Inorganic Chemicals: A Global Outlook

Follow us on LinkedIn – Although the inorganic chemicals sector occupies a rather small share of the global chemicals industry, these chemicals find application in a wide range of industries including leather, pulp and paper, tires, dyestuffs, explosives, detergents, cigarettes and rubber chemicals among others. Growth in the Inorganic Chemicals industry continues to be influenced by three key factors – economy, prices, and supply and demand scenario of chemicals. Stringent pollution control norms have jump-started the usage of inorganic chemicals, and together with the unraveling of potential advantages, they continue to remain the growth drivers for the forthcoming years. While industrial growth is almost saturated in the developed regions of Europe and North America, future growth is expected to emanate from Asia-Pacific and Middle East. China and India, with their ability to manufacture these chemicals at low costs represent the main growth areas for inorganic chemicals through 2015.

Chlor-alkali is one of the biggest inorganic chemicals markets by value.

The market demonstrated a rapid recovery in 2010 fueled by increased demand from industrial consumers. Asia-Pacific is emerging as a potential avenue for chlor-alkali due to the rapidly growing markets in the region. Middle East nations reflect competitive advantage of low energy costs. Major developments in the hydrogen peroxide market, another important inorganic chemical is expected to be driven largely by the “environmental concerns” of the chemical industry.
