Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/949e00/specialty_chemical) has announced the addition of the "Specialty Chemicals Industry in Canada" report to their offering.
A Specialty Chemical is a chemical produced for a specialized use. They are produced in lower volume than bulk chemicals, of which petrochemicals, made from oil feedstocks, are the most common. However, both are produced in a chemical plant. Some examples of specialty chemicals are adhesives, additives, antioxidants, corrosion inhibitors, cutting fluids, dyes, lubricants, pigments, etc.The chemical industry world always enjoys a love-hate relationship with communities. Driven by many objectives as well as balancing social concerns with profit and R&D investments, the industry often finds itself straddled with key questions bordering on growth and ensuring sustenance in collaboration with the community.
High demand helped to lift profits for Canadian chemical producers in the last couple of years, and experts say that this trend will continue in 2008 and 2009. Feedstock availability is still a big issue for Canadian chemical producers, but they are working on ways to harness Canadas hydrocarbon riches for new petrochemical investments.
