New Third-Party Chemical Distribution Market Research Highlights Recovery Path for Businesses from COVID-19 based on Commodity Chemicals and Specialty Chemicals Types | Technavio

LONDON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#GlobalThirdPartyChemicalDistributionMarket–The new third-party chemical distribution market research from Technavio indicates Negative and Inferior growth for the market in the short term as the business impact of COVID-19 spreads.

"One of the primary growth drivers for this market is the growing focus on chemical distribution,” says a senior analyst for the Industrials sector at Technavio. The rising demand for third-party chemical distribution from economies in MEA and APAC is one of the critical factors driving the market growth. The developing chemical industry in these regions has induced channel partners to distribute chemicals to a broader target audience. Furthermore, increasing investments in the chemical industry are also leading to the demand for third-party distribution. One of the major companies, Saudi Aramco, has already partnered with Sabic to build the oil-to-chemical complex with an investment of USD 20 billion. Such partnerships in the chemical industry will have a significant influence on the growth of the third-party chemical distribution market, which will grow during the forecast period. As the markets recover, Technavio expects the third-party chemical distribution market size to grow by USD 96.72 billion during the period 2020-2024.
