Special films will become the fastest-growing chemical in the world.
according to the latest research report of Sri consulting company (SRI), driven by China in the next five years (2010-2014), the global market for special chemicals will grow at an average annual rate of 3.4%. In the main application fields, the demand for special films, printed circuit boards (PCBs), chemicals used in integrated circuits and engineering thermoplastics will grow rapidly; In small-scale applications, the demand for mining chemicals, emission control catalysts and high-performance plastics will grow rapidly
ralfgubler, vice president of sric, the author of the research report, said that in the next five years, "the growth rate of market demand for specialty chemicals in all regions of the world will be different. Among them, the markets in the United States and Western Europe will grow at an average annual rate of 2.2% and 1.3% respectively, while the average annual growth rate in China is much higher. Among them, graphene and polyaniline composites are the most studied, which is expected to reach 7.3%
gebler pointed out that the fastest growing demand in the field of specialty chemicals is special films, especially those used in power, electronics and optical applications. Stimulated by the strong growth in demand for electronic applications such as displays, tapes, automatic packaging and flexible printed circuit boards, the demand for special films is growing rapidly. Compared with this kind of organic thermal insulation materials, especially in Asia, the growth rate is the fastest. He also said that compared with other application fields, the growth rate of electronic chemicals market is faster, mainly because electronic products have been seriously impacted by the global economic recession. In 2009, the sales revenue of global electronic products fell by 26.4% year-on-year, but this year will rebound strongly by 18%. Globally, the demand for electronic chemicals will grow at an average annual rate of 6% - 7% in the next five years, among which chemicals in semiconductor applications will play a leading role due to the lack of effective orders and market leaders
in the European market, gebler believes that the demand for special chemicals in the field of solar cell applications, such as polycarbonate, biaxially stretched polyethylene terephthalate and polyvinyl fluoride, will grow rapidly. Although the market of these chemicals is not large at present, they have great development potential
raywill, senior analyst of sric, said that mining chemicals will continue to grow rapidly, stimulated by the gradual growth of China's steel production and the still short supply of some major mineral products. However, construction chemicals will remain in the doldrums, because the housing market in mature markets such as the United States and Europe is still not out of trouble, and China has increased its regulation of the real estate market
