DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul 6, 2018--The "Specialty Pulp and Paper Chemical Market by Type - Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2017-2023" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The global specialty pulp and paper chemicals market was valued at 15,568 million in 2016, and is projected to reach 22,829 million by 2023, registering a CAGR of 5.6% from 2017 to 2023.

Specialty pulp and paper chemicals are the raw materials used to produce specialty paper. These are the integral part of manufacturing process of paper and reduces the consumption of water and energy. It also improves the optical and functional properties of paper such as color, texture, brightness, strength, printing ability, and others during the paper manufacturing process. Some of the specialty paper chemicals include sodium hydrosulfite, hydrogen peroxide, and chlorine, which are used as bleaching agents; sodium silicate, enzymes and various surfactants used in the de-inking process; and alkyl ketene dimer and alkenyl succinic anhydride used for sizing.

The recycling of paper has gained considerable importance in the global paper industry over the past decade. The increased use of recycled paper results in an increased requirement for specialty pulp and paper chemicals. In addition, the demand for functional chemicals in various applications such as packaging, printing, and decoration is on an increase, thus driving the specialty pulp and paper chemicals market.

The functional chemicals segment of specialty chemicals comprises of different types of dry-strength additives, wet-strength resins, fluorescent whitening, and sizing agents. The wide applications of specialty paper in different sectors demand different characteristics of papers related to its color, brightness, sizing, texture, and others. The use of functional chemicals has increased to meet the needs of the paper manufacturing industry, which contributes to the growth of the specialty pulp and paper chemicals market.
