Global Nematicides: Market Analysis and Opportunities

Changing Nematicides Market Remains Strong but Raises Positioning Questions to Suppliers

Changing Nematicides Market Remains Strong but Raises Positioning Questions to Suppliers

Global Nematicides: Market Analysis and OpportunitiesPARSIPPANY, NJ – November 18, 2019 – The global nematicides market is currently driven by several important factors, including an increase in commodity demand with declining acreage, growth of high-value crops which justifies high-cost nematicides, changing regulations, and consolidation in the market.  The total forecast for the countries and crops included is a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.4% through 2028, finds Kline’s Global Nematicides: Market Analysis and Opportunities. China is estimated to surpass the United States as the leading country for nematicide use with almost USD 500 million by 2028. To learn more about the nematicides market, REGISTER for a webinar, taking place on November 20, 2019.

The 12 countries covered in this report were selected with client input and target the largest nematicide markets of interest. The United States, China, and Japan are the largest nematicide markets surveyed. These three countries account for more than 62% of total nematicide sales.

Vegetable crops account for 33.1% of total nematicide sales in 2018. Traditionally, nematicides have treated tuber crops (potatoes, carrots, parsnips).

The splits by product type are determined by crop value, cultural practice, and the extent to which fumigants are permitted. Fumigants and soil-applied chemicals dominate the market but are expensive. Chemicals are particularly strong in Brazil, China, and Japan. Fumigants are practically nonexistent in Brazil but dominant in the United States and Canada. Seed treatments and bionematicides are relatively new treatments; they are currently strong in mature markets such as the United States and Canada. However, strong growth in seed treatment nematicides and solid potential for biopesticides is forecast in South American region as well.

Regulatory bodies have limited the use of low-cost products such carbofuran, cadusafos, endosulfan, phorate, and broad-spectrum methyl bromide, 1,3‐dichloropropene. The phase-out and use restrictions of certain nematicides already exist across Europe, the United States, China, and India. Regulatory threats are currently impacting Argentina and Brazil. On the other hand, they create new opportunities for actives with a favorable beneficial insect profile and strong target pest control. Moreover, with a desire to replace toxic nematicides, several biological nematicides have been developed. Biological nematicides are currently estimated at 8% of sales.

“There are several strategic questions that suppliers to the nematicides market should be asking,” says Dennis Fugate, Industry Manager at Kline. “Some key questions are related to product positioning. With the mergers of Dow and DuPont, Corteva now has a significant stake in the nematicide market. Will it be the focus of some discovery efforts? If Bayer reverses its decision not to offer NemaStrike™ Technology in 2020 for corn, cotton, or soybeans at some point in the future will Bayer’s new nematicide, Tioxazafen, be relaunched?”

New product introductions will have a major impact on the growth of nematicides across all countries surveyed. There is a demand for a safer, less toxic product that is also effective at controlling nematodes. Such a product could take over a significant share of the nematicide market in the future.

Global Nematicides: Market Analysis and Opportunities provides crop protection suppliers with the latest information on the size, structure, and outlook for the nematode treatment market in the major country/crop markets of the world.  The study encompasses 47 different crops in 12 countries. It also includes details on new biological nematicides by country and crop.

Why Shell Remains a Market Leader in 2019 and How Lubricant Suppliers Can Capitalize on the Shifting Mobility Ecosystem

Why Shell Remains a Market Leader in 2019 and How Lubricant Suppliers Can Capitalize on the Shifting Mobility Ecosystem

Global-lubricant-industryPARSIPPANY, NJ – November 7, 2019 – Kline’s just-published Global Lubricants Market Analysis forecasts volume growth in the global lubricants market to remain flat for the foreseeable future. While that is a known paradigm, what is unclear is how suppliers should act to seize hidden niche opportunities. To get information on current opportunities, ATTEND Kline’s complimentary webinar, taking place on November 21, 2019.

In 2018, the global demand for finished lubricants reached 40.5 million tonnes, with automotive oil products accounting for more than 50%.  The two largest markets, the United States and China, accounting for 39%, will still have the biggest impact on product trends. However, a number of industry trends—including trade tensions, economic pressures, increased vehicle electrification, and the growing use of synthetics—are continuing to suppress volumetric growth.

The leaders in the lubricant industry keep their fingers on the market pulse, tapping into a range of opportunities. Shell, a leader in the industry for over a decade now, remains the leading global supplier of automotive and industrial lubricants.

