The chemical licensing market is projected to grow from USD 10.72 Billion in 2017 to USD 13.81 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 5.2% during the forecast period. Chemical licensing is a branch of intellectual property licensing with the help of which industrial end users can own the rights to use a particular chemical technology. The chemical licensing market includes the licensing of the technology used in the manufacturing of C1 to C4 derivatives, as well as some aromatic derivatives. Technology licensing is highly growing in the downstream industry. The falling crude oil prices and increasing demand for downstream chemicals are boosting the demand for various technologies. The increasing population, expanding manufacturing sector, and rising regulatory requirements in the chemical industry are key factors projected to drive the growth of the chemical licensing market. The increasing demand for different carbon derivatives and the introduction of efficient technologies for the production of these derivatives are other factors boosting the chemical licensing market.

Based on the type of carbon derivatives manufactured by licensed technologies, the chemical licensing market is segmented into C1 derivatives, C2 derivatives, C3 derivatives, C4 derivatives, and other derivatives. The C2 derivatives segment is projected to be the largest segment in the chemical licensing market. Polyethylene and EDC-PVC manufacturing technologies are in high demand in the market; this demand is driving the growth of the C2 derivatives segment of the chemical licensing market.

Based on end-use industry, the chemical licensing market has been segmented into oil & gas, chemical, and agrochemical. Oil & gas is the largest end-use industry of the chemical licensing market. The continuous innovation in the oil & gas industry due to the increasing demand is one of the key factors driving the growth of the chemical licensing market.

Chemical Licensing Market

Asia Pacific accounted for the largest share of the chemical licensing market in 2017. This large share can be attributed to the increased demand for chemical licensing in emerging countries, such as India, China, Indonesia, and Thailand. The penetration of the chemical licensing in the oil & gas end-use industry is expected to grow at a higher CAGR in Asia-Pacific due to the high refinery capacities of China, India, South Korea, and Japan and the need for advanced sustainable and eco-friendly chemical production technologies.

The high cost of chemical manufacturing technologies is acting as a restraint to the growth of the chemical licensing market. Key companies profiled in the chemical licensing market research report include Johnson Matthey (UK), Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation (Japan), Sumitomo (Japan), ExxonMobil (US), and Shell (Netherlands).  Companies have followed strategies such as mergers & acquisitions, contracts & agreements, and new technology developments to enhance their market share and widen their distribution network. These companies are also engaged in research & development activities to develop new technologies for the production process of hydrocarbons and its derivatives, thereby strengthening their foothold in the chemical licensing market. In September 2017, Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation entered into an agreement with Air Liquide Engineering & Construction to offer licenses for MCC's BTcB technology and Air Liquide E&C’s butadiene extraction technology to customers. Customers can use these technologies to manufacture butadiene through normal butene, substituting the conventional route through naphtha cracking.
