The paper chemicals market is estimated to be USD 36.4 billion in 2018 and is projected to reach USD 40.2 billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 2.0% between 2018 and 2023. The growth in the production of packaging paper backed by the demand for paper-based packaging is expected to drive the paper chemicals market.

Paper Chemicals Market

By type, pulp chemicals is expected to be the largest segment of the paper chemicals market during the forecast period.

The growth of the segment is mainly attributed to the demand for bleaching chemicals such as chlorine oxide, hydrogen peroxide, sodium bisulfite, and sodium chlorate. Oxygen and ozone are now being used as bleaching agents, which is expected to drive the segment during the forecast period. The capacity expansions by pulp producers in South America and APAC is expected to drive the demand for pulp chemicals.

By form, specialty chemicals is expected to be the largest segment of the paper chemicals market during the forecast period.

The growth of the segment is mainly driven by the increasing demand for specialty paper in the packaging industry for packaging of food beverage products. The increased customer demand for durability and aesthetics of paper products has impelled paper producers to develop specialty paper. This, in turn, is expected to drive the specialty chemicals segment.

The growing awareness about sustainable packaging has fueled the demand for paper-based packaging. This is expected to drive the demand for paper chemicals during the forecast period.

Paper Chemicals Market

APAC is expected to be the largest market during the forecast period.

The growth of the market in the region is mainly driven by the shift of production facilities from North America and Europe in the region.  China, India, and Japan are the major contributors to the pulp and paper production in the region. The growth of the packaging industry in the region owing to the increasing per capita expenditure on food and beverages and growing industrialization is expected to generate a demand for paper-based packaging in the region. This, in turn, is expected to drive the paper chemicals market in the region.

Companies such as Kemira Oyj (Finland), BASF (Germany), Solenis (US), Akzonobel N.V. (Netherlands), Ecolab (US), Ashland Inc. (US), Harima Chemicals Group (Japan), Buckman Laboratories International Inc. (US), Archroma (Switzerland), and Chemisphere Paper Technologies (South Africa) are the leading players in the paper chemicals market, globally.  Diversified product portfolio, high depth in application reach, and technical assistance to customers are the factors that have helped the companies strengthen their position in the paper chemicals market. These companies have also been adopting various organic growth strategies such as new product launches and expansions to improve their position in the paper chemicals market.

The paper chemicals market is consolidated. Many paper chemical producers have either divested their businesses or merged with other paper chemical producers to sustain in the market.

Recent Developments

  • In May 2018, Solenis and BASF signed an agreement to combine BASF’s paper and water chemicals business with Solenis to jointly create a customer-focused global specialty chemicals company. The combined company is expected to operate under the Solenis brand and will provide expanded offerings and cost-effective solutions for customers in two specialty chemical businesses which are paper technologies and industrial water technologies.
  • In September 2017, the company signed an agreement to acquire the paper chemicals business from Georgia-Pacific. This business supplies differentiated products and applications that provide strength, softness, and durability to paper. It will enhance Ecolab’s position in the growing tissue and towel as well as the packaging and board segments of the paper industry.
  • In July 2014, Kemira acquired AkzoNobel’s paper chemicals business. This acquisition is estimated to strengthen Kemira’s market position, especially in the APAC region.
