The global chemical distribution market size is projected to reach USD 317.47 billion by 2025, expanding at a CAGR of 5.7% from 2018 to 2025, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The chemicals industry is adopting innovative solutions to address impeding factors in the supply chain system. An efficient and optimum supply channel is critical for industry growth. Growing concerns regarding safety during transportation of hazardous materials have made distributors to carry out sustainable practices in their operations to maintain credibility among suppliers.
Carbon emission reduction is one of the first priorities of distributors. M&As by multinational distributors can be perceived as consolidating efforts and have largely been influential in achieving economies of scale and focus on specialized sales strategies, and rationalizing distributor base. Increasing sales of specialty businesses and innovations in development of green building blocks are key factors driving the industry growth. Compared to emerging markets, the impact of this factor is higher in developed economies due to technological sophistication in R&D efforts by domestic producers.
Commodities, such as polymers and petroleum distillates, contributed over USD 115 billion in revenues for the year 2017. During the same period, CASE (coatings, adhesives, sealants and elastomers) segment was valued at over USD 40 billion. High demand from end-use industries, such as automotive, construction and pharmaceuticals, is likely to drive the segment.
