Growth Drivers

  • The Use of Electronic chemicals and Materials in The Semiconductor Industry – The semiconductor industry generated USD ~ 415 Billion in sales in 2019 and climbed up to ~ USD 439.4 Billion in 2020, a 6.8% increase, partly as a result of increased demand brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Technology is The Fastest Growing Industry - In 2020, over 40% of the top 50 biggest global corporations belonged to the technology sector.
  • Growing Adoption of Nanotechnology In the next 3 years, the Nanotechnology industry is set to generate over 300 Billion USD in revenue.
  • Recovering Semiconductor Industry Post Global Shortage – The productivity of semiconductor manufacturers has grown, which helped in driving up the predicted revenue growth to over ~8.5% in 2021. from roughly 5% in 2019, the last year before the pandemic. To minimize supply chain interruptions, governments are also increasing their investments in semiconductor technology.
  • Global Advent and Adoption of 5G Over 1/3rd of all semiconductors produced are used the communications industry. By 2025, One-third of the world's population will likely be covered by 5G networks by 2025. The growth of 5G technology will further propel the Electronic Chemicals and Materials market.


  • High cost of operations, investment and manufacture
  • Strict regulations regarding the use of hazardous chemicals
  • Disruptions in supply chains that can cause imbalances

The electronic chemicals and materials market is segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by application into semiconductors, ICs, display panels, and metallurgy. Out of these segments, the semiconductors segment is expected to keep holding the largest market share by 2033. This is based on the fact that electronic chemicals and materials are most extensively used to improve the performance of semiconductors by etching, cleaning, and maintenance. Semiconductors are projected to be one of the most demanded products in the coming future, as an anticipated ~ USD 6.7 trillion are projected to be invested on digital transformation by 2023.

Major Macro-Economic Indicators Impacting the Market Growth


The chemical industry is a major component of the economy. According to the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis, in 2020, for the U.S., the value added by chemical products as a percentage of GDP was around 1.9%. Additionally, according to the World Bank, Chemical industry in the U.S. accounted for 16.43% to manufacturing value-added in 2018. With the growing demand from end-users, the market for chemical products is expected to grow in future. According to UNEP (United Nations Environment Program), the sales of chemicals are projected to almost double from 2017 to 2030. In the current scenario, Asia Pacific is the largest chemical producing and consuming region. China has the world’s largest chemical industry, that accounted for annual sales of approximately more than USD 1.5 trillion, or about more than one-third of global sales, in recent years. Additionally, a vast consumer base and favorable government policies have boosted investment in China’s chemical industry. Easy availability of low-cost raw material & labor as well as government subsidies and relaxed environmental norms have served as a production base for key vendors globally. On the other hand, according to the FICCI (Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce & Industry), the chemical industry in India was valued at 163 billion in 2019 and it contributed 3.4% to the global chemical industry. It ranks 6th in global chemical production. This statistic shows the lucrative opportunity for the investment in businesses in Asia Pacific countries in the upcoming years.
