Chiral Chemical Market: About the Report

Increasing applications and importance of the role that chirality plays in the pharmaceuticals sector is fueling the demand for chiral chemicals across the world. The global market for chiral chemicals is expected to witness incremental growth in the coming years with the rise in investments in the chemical sectors, especially in emerging economies. This latest report with 2020-2030 forecast explores the factors that will influence chiral chemicals market growth in the years to come.

Chiral Chemical Market: Overview

While the developing countries are heavily contributing to the growth of the chiral chemical market, leading companies are also focusing on consolidating their position in developed regions, mainly in Europe. Governments’ strategies to encourage the development of biochemical is expected to create lucrative opportunities for chiral chemical manufacturers in these regions.

Among the prominent dynamics that play a significant role in fueling the chiral chemicals market growth, growing profitability of contract manufacturing in the pharmaceuticals sector is expected to create a favourable condition for players. This is expected to trigger most businesses to adopt indirect growth strategies to establish a competitive edge in the chiral chemicals market in the coming years.

Manufacturers are mainly focusing on mutually beneficial collaborations along with restoring their supply chains in the post-pandemic period. Despite the current slowdown in business and downturn of industrial activities worldwide, the chiral chemicals market is expected to grow at nearly 16% annual compound growth rate during 2020-2030.

Chiral Chemicals Market Insights by End-user

Based on the end use of chiral chemicals, the global market is mainly segmented into two categories - pharmaceuticals and agrochemicals. Bolstering growth of the pharmaceuticals industry is expected to provide an impetus to the demand for chiral chemicals in pharmaceutical applications.

Leading players in the pharmaceutical industry are creating new strategies that highlight the importance of obtaining enantiomeric purity of their products. This is expected to further boost the demand for chiral chemicals in this space. As a result, the consumption of chiral chemicals in pharmaceutical applications is expected to account for nearly three-fourth of the overall consumption across all end use segments in the market.

Chiral chemical manufacturers are also expected to capitalize on the significant rise in demand across the agrochemicals sector. The growth is mainly driven by the shifting focus on producing environmentally friendly agricultural chemicals, and ultimately, this will reflect in growing market share of this segment in the global chiral chemicals space. Thereby, leading players are expected to capitalize on the opportunities created by the rising production of eco-friendly herbicides, fungicides, pesticides, plant growth regulators, and other types of agrochemicals.

Chiral Chemical Market by Separation Technique

Three main methods are considered while segmenting the chiral chemicals market based on technology - traditional separation method, asymmetric preparation method, and biological separation method. A majority of market players are still preferring the traditional separation method as it accounts for nearly half the market share, and it is likely to remain unchanged in the coming years.

However, a mounting number of emerging players are bolstering their research & development efforts to explore the new aspects of the biological separation method in order to gain an edge in the market. This effort is mainly driven by the growing preference of developing more effective yet safer products in the pharmaceutical industry. Consequently, the adoption of biological separation methods in the chiral chemical market is expected to grow at the rate of over 13% during the forecast period.

Furthermore, vendors are also focusing on capitalizing on the fast-growing segments and end users such as pharmaceutical and agrochemical manufacturers. Growing production of numerous pharmaceutical intermediates is expected to influence major strategies of prominent players in the chiral chemicals market in the coming years.

In addition, collaborative agreements among market players for expanding their manufacturing capacities as well as distribution networks worldwide is expected to be on the rise.

Manufacturers are expected to focus on producing application-centric products and establish lucrative tie ups across major end-use industries to gain a competitive advantage in the chiral chemicals market.

An Adaptive Approach to Modern-day Research Needs

The Analyst’s Viewpoint

“Despite the lucrative growth opportunities presented by developing markets such as Asia Pacific, developed countries will hold a large share in the global chiral chemicals space. In 2020, North America and Europe accounted for the valuation of around US$ 8 billion in the global chiral chemical market, and it is likely to grow twice larger in the coming decade. With technological advantage and manufacturing profitability, players can consolidate their positions in developed markets for chiral chemicals.”

COVID-19 Impact on the Chiral Chemical Market

The coronavirus pandemic has mainly impacted the global supply chains for all industrial areas, the chiral chemicals market is no exception. Manufacturers are facing hurdles in breathing into new life with the uncertainties of socioeconomic and geopolitical situations.

However, the growth of the pharmaceutical industry has remained unwavered during this time, and this is becoming the stepping stone for chiral chemical market players to restore their operations in the coming future. Reporting to technological advancements and establishing local supply chains are expected to help manufacturers boost their operations as well as revenues in the market post this pandemic.
