Specialty pulp and paper chemicals are used as raw materials by paper industry to produce specialty paper. It helps modify and enhance the functional properties such as color, brightness, resistance to water, and strength, of the paper. It also reduces the consumption of water and energy. Also, specialty chemicals used in the process of specialty paper production reduces the production of paper waste, thus the raw material required for the production of specialty paper is less as compared to normal paper. Specialty paper is used in various applications, which include writing, packaging, labeling, printing, and others. Commonly used specialty chemicals include chlorine, chlorine dioxide, hydrogen peroxide, hypochlorous acid, sodium dithionite, sodium peroxide, sodium hypo-chlorite, sodium hydroxide, sodium hydrosulfite, and others. These chemicals are widely used as bleaching, chelating, and sizing agents at different stages of paper manufacturing such as wood handling, pulp bleaching, de-inking, screening, and printing. Moreover, several types of specialty chemicals such as coatings, pigments, and dyes are also used to give a final color and texture to specialty paper for packaging and printing applications. Increase in use of graphic papers, diazo papers, gift wraps, posters, tissue paper, and other specialty papers provide potential opportunities for market expansion to players in the paper industry in the upcoming years.

Specialty paper is required for primary, secondary, and tertiary packing of goods. Also, it has great demand in hospitals, retail, and others. Thus, the growth in demand for specialty paper from various industries drives the specialty pulp and paper chemical market. The increase in use of dry-strength additives, wet-strength resins, fluorescent whitening, and sizing agents to improve the quality and strength of paper also augments the demand for functional chemicals, which in turn, boosts the growth of the specialty pulp and paper chemicals market. In addition, recycling in the paper industry also increases the demand for different specialty chemicals, thereby driving the pulp and paper chemicals market. However, volatility in the price of raw material and stringent regulations associated with the use of chemicals used in the production of specialty papers, are expected to hamper the growth of the market. Nonetheless, several benefits associated with the use of specialty chemicals such as improvement in productivity and reduced consumption of water, raw materials, and energy result in the decrease of the overall cost of operation, thus providing potential opportunities for the growth of the specialty pulp and paper chemicals market.
