India’s population suffers from a significant death rate, partly because of vector-borne diseases transmitted by mosquitoes. Infectious diseases like malaria, filariasis, kala-azar, Japanese encephalitis, chikungunya, and dengue are present in the country. According to WHO’s World Malaria report, India accounts for 4% of the global malaria burden in 2017. To prevent the proliferation of mosquito-borne diseases and to improve the quality of public health, mosquito control is essential in the country.Continue reading
The market of synthetic latex polymers assumes a unique set of characteristics in every geography, from performance of the economy, purchasing power of the population, and industrialization to demand patterns, competition from alternate technologies, and performance of the polymers in specific end uses.
North America and China both represent the largest markets of synthetic latex polymers by volume, each accounting for an approximate 25% share of global consumption. Meanwhile, India, which has a much smaller share of around 5% of global consumption, is the fastest-growing market for synthetic latex polymers in the world. It is these three key geographical markets of North America, China, and India that Kline studies in depth this year in its continuous Synthetic Latex Polymers Global Series: Business Analysis and Opportunities program.Continue reading
Each of the three largest surfactant-consuming applications, household and industrial and institutional (HI&I) cleaning, personal care, and industrial, has a unique set of characteristics and consumption patterns. HI&I is the largest consumer of surfactants, but highly price sensitive. As a result, formulators look to use lower-priced surfactants more provided they meet the requirements. In the performance-driven personal care market, formulators are more concerned about the surfactants’ qualities than their price. An industrial application, in turn, is more complex and varies widely across various end-use segments.Continue reading
The expansion of affordable healthcare and robust growth in generics due to increasing patent expirations of branded drugs are boosting consumption of specialty oral solid-dosage-form (OSDF) excipients globally. According to Kline’s recently published Specialty Excipients for OSDFs Database, the markets in China, CIS, Europe, India, Japan, and the United States are estimated at USD 3.5 billion and expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of close to 6% during 2016-2021.

In this blog, we look deeper into the most important market issues and trends affecting the industry and how suppliers can use them in their favor.Continue reading
Changing industry regulations and continuous developments across end-use applications are the key factors affecting the USD 4.5 billion market for specialty biocides in China, Europe, India, and the United States, according to Kline’s recently published chapters of its Specialty Biocides: Regional Market Analysis study.
Due to their nature and the variety of applications they are used in, biocides are often a key component in chemical formulations. The fact that some chemistries are under scrutiny in many countries makes this sizeable and rather mature market an unexpectedly dynamic industry, where regional markets are characterized by sets of completely different trends.Continue reading
The ever- growing demand for cosmetics and personal care products also drives sales growth of ingredients used in these products.

Based on our research findings, we identified several important trends from the end user’s experience, which in turn affect the personal care ingredients market going into 2016.
