By type, the pharmaceutical ingredients accounted for the largest specialty chemicals market share in 2019, and is anticipated to continue this trend during the forecast period. This is attributed to the numerous applications across the pharmaceutical industry such as manufacturing drugs for cardiovascular diseases, skin disorders, and Hughes syndrome. Pharmaceutical ingredients are basically active ingredients that are present in medicine products. They are manufactured from basic chemical compounds in large reactors in different manufacturing plants. After the base or chemical compound is processed it turns into an intermediate, which finally forms the pharmaceutical ingredient. Based on the production of specific pharmaceutical ingredient the number of intermediates varies from 1 to 10.

Moreover, agrochemical is expected to account for around one-eight market share. Increase in population base along with rise in demand for food is further demanding agrochemicals for the better crop production and protection, which further drives the growth of the specialty chemicals market during the forecast period. Furthermore, growing awareness among farmers toward the use of agrochemicals in farming fuels the growth of the market. With increase in urbanization and industrialization there is decrease in agriculture land, which leads to growth in demand for agrochemicals to increase the crop yield per acre of land; thereby, driving the growth of the specialty chemicals market during the forecast period
