Market Dynamics:

  • Growth Drivers: The global chemical distribution market has been growing over the past few years, due to factors such as the growth of chemical industry, rising demand from other end user industries, rising demand for value-added services, digitalization, etc. Chemical distribution services serve as an important link for the chemical producers to reach to the smaller customers that are situated in less developed regions, incentivizing chemical manufacturing firms to demand these services to reduce supply chain complexities and tap into new opportunities. Therefore, growth in chemical industry will lead to the rise in demand for chemical distribution services by chemical industry, boosting the growth of global chemical distribution market.
  • Challenges: However, the market growth would be negatively impacted by various challenges such as growing environmental and security concerns, rising complexities in chemical logistics, etc. Since chemical production is associated with climate change, groundwater and soil contamination, degradation of natural resources, waste management issues, noise pollution, air pollution and depletion of non-renewable resources like fossil fuels, oil, natural gas and coal that are used as raw material in chemical manufacturing, Therefore, rising environmental safety concerns among people have contributed to lower demand for various chemical and hence, negative effect on the demand for chemical distribution services, impeding the growth of chemical distribution market.