“There are many reasons why Shell remains the market leader in 2019,” notes George Morvey, Industry Manager at Kline. “Some examples include a complete automotive and industrial product portfolio of conventional and synthetic lubricants, the #1 overall market share in the United States and #3 in China, the leading position in the quick-lube segment in the United States, global distribution coverage through direct and indirect channels, and an HDMO product offering that enjoys strong global brand loyalty from sectors such as owner-operators.”

“Shell’s growth strategy for lubricants is working. Our balanced portfolio of market leading products and growing digital services are enabling us to build business across all market segments and demonstrate the resiliency of our business in an increasingly dynamic global lubricants market,” said Huibert Vigeveno, Executive Vice President, Shell Global Commercial. “The Kline report shows that we are widening our lead over our main competitors and I am particularly pleased with the growing demand for our premium lubricants and our growth in the industrials segment.  We have been focusing on what our customers need and adapting our offer accordingly, which is resulting in material earnings growth and contributing resilient free cash flow to the Shell Group.”

BP acquires the United Kingdom’s largest electric charging network, Chargemaster, and rebrands it BP Chargemaster, building up the position of a supplier of all fuel and vehicle types. This one-stop shop is now a destination for fuel (liquid or electric)—and will be in the future—but also for sales of branded PCMO/HDMO, which is an important sales outlet in many countries.

TOTAL launches a line of fluids for EVs under the Quartz and Rubia brands toward the end of 2018, strengthening its positions in electric mobility. Other suppliers quickly respond to this new automotive ecosystem. Shell follows with its global launch of branded fluids for EVs, and Petronas enters the space, announcing its IONA branded product line in 2019. Most recently, Valvoline launches its Valvoline EV Performance Fluids line.

ExxonMobil bets on the Asian two-wheeler market and acquires PT Federal Karayatama with the objective of entering the MCO space in Indonesia. In June 2019, Indonesia’s Ministry of Industry implements the Indonesian National Standard (SNI) on lubricants; it aims to promote the use of quality products and reduce the use of fake/counterfeit productsm while encouraging foreign suppliers to set up domestic lubricant blend plants to increase domestic production.

The Indonesian SNI is an example of one of the key trends impacting developing markets. The introduction of government initiatives that aim to limit imports in a drive toward self-sufficiency can be observed in other country markets.  In Russia, an import substitution policy has been implemented with the end goal of limiting the import of finished lubricants, especially synthetics, while “encouraging” consumers to support domestic Russian suppliers. Similar issues are evident in India and China, where the “Make in India” and “Made in China 2025” initiatives aim to help local- and state-owned manufacturers provide their products to consumers. These initiatives offer stiff competition to international players and create competitive disadvantages and barriers to entry for organizations without a local presence.

Coty Professional Beauty Brands-2

How Would Coty’s Professional Beauty Brands Look on You?

How Would Coty’s Professional Beauty Brands Look on You?

Coty’s Professional Beauty BrandsPARSIPPANY, NJ, October 31, 2019 – Wella and its sister brands are on the block again after Coty’s recent announcement regarding its plans to sell its professional beauty division. Ranking #2 in the global professional hair care market, according to Kline’s Salon Hair Care Global Series, makes Coty an attractive business to potential buyers. Drawing on 60 years of knowledge in the beauty industry, Kline—a leading market research and consulting firm—analyzes some of its staple brands in the professional hair care segment as well as the potential new owners of them.

Since acquiring Wella, which is the #1 professional color brand globally, Coty has been fiercely expanding its presence in some strategic salon hair care markets such as China, Japan, Brazil, and even L’Oréal-dominated France. Wella has gained 1.3% share points ahead of L’Oréal Professionnel, its closest competitor in the hair coloring segment, since it was acquired from Procter & Gamble in 2015, finds Kline’s Salon Hair Care Global Series. The brand has developed a two-tier strategy focusing on selling its hair coloring products in salons while also expanding in the retail area. Moreover, Coty continues to be at the forefront of innovation with launches such as Koleston Perfect with ME+ technology and Wella Color DJ device, as well as other comprehensive offerings in customized care through its newly restructured line of System Professional.

In the professional nail care space, OPI continues to be the global leader with a strong presence across the globe. The brand holds a 24% market share in the United States, according to Kline’s Professional Nail Care: Global Market Brief, and continues to stay on top of market trends, establishing itself in the fast-developing dipping powders segment.

