Chemical tanker shipping refers to the constructed ships for carrying liquid chemicals in bulk. These chemical tankers are required to fulfill safety aspects because many chemicals are flammable and toxic. Additionally, these tankers are required mandatory compliance with the International Bulk Chemical Code (IBC Code). Furthermore, there are various types of chemical tankers available in the shipping industry including inland chemical tankers with a deadweight tonnage (DWT) range from 1,000 to 4,999, coastal chemical tankers with DWT range from 5,000 to 9,999 and deep-sea chemical tankers with DWT range from 10,000 to 50,000. These chemical tankers are used for carrying organic chemicals, inorganic chemical, vegetable oils & fats, and others including additives, lube oils, and molasses. Inland chemical tankers are typically in the form of self-propelled barges. These are commonly used in Europe in the river system to carry the load from large tankers and coastal terminals for transporting them to inland industrial facilities. Coastal chemical tankers are small tankers used to transport chemicals where larger tankers are restricted. In addition, deep-sea tankers are basically ocean-going vessels consists of stainless steel or coated tanks.
The increasing demand for chemicals across the global and lower crude oil prices is primarily driving the market growth. Increasing demand for oilseeds or vegetable oils & fats because of rising awareness among the consumers about healthy and hygienic food is accelerating the demand. Along with these, increasing investment for the production of chemicals in the Asia Pacific region is likely to provide potential opportunities over the forecast period.
