Base Chemical Market – Overview

The Global Base Chemical Market is expected to grow at moderate annual increment, driven by demand from end user industries like pulp & paper, textiles, soaps and detergents, fertilizers, medication, food and others. The Base Chemical manufacturers are increasingly shifting towards Asia Pacific region in line with the shift of consumer demands in textile, detergents and fertilizer sectors. As a result of this shift, China is the largest contributor and accounted for nearly half of the global production of Base Chemical. Significant refining and cracker capacity of the petrochemical has been added in China to address rapidly growing car fleet sales as well as the diverse needs of a growing Chinese middle class. Overall, the rate of Base Chemical capacity addition has been very high in Asia Pacific region while global consumption is expected to slow down, due to economic slowdown of many developing and developed countries. As a result of this, Base Chemical operating rates is expected to decline, leading to lower margins and pressure on the higher-cost producers.
