fuel the market growth. As per recent statistics, the global automotive industry is expected garner approximately USD 8 trillion by 2030. Furthermore, it was calculated that around 67 million units of vehicles were sold internationally in 2021 and around 56 million units were produced in 2020. 

  • Expansion in Chemical Industry - The total revenue of global chemical industry was calculated to be USD 4 trillion in 2019.
  • Soaring Expenditure in Advanced Chemicals and Materials Industry – In 2019, the global research and development expenditure spending on advanced materials and chemicals industry was USD 42 billion in 2019.
  • Growth in GDP level - As per the World Bank, the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in 2021 was accounted to be USD 96.1 trillion, up from USD 75.18 trillion in 2015.
  • Rise in Disposable Personal Income – In 2021, the disposable personal income of Americans was approximately USD 16 trillion and the per capita income was calculated to be USD 47, 760.


  • Highly Toxic Nature of the Chemical
  • Increased Concern of Health Issues Due to the Chemical
  • Stringent Rules by the Government

The silver cyanide market is segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by application into electronic components, silver plating, metal surface treatment, chemicals & salts, and research. Out of these, silver plating segment is expected to garner the highest revenue by 2031, owing to its increased usage of silver plating across diverse end-use industries such as electronics, manufacturing, laboratory and chemicals. The growth of the global electronics industry is calculated to be 6% in 2020. The increasingly used for silver plating of musical instruments, power generators, utensils, jewelry and several other products. The revenue generated by global musical instruments segment amounts to be USD 39 billion in 2022.

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.
