chemicals Market is segmented as Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle-East & Africa, and North America. The Asia Pacific had the largest percentage of market share paper chemicals market as of 2018. It is projected to be the fastest-growing region in the paper chemicals market during 2018 to 2023, due to the increasing demand for growing industries and scope of future opportunities, mainly in developing countries like Japan, China, and India. North America was second in lead in the global paper chemical market in 2018 and is anticipated to continue in this pace during the forecast period. The everlasting demand from the well established industrial end users is the reason for the stable market growth in this region.

European market value and share are similar to but slightly lesser than that of North America. The European market is also expected to have stable growth between 2018 and 2023. The growth in these regions is considerably low due to the regional advantages offered in the Asia Pacific such as cheap labor and ease of resource availability. This makes the market centered in the Asia Pacific making Europe and North America slow growing regional market. The Middle East & Africa and Latin America regions, being in the low developing countries due to the contribution of low GDP countries, have fewer chances for industry growth. Hence, the Paper Chemicals Market in these regions is slow growing in nature.
