Increased chemical consumption throughout the construction, pharmaceutical, polymers and resins industries and high complexity will likely increase customer reach for chemicals distributors in years to come. The increasing trend towards sustainable and green infrastructure drives demand for specialty construction chemicals in the USA. Thus, even from the developed economies such as the USA, Germany and the UK, specialty product distributors benefit from the demands for such chemicals.

Distribution Of Commodity And Specialty Chemicals By Third Parties Is Anticipated To Witness Significant Growth
For the industrial and manufacturing industries, the chemical industry manufactures and delivers important raw material. These feedstocks are distributed by third parties or directly sold by producers to end-users. Third parties should be expected to distribute the products and specialty chemicals to a considerable degree of growth than products directly to end users due to the outsourcing of value-added services, for example logistics, packaging, blending, waste disposal, inventory management and technical training.

The U.S. market for chemical distribution is driven by sustained construction activities
Sustainable building activities and high consumer purchasing power drive the American chemical distribution sector. Business investment in the housing sector is increasing pace and helping the chemical industry to create momentum. It is expected that this tendency would result in the manufacturing sector expanding significantly and will have a beneficial impact on the general market. The growing trend of sustainable and green infrastructure in the US is driving demand for specialised building chemicals. Thus even from established economies such as the US, Germany and the UK, specialty product distributors benefit from the demand for such chemical substances.

The Growth In Other End-Use Industries Is Anticipated To Drive The Global Demand For Chemicals
Increase of the worldwide demand for chemicals is predicted in various end-user sectors, such as automotive, pharmaceutical and electronics, along with robust expansion in the industries. The third-party distribution channel should also profit from this factor. Globally, suppliers utilize varied channel methods including product knowledge, local expertise and a robust logistics network in a highly fragmented market, so that they acquire a competitive advantage.

The third-party distribution companies are also expected to encounter intense competition from direct suppliers, in addition to rising industrial competitiveness. These include multinationals like BASF SE, Arkema, Honeywell International and Lanxess AG. These firms have considerable investment capacity and a strong network and large geographic presence with end-users. Direct sales channels give bulk discounts and lower profit margins for third parties.

Major Manufacturers Are Shifting Their Manufacturing Bases In The Middle East And Africa (MEA)
Due to the inexpensive availability of petrochemical foodstuffs, major firms are moving their production centers in the Middle East and Africa (MEA). However, due to the low labor costs and fast economic growth, some other businesses are growing their production in Asia. In the last few years also, specialty chemical consumption and retail activities have been driven by trade liberalisation, breaking up of numerous economic barriers, spread of advanced processing technology, and rapid growth in industrialization in Asia, along with increasing living standards in many developing countries.

Asia Pacific Emerged As The Leading Regional Market
Asia Pacific was the dominant geographic market in 2020, representing 58.6% of total revenues. Increased production activity and a substantial increase in disposable income per capita is predicted to stimulate demand over the projection period. Countries like China, India, Malaysia, Vietnam and Thailand witness the development of automotive, building, electrical and electronic sectors. In addition, the region's chemical production is expected to increase at an incredible rate, with large businesses concentrating on high-chance markets. In Asia Pacific, commodity compounds are expected to continue to be the leading segment.
