Large businesses with diverse portfolios and smart and contemporary management approaches dominate the specialty chemicals industry. Advanced ceramic materials, construction chemicals, cosmetic chemicals, water management chemicals, oil field chemicals, textile chemicals, and food additives are products which dominate the specialty chemicals market. Rubber processing chemicals and specialized paper chemicals are also some by-products of specialty chemicals production process.

In FY 2020, the specialty chemicals market was valued at INR 2,441.66 Bn. It is expected to reach INR 6,995.86 Bn by FY 2027, expanding at a CAGR of ~16.66% during the FY 2021 - FY 2027 period. Scale of operations is a key differentiator across categories such as agrochemicals, adhesives, and elastomers because it promotes in achieving a bigger portion of revenue from customers while generating economies in large scale. The market is characterized by the presence of a substantial unorganized sector. It is assumed to be bigger than the organized sector in some sub-segments, such as basic ingredients, but is difficult to measure. In their respective end-user segments, the unorganized players cater mostly to small, unorganized clients. Companies in the unorganized sector which deal in flavors and fragrances serve mostly the tobacco and incense stick markets. Unorganized players offering surfactants serve local, unbranded soap, and detergent makers.

Impact of COVID-19:

In the past few years, the market experienced a steady upward trend, proving to be one of the most robust parts of India’s manufacturing sector. The COVID-19 pandemic and the nationwide lockdown to control it disrupted manufacturing. While supply chain disruptions marked the first few weeks of the lockdown, the specialty chemicals industry was one of the first to return to normalcy. Within the first two weeks of the lockdown, several players with links to essential components (such as medically essential chemicals) were able to restart operations, although partially. However, the industry continued to face issues such as unavailability of labor at plants and for product processing and loading, limited transportation facilities, and stock pileups at ports. On the demand side, certain end-use markets were completely insulated such as medicines, hygiene, and personal care goods. On the other hand, automotive, construction, and textiles witnessed a drop in demand due to the global recession and fragile economic activities.

In FY 2021, India exported specialty chemicals worth INR 2,198.50 Bn, registering an annual CAGR of ~19.01% in 2016. China’s specialty chemicals export business was seven times that of Indian exports, amounting to INR 17,053 Bn in FY 2021. The wide difference is expected to create export opportunities in the event of a global sourcing switch.
