Thoughts on chemical industry consolidation

By Maureen Aylward

Recently, Lonza announced its acquisition of Arch Chemicals, which prompted us to wonder if the chemical industry will see further consolidation. We asked our Zintro experts to comment on this.

Richard Woodward, PhD, a business executive and industrial research scientist, believes that additional consolidation will occur. “The current recession has seriously damaged a number of otherwise solid companies,” he says. “This provides opportunities for the larger, more financially secure companies such as Lonza, DSM, and the like to expand their portfolios and capabilities by acquiring companies that have fallen upon hard times. I personally believe that a number of the smaller pharma chemical companies will be acquired. In particular, companies with specific capabilities will be purchased by other companies looking to expand their range of services.”

Alan Henderson, PhD, a consultant to the chemical industry, is looking closely at recent REACH activity, the EU chemicals legislation. “There have been a staggering number of pre-registrations of chemical substances; that is some 143,000 PRs from about 65,000 registrants,” Henderson explains. “Although some thousand substances or more were made by non-producers seeking to make money out of missed pre-registrations, the sheer number of substances and suppliers suggest that there is a lot of room for consolidation within Europe.”

Henderson says there are about 15 major suppliers that meet over 95 percent of demand for chemicals. It is estimated that nearly 4,500 chemical companies operate in Europe, but what most of them do is not accurately known. “Given the increased regulatory pressure, I can see compliance becoming one factor in the consolidation process along with the normal economies of scale, synergies, and so on,” Henderson says. “Another consolidation factor could be the formation of some kind of trade exchange because chemicals made by one company in a particular EU country may be shipped to another country where it is then shipped to another country and so on. This creates staggering costs for the production and shipping of chemicals.” Henderson goes on to say that as the number of suppliers dwindle he will be watching the co-dependent distributors that may also have to consolidate.

Experts share their thoughts on the chemical industry over the next 12-18 months

By Maureen Aylward

In an effort to keep tabs on different industries, we often go to our Zintro experts to learn more about the market influences that shape an industry over the next year to 18 months. This week we look at what chemical industry experts see happening in the near future.

Stefano Colicchia is an executive with expertise in product sustainability, compliance, regulatory affairs, and quality management. He says the increasing regulatory requirements at the global level, such as the Globally Harmonized System (GHS) and legislation on both side of the Atlantic, like Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of chemical substances (REACH) in Europe and the reform of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) in the US, will influence the shape of the chemical industry. “At the global level, the industry will face the same trend because other countries are following the same path, such as China, Korea, and Turkey with REACH-like regulations,” says Coliccha.

Vijaya Shanbhag, a textile, chemical, and color consultant, says that the high performance standards that consumers expect will continue to shift the chemical industry toward eco-norms. This will be essential for the industry’s survival and growth. “The toxic residues from chemical effluents found in waste water can cause problems of the central nervous system, respiratory system, and skin, as well as headaches, dizziness, and eye irritations. The disinfectants used in water treatment are very hard to remove,” says Shanbhag. “The main objective for having eco-friendly chemicals is an increased awareness for cleaner and greener standards.”

Vivek Patel, a consultant for the chemical, pharmaceutical, and the life sciences industries, says that the manufacturing base is shifting away from North America, Europe, and Japan, while capacity is growing in the Middle East, China, and India. “The strongest growth has been in end-user sectors. The Middle East and Chinese may grow to dominate export markets,” Patel says. “The emergence of mass markets in developing countries will consolidate markets in order for it to stay competitive.”
