In more recent times, there has been a push toward developing renewable energy sources, carbon-neutral initiatives, and an integrated life-cycle that would develop and implement digitalization strategies to enable carbon reduction and accountability. The chemicals industry has been at the forefront of innovation, developing chemicals and materials to enable breakthrough technologies and the transition to a low-carbon economy.Continue reading
The market of ingredients for household, industrial, and institutional (HI&I) cleaning applications is going through changes across all regions of the world. Innovation in dosage forms, increasing disposable income in developing countries, increasing importance of the green movement, and environmental regulations are some of the key trends driving those changes. Herewith, we are highlighting some early findings from our HI&I study, scheduled to be published in Q4 2020. In this blog, we will focus on the United States, Europe, and China. Our next blog will cover the remaining regions included in the study: Brazil, India, Southeast Asia, and the Middle East. So keep an eye on our website’s blogs section: https://klinegroup.com/category/chemicals/
Synthetic latex polymers are essential components of many consumer and industrial products. These polymers are governed by several different application markets, ranging from paints, adhesives, and construction to tires, leather, and more. The synthetic latex polymers market, as studied by Kline for close to 50 years, broadly depends on a combination of industrial output trends and consumer market trends in each country or region. More specifically, their markets in individual applications depend on end-use industry factors.
About a decade ago, Staples started carrying select cleaning products in its stores to help offset declining sales and low margins on some office supplies being sold.

Therefore, the product mix was mainly surface wipes and restroom cleaning products. Continue reading
While the spotlights are on biopharmaceuticals, the OSDF segment represents more than half of the 1100+ billion USD global pharmaceutical market. With sizeable markets in large developed countries but also large growth potential in some other parts of the world, it is the segment with the greatest opportunities for excipients suppliers.
The overall nutraceuticals market is growing at a higher rate than pharmaceuticals. However, the growth in the nutraceutical market does not entirely translate to excipients market growth for nutraceutical OSDFs. The reason: Excipients are mainly used in the nutraceutical oral solid forms of tablets and capsules and not in forms such as protein powders or other functional foods that are growing at a slightly higher rate. While the United States is the largest market, the European market will be growing more quickly, with some segments, such as functional coatings for nutraceuticals, still developing.
Here are the 10 biggest trends in excipients for the nutraceutical oral solid dosage forms market:
Note: Due to technical issues resulting from an overwhelming number of people working from home worldwide, our digital platform is having difficulties hosting events. To avoid unnecessary stress to attendees and with hopes that the platform will resolve their technical problems, we are postponing the live webinar to March 25, 2020.
Webinar Introduction: There have been a number of developments over the years in the biocide industry from regulatory clampdowns through to consolidations and divestments.
