Specialty pulp and paper chemicals are chemicals used as raw materials in the manufacture of specialty paper. The specialty paper market is a niche market and accounts for 4% of the overall paper production. However, the volume of chemicals used for specialty papers is relatively high as compared to regular commodity papers. The growing demand for specialty papers in the consumer sector and industrial processes for filtration, labeling and graphic arts is expected to drive the market over the next few years. In addition, the rising global population is expected to drive industrial and consumer sector which is consequently expected to boost the demand for specialty papers. However, increasing environmental concerns regarding effect of certain chemicals, which are used as specialty chemicals, are expected to hamper the demand. Development of new chemicals and technologies such as enzymes and growing demand for recycled paper is expected to open new opportunities for the growth of the market within the near future.

Functional chemicals were the largest product segment of the market accounting for over 50% in 2012. Functional chemicals is expected to be the fastest growing segment due to the high demand for dyed, pigmented and coated paper for various industrial, consumer and art purposes. In addition, the growing demand for writing paper on account of increased literacy in developing countries such as Indonesia, India and China is expected to contribute to the demand for functional chemicals. Bleaching chemicals was the second largest product segment of the market. However, process chemicals are expected to be the second fastest growing segment due to the development of environment friendly chemicals.

North America and Europe were the highest consumers of specialty pulp and paper chemicals, each accounting for approximately 40% of the market in 2012. The dominance of North America and Europe was primarily due to the large demand from the specialty paper industry owing to various applications of the specialty papers in essential economy and non-essential economy. In addition, Canada and Southern U.S. have a significant number of wood pulp manufacturing sites, which resulted in the presence of a huge specialty chemicals market in this region. However, Asia Pacific is expected to show the highest growth within the forecast period. Industrial development and growth of the retail market in this region is expected to drive the demand for specialty chemicals in this region. Furthermore, development of pulp and paper industries in this region is expected to boost the demand for specialty pulp and paper chemicals.