L’Oréal, the distant market leader in the global professional hair care industry, is not a likely suitor for the hair brands. The company likely would not receive regulatory clearance, as this would give it control of more than one-third of the global market and over 40% of the European market. The beauty titan also seems more focused on buying indies, not legacy brands. However, OPI or GHD may be interesting for L’Oréal, as professional nail care and hair appliances are two of the few spaces in the beauty industry where L’Oréal does not hold a leadership position.

Henkel is a likely candidate, as it has already been on a heavy M&A path the last few years following a rapid string of acquisitions, albeit of much smaller U.S. brands. These acquisitions helped Henkel solidify the #2 spot in North America. It has ranked a distant #3 globally for years.

“If Henkel were to acquire Coty’s professional hair care brands, it would put the company within close reach of #1—only two share points away from L’Oréal,” says Carrie Mellage, Vice President of Kline’s Consumer Products Practice. However, challenges exist, as Henkel’s biggest brand in the portfolio is German color-focused brand Schwarzkopf Professional, and this could result in a potential conflict of interest with Wella. Looking at individual brands in the portfolio, one great fit could be Nioxin, as it would fill Henkel’s gap in scalp care offerings and bolster its growing strength in the United States.

Kao is another potential buyer. It would put Japanese Kao in a new sphere within the salon hair care market, placing it solidly at #2. However, its Goldwell brand has a long competitive history with fellow German brand Wella. This may prove to be a challenge when it comes to integration, assuming the company can get past any regulatory clearance, which may also be an issue.

Unilever is another possible contender. It has been showing signs of reestablishing itself in the professional arena with TIGI’s salon-only Copyright Care line. Wella could definitely find a home in Unilever’s more retail-focused portfolio. “With TIGI and Living Proof, Unilever has its strength in hair styling products and hair care with only limited presence in hair color. Acquiring Wella would not only balance its portfolio but would also give the marketer an entry ticket to many salons,” comments Agnieszka Saintemarie, Industry Manager of Kline’s Consumer Products Practice.

Adds Mellage: “Henkel, Kao, and Unilever—each with annual revenues well north of $10 billion—should all be able to absorb the Coty brands without too much difficulty, unlike the situation Coty found itself in when the brands it acquired overshadowed its existing business.”

Within the broader beauty industry, we may see interest from foreign firms like Amorepacific (South Korea) or Natura (Brazil), which are both actively growing their businesses abroad, or from long-established multinationals like Colgate-Palmolive, which has already been dipping its toe in the professional beauty arena with its acquisition of professional skin care brands in 2017. Certainly, financial and private-equity firms should also be interested in considering this business.

Kline has a rich history of tracking the professional beauty market through its various research programs. The performance of leading professional hair care marketers such as Coty, Henkel, and Kao, as well as other up-and-coming ones, is closely monitored in studies such as the Salon Hair Care Global Series and Kline PRO. Major brands in the professional nail care area are analyzed in Kline’s Professional Nail Care: Global Market Brief, highlighting the latest dynamics in this hard-to-track segment.

Biologics Research

Growth of Biologics and Biosimilars Will Drive Above-Average Demand for a Range of Ingredients through 2023

Growth of Biologics and Biosimilars Will Drive Above-Average Demand for a Range of Ingredients through 2023

biologics researchPARSIPPANY, NJ – September 30, 2019 – A surging number of biologic APIs and their growing penetration into multiple therapies create an attractive market segment for pharmaceutical ingredient suppliers but not one without challenges, analyzes Kline’s recently published Biologics: Market Opportunities for Chemicals Suppliers. To learn about key findings from the study, REGISTER for a complimentary webinar, taking place on October 17, 2019.

Currently, more than 350 biologics are commercially presented in the biopharmaceuticals market. Some established biologics, such as Humira and Avastin, maintained their growth of the last decade in 2018, with sales growing by 8.2% and 9.5%, respectively. New drugs such as Opdivo, which was first introduced in 2017, witnessed particularly robust growth.

Since bilogics are quite large in comparison to small APIs and made up of proteins, they require extra care to maintain their size, shape, form, and stability. These factors correlate to the intended effect and efficiency of the biologic drug. Because of this, the development of biologics is difficult compared to small APIs. Aside from all the aforementioned challenges, the share of biologics in the development pipeline has been steadily increasing in the last decade. In 2018, biologics constitute more than 40% of the pharmaceutical industry pipeline.

Among the competition to biologics are the generic versions of novel biologic drugs called biosimilars.

