Chemical Accelerator Market Analysis - Global Industry Size, Share, Trends and Forecast, 2018 - 2026

Category : Chemicals and Materials | Delivery Format : PDF | Status: Forthcoming | Report ID : ARC548


An accelerator is a material which is once mixed with a catalyst and resin, initiates the chemical reaction between catalyst and the resin. It is used in the polymerization of resin or vulcanization of rubbers. They are also known as promoters when used with polyester resins and vulcanizing agents when used with rubbers. The major applications of chemical accelerators are chemical production, medical and other.

Market Dynamics

The growing demand for chemical, healthcare and oil & gas industry is expected to drive the demand for chemical accelerators market globally. In addition, rising demand for chemical accelerator in emerging economies is expected to change the dynamics of market in near future. However, stringent regulatory policies and volatile prices of raw material are the restraining factors to the growth of market.

Market Classification and Overview

The chemical accelerators market is segmented on the basis of product type, application, and geography. The major applications of chemical accelerator include chemical production, medical and others. The chemical production application segment accounted for the majority share in 2016. This demand is attributed by the demand for chemicals from various end-use industries such as water treatment, construction, agrochemicals, and many others. In medical industry, the chemical accelerators are majorly used for the production of medical gloves. There are three main classes of chemical accelerators: Thiurams, mercaptobenzothiazoles, and Dithiocarbamates (Carbamates) which are used in the manufacturing of gloves, either individually or in combination. The market is also divided on the major product types such as primary accelerators and secondary accelerators.

Regional Overview

The market for chemical accelerators is segmented into regions such as North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and Middle-East and Africa (MEA). Asia-Pacific was the key contributors to the market growth in 2016. North America was the second largest market which was followed by Europe. The market for chemical accelerators in North America is further projected to witness highest growth in coming years. In addition high growth opportunities for chemical accelerators is expected from the MEA and Latin America region.
