Description : Speciality chemicals (also called specialties or effect chemicals) are particular chemical products which provide wide variety of effects on which many other industry sectors rely.

Specialty chemicals are produced by a complex, interlinked industry. In the strictest sense, specialty chemicals are chemical products that are sold on the basis of their performance or function, rather than for their composition. They can be single-chemical entities or formulations (combinations of several chemicals) whose composition sharply influences the performance and processing of the customers product. Products and services in the specialty chemicals industry require intensive knowledge and ongoing innovation.

Commodity chemicals are sold strictly on the basis of their chemical composition. They are single-chemical entities. The commodity chemical product of one supplier is generally readily interchangeable with that of any other.

During the last 10 years, the specialty chemicals industry has experienced slower growth and lower overall profitability within a more competitive environment than in the preceding period. Since the Great Recession, global consumption of specialty chemicals has grown in fits and starts. After plunging 10% in value from 2008 to 2009, consumption grew 16% in 2010, only to fall again in 2011. After a very anemic growth of less than 1% in 2012, consumption rebounded 7% in 2013 and grew another 4% in 2014. Despite an unsteady macroeconomic environment, global manufacturing and construction industries grew in 2014 and specialty chemical demand followed in consequence.