“While biologics remained fairly insulated from the threat of generic competition in the past, it has changed with the passage of the Affordable Care Act,” says Shilpi Mehrotra, manager of Kline’s project. “Due to patent expirations, there will be an increase in the number of biosimilars in the biopharmaceutical market.  However, biopharmaceutical companies continue to invest in novel biologics research, especially for oncology and immunology, which ensures that the pharmaceutical pipeline is filled with biologics.”

Biologics drug development is an impending opportunity for ingredient suppliers, especially, because specialty ingredients are required in not only the formulation of the biologic drugs but also in their production, starting from the upstream cell culture in bioreactors, followed by downstream processing, pre-formulation of the drug, and, finally, the fill-finish. While excipients are mainly used in the later stages of formulation and fill-finish, there is a wide range of bioprocessing ingredients essential to the upstream and downstream stages.

The demand for bioprocessing ingredients is currently dominated by the cell culture ingredients and supplements category. The category is expected to grow at an above-market average compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of around 10% between 2018 and 2023. Moreover, the consumption of fill-finish and pre-formulation excipients is expected to increase at a high rate with the growth of biologics production. The consumption of biologic excipients is forecast to grow at an average annual rate of 8% to 9% in the next five years.

The market of biologics is presently dominated by the United States and Europe. The development of novel drugs is advanced in these regions, whereas the rest of the world is focusing on the development of biosimilars. For comparison, by the end of 2018, more than 20 biosimilars have entered the European market, whereas India already has over 50 approved biosimilars.

The top 10 leaders in the biologics market, having extensive product pipelines and in-house manufacturing capacities, comprise approximately 65% of the biologics market in terms of revenue.

With a growing demand for biologics, many pharmaceutical companies are now focusing on gaining in-house expertise. However, the trend for outsourcing and utilizing the services offered by contract manufacturing organizations (CMOs) or CDMOs has been increasing in the last few years.

Biologics: Market Opportunities for Chemicals Suppliers assists chemical suppliers in understanding the entire biologics value chain and identifying business opportunities.

Global Lubricant Basestocks: Market Analysis and Opportunities

Challenges Galore for Basestock Suppliers Due to Shifting Market Environment

Challenges Galore for Basestock Suppliers Due to Shifting Market Environment

Global Lubricant Basestocks: Market Analysis and Opportunities

PARSIPPANY, NJ, September 23, 2019 – The global lubricant basestocks market faces a bleak outlook. In the past, any new capacity created was accommodated by relatively faster demand growth and the corresponding shutdown of inefficient plants, but the situation has changed, affected by a reduction in finished lubricant demand growth.

The adverse situation for global finished lubricant demand is the result of several factors, including the weak global economic outlook, much faster penetration of high-quality lubricants, and growing electric vehicles penetration. “Moreover, no major basestock plant shut down its operations last year, except Imperial Oil’s Group I plant in Strathcona, Canada, while new capacity continued to be added. As a result, the market surplus increased, and margins took a hit for all types of basestocks,” says Anuj Kumar, project manager for Kline’s recently completed report, Global Lubricant Basestocks: Market Analysis and Opportunities. Kumar will present the latest insights and market challenges at Kline’s upcoming complimentary WEBINAR.

The overall basestock demand growth is forecast at 0.4% CAGR during the period 2018-28 over the base demand for 36.5 million tonnes in 2018, shows the report. This is much slower growth compared to the past, reflecting the weakening growth in the finished lubricants market. On the other hand, new basestock capacity of around 5.0 to 5.5 million tonnes is expected to be set up over the same period. In an oversupplied market plagued with thin margins, much-desired normalcy (bridging supply-demand mismatch) can be achieved either by strong demand growth or by rapid capacity shutdowns. Clearly, the former is not happening, and only the latter can bring some normalcy.

On the demand side, Group II/II+ basestocks continue to make rapid inroads to lubricant formulations across the world. While these basestocks have remained a mainstay of the majority of lubricant formulations in North America, they have become the most widely consumed basestocks in the Asia-Pacific region as well. Europe, where demand for Group II/II+ accounted for a small share in the total region’s demand, is displaying a growing propensity toward using Group II/II+ across lubricant formulations. This change, until last year, was primarily led by North American Group II/II+ marketers but gets a boost in 2019, as significant Group II/II+ capacity has been established in the region. Other regions also promise a rapid transition toward Group II/II+ basestocks.

A rapid growth for Group II/II+ basestocks would result in a faster decline for Group I basestocks demand, positioning Group I basestocks to a niche product. Some of the developing markets in the regions such as Asia-Pacific, South America, and Africa and the Middle East have also started to register a declining market for Group I basestocks.

