Comments · 432 Views

The growing production of paints and coatings and pharmaceutical products is likely to be the major driver for the global chemical intermediate market over the forecast period.

The chemical intermediate industry is gaining an advantage as the plastic industry is augmenting its production rate. These components are produced at every step of the needed chemical reaction that would deliver the desired substance. Its utility is highly valued as it furthers the process of reaction. The global chemical intermediate industry is expecting a surge in sale over the review period (????-2022), reveals Market Research Future (MRFR) in a detailed report. The report further minutely analyses the factors that can drive the chemical intermediate industry forward. Apart from, plastic industry, coating industry finds great use of these highly reactive chemicals with a shorter span of life. Aviation industry also spurs the growth as these chemicals are often used as de-icing agents in the runways. Furthermore, its use in the manufacturing of detergents, elastic textile fibers, pharmaceuticals, and agriculture can bolster the expansion rate of the chemical intermediate industry.

On the flip side, the chemical intermediate industry can witness a setback as the prices of the raw agents have become volatile. This volatility can affect the availability and make the final product price oscillate; a quite aggressive factor that can control the chemical intermediate industry scenario.


The global chemical intermediate industry can be segmented by type, application, and form.

By type, the chemical intermediate industry includes phenol, acetone, methyl ethyl ketoxime (MEKO), and others. MEKO gains significant traction owing to its usage in the coating industry.

Based on application, the chemical intermediate industry can be segmented into pharmaceuticals, automotive, agriculture, and others. The automotive sector can find its use quite alluring for both coating and manufacturing of plastic components.

Based on form, the chemical intermediate industry consists liquid, solid, and gaseous.

Regional Analysis:

Geographic analysis of the chemical intermediate industry reveals a detailed region-specific analysis which includes North America, Europe, Asia Pacific (APAC), and Rest-of-the-World (RoW).

North America’s impact on the market is of great value. The region has the U.S., Canada, and Mexico as market contributors. Densely populated industrial pockets and the presence of a vast number of verticals are the reasons behind the regional chemical intermediates market growth.

Europe’s chemical intermediate industry gets bolstered by countries such as Germany, France, Italy, and the U.K. These countries owing to their industrial superiority, especially automotive, are contributing to the regional market growth. The APAC region is touted to be the fastest growing region during the forecast period. Textile and leather industries are expected to trigger the chemical intermediate industry growth in the region. Textile industry can also have significant control over the chemical intermediate industry in the Middle East and many African countries such as Egypt.

Competitive Insights:

The chemical intermediate industry is highly lucrative. With branches spread across verticals, this industry has emerged as an opportunity for many market players. These companies employ several strategies that include merger, acquisition, collaboration, product launch, and other methods to have better market exposure and in the process, they help the market grow. 

Companies are now focusing much on producing environmentally sustainable products to lessen the production of carbon footprint. These types of chemical intermediates are derived from biomass feedstocks. Advonex’s hydrocarbon ingredients, Beta Process Bioenergy’s biomass processing from complete sugar beets, and Vertoro’s crude lignin oil can be considered exemplary.

Major market influencers profiled in the report for the chemical intermediate industry are INVISTA, SI Group Inc, Arizona Chemical, Chevron Oronite, ExxonMobil Chemical, Biosynth, R K Synthesis, AdvanSix Chemical, Jay chemicals, Himalaya chemicals, BASF, Dow, Aceto, and others.
