    Global Thiochemical Market – Summary


    The global thiochemical market size is touted to scale to a valuation of USD 3,423.3 million by 2024, in an in-depth analysis claims Market Research Future (MRFR). Owing to its widespread use in oil & gas industry, thiochemicals can witness a moderate CAGR of 3.75% during the forecast period (2018-2024).


    Thiochemicals such as mercaptans, sulfides, polysulfides, and thioglycolics play integral roles as gas odorizer, catalyst activator in the hydrodesulfurization process, and as an anti-coking agent to crack the crude oil. Governments are now getting more and more involved in controlling the pollution level as it poses many threats, aversion of which is not possible without stringent measures. Euro 5, BS IV, China V, and other government regulations have been introduced to counter the rising pollution level and improve the fuel quality by imposing emission standards on sulfur content, lead content, cetane number, and fatty acid methyl esters (FAME) content. This could be used as a leverage to give the thiochemical market further thrust.


    Methionine, a thiochemical product, is often added in animal nutrition products as a precursor of amino acid for dietary supplements. Currently, owing to a rise in disposable income, cities across the world are experiencing a shift in the nutritional intake which as an upshot is producing more poultry meat than ever. The thiochemical market is certain to witness a surge in demand by being used as supplements in animal husbandry. Methionine also has a considerable impact on bio-based products which could prove beneficial in the future.


    However, the fluctuating crude oil price is not reflecting well on the balance sheet of most of the industries as it is triggering dwindling price point. In addition, the long exposure of the thiochemicals could prove toxic owing to its carcinogenic nature. The market may not enjoy a smoother ride owing to these bumps that can deter the growth during the review period.

    The global thiochemical market can be segmented by product type and end-user industry.


    Based on product type, the market comprises mercaptans, sulfides & polysulfides, sulfonyls, thioglycolics, sulfates & sulfites, and others. Mercaptans accounted for the maximum share in 2017 by generating 43.2% of the total market revenue. Its utilization across verticals such as oil & gas, animal nutrition, agrochemicals, chemicals, pharmaceutical, and cosmetics & personal care can help it gain a moderate CAGR of 3.42% during the forecast period.


    On the basis of end-user industry, the market includes oil & gas, animal nutrition, chemicals, pharmaceutical, agrochemicals, electrical & electronics, cosmetics & personal care, and others. As of now, oil & gas sub-segment is leading the market, and the foreseeable future can witness the same scenario. The multifarious use of the chemical in the oil & gas industry can influence the market growth by helping it attain a CAGR of 4.21% during the review period.


    Regional Analysis:


    The global thiochemicals market covers namely Asia Pacific (APAC), North America, Europe, Latin America (LATAM), and the Middle East & Africa (MEA).


    The APAC is currently leading the market owing to a few factors such as large population base with its rising per-capita meat consumption and a burgeoning animal nutrition industry, increasing petrochemical projects, and expanding agrochemical industry along with agricultural productivity, are fuelling the market growth. The region can showcase a CAGR of 4.12% in the coming years.


    North America holds the second position and likely to showcase a considerable rise in demand and register a CAGR of 3.62% during the assessment period.

    Market Competition:


    Methyl bromide, under the Montreal Protocol, has been declared a Class I ozone-depleting substance and has been banned subsequently by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). As a thiochemical, dimethyl disulfide is a perfect alternative. To meet the rising food demand, the cultivation of high-value crops has been commercialized, which in turn can further drive the need for thiochemicals.


    Owing to the presence of several international and regional companies, the market has grown competitive. Major players are banking on tried and tested strategies such as merger and acquisition. Arkema’s collaboration with CJ CheilJedang to produce biomethionine from renewable raw materials can be considered exemplary. Furthermore, this can be a possible solution for the questions raised against thiochemicals for being toxic and carcinogenic.

    Global Thiochemicals Market: Competitive Landscape


    Some of the key players operating in the global thiochemicals market are Arkema SA (France), TORAY INDUSTRIES, INC. (Japan), Chevron Phillips Chemical Company (U.S.), BASF SE (Germany), Merck KGaA (Germany), BRUNO BOCK Chemische Fabrik GmbH & Co. KG (Germany), Zhongke Fine Chemical Co., Ltd. (China), HEBEI YANUO Bioscience Co., Ltd. (China), Taizhou Sunny Chemical Co., Ltd (China), Oxon Italia S.p.A. (Italy), Varsal (U.S.), Affon Chemical Co., Ltd. (China), SHINYA CHEM (China), Uniwin Chemical Co., Ltd. (China), and Thermo Fisher Scientific (U.S.).


    Arkema SA (France), and Chevron Phillips Chemical Company (U.S.)collectively hold the largest share of the global thiochemicals market. There is intense competition in the market among these leading players on account of the growing product demand across various end-use industries. The market is marked by the presence of tier-1 and tier-2 companies. The major market players are adopting various business strategies including capacity expansion, investment, new product launches, and joint ventures to attain a substantial share of the market and earn sizeable revenue during the forecast period.


    Arkema SA is a global manufacturer of specialty chemicals and advanced materials. In June 2018, Arkema announced the doubling of its thiochemicals production at its Beaumont site in Texas, U.S., in collaboration with Novus International, Inc. This is expected to enhance the company’s position in the animal nutrition market and make Arkema a leader in the high-value-added sulfur derivatives market. The new plant is expected to be operational by the summer of 2021. In November 2017, Arkema announced the doubling of the production capacity of its methyl mercaptan unit in Kerteh, Malaysia, by 2020.


    Chevron Phillips Chemical Company LLP (CPChem) produces various organic chemical products. In March 2014, CPChem opened a new manufacturing facility in Tessenderlo, Belgium, to meet the growing demand for hydrogen sulfide (H2S) and additional sulfur-based products such as mercaptans, sulfides, polysulfides, and Scentinel gas odorants. The plant has helped increase production capacity by around 40%. In May 2017, CPChem expanded production capacity of ethyl mercaptan (EM) and tetrahydrothiophene (THT) at the plant by 65% to ensure a long-term and dependable supply of these products.