Demand for Group III/III+ will be driven by rapid growth in demand for synthetic lubricants and newer, lighter viscosity grades such as SAE 0W-20 and 0W-16. Other synthetic basestocks like PAOs, synthetic esters, and polyalkylene glycol will grow at faster rates, driven by the need for synthetic lubricants in their specific applications.

Kline’s Global Lubricant Basestocks: Market Analysis and Opportunities is published annually. The study offers an in-depth understanding of the current status the basestocks industry in terms of basestock supply, basestock application space and demand, lubricant formulation trends, basestock pricing mechanism, inter-region trade, inter-material competition, and manufacturing costs.

Mosquito Control: Global Market Analysis and Opportunities

Dengue Outbreak in Southeast Asia Set to Increase Mosquito Control Insecticide Sales

Dengue Outbreak in Southeast Asia Set to Increase Mosquito Control Insecticide Sales

Mosquito Control: U.S. Market Analysis and OpportunitiesMosquito Control: U.S. Market Analysis and Opportunities

PARSIPPANY, NJ – September 25, 2019 – The 2015 outbreak of the Zika virus in South America, Central America, and the United States galvanized countries to increase vector control measures to quickly reduce mosquito populations. In 2019, another disease outbreak is anticipated, as many Southeast Asian countries have reported a higher incidence of Dengue fever. India, Thailand, Malaysia, and Indonesia are all increasing protection measures. Insecticide sales for mosquito control are evaluated to be USD 200 million from seven major countries, including these four in Southeast Asia, as profiled in Kline’s just published Mosquito Control: Global Market Analysis and Opportunities study. To learn about key marketing findings, REGISTER for our complimentary webinar, taking place on October 25, 2019.

Mosquito control programs are typically budgeted as part of a country’s national healthcare plan and implemented by state or city municipal departments. Control programs usually include treatments for both adult mosquitoes and mosquito larvae. Adulticide applications can be done through different techniques including aerial applications, with aircraft spraying the largest tracts of land. More common are land-based spray applications, which are administered by pest control officers and applied directly to the surfaces of buildings. Foggers, vaporizers, and other machines are also used in application. Long-lasting insecticidal nets (LLINs) are also commonly used in some countries as covering for beds.  Adulticide products account for about 75% of total market sales.

Larvacide brands account for the remaining 25% of sales. Larvacide applications are predominantly conducted as water treatments, especially where water is stagnant. While most larvacide applications are through chemicals, a new biological alternative is being introduced in the market through the use of bacteria such as Bti (Bacillus thuringiensis israelensis), which consumes the larvae. Bacterial-based products have already become a key ingredient in the U.S. mosquito control market, accounting for 15% of its total sales.

It is imperative that all products used in control must be approved for use to ensure no contamination and/or further health problems. Common ingredients include naled, pyrethrum, and malathion. Using multiple-ingredient brands is also important to prevent mosquito species from developing resistance to a specific chemical.

Steady growth is predicted for the overall market, with a forecast CAGR of 3% over the next five years. Demand has already grown sharply in India, with CAGR already at 5.6% since 2012; it will continue to grow due to the dangers of the Dengue outbreak. Thailand is forecasting a 4% growth in insecticide sales. As weather patterns change, leading to hotter and wetter climates, mosquito prevalence and subsequent disease outbreaks are likely to continue to increase.

Mosquito Control: Global Market Analysis and Opportunities provides an accurate and independent appraisal of the market size and segmentation of products used, brand sales, and market trends in the professional mosquito control markets. The study focuses primarily on the sales of insecticides, but also covers rodent control products where applicable.

The database, which is a part of subscription, helps market participants to identify and understand the consumption trends and make a comparative assessment of the mosquito control pesticides by supplier, brand, active ingredient, acre treatment, and volumes. It also helps them to benchmark their company’s presence in each country and product category against their competitors and will aid them in shaping growth strategies.

Global Lubricant Additives: Market Analysis and Opportunities

Lubricant Additives Chemistries that are Ready for Market Changes are Set for High Growth

Lubricant Additives Chemistries that are Ready for Market Changes are Set for High Growth

Global Lubricant Additives: Market Analysis and Opportunities

PARSIPPANY, NJ, September 17, 2019 - The lubricant additives market, with an estimated growth of 0.5% in 2019, has traditionally been slow to embrace major changes and shifts to new chemistry. However, changes in the lubricants industry, along with the introduction of new specifications, may find a market more receptive to new technology in lubricant formulations, finds the recently published Global Lubricant Additives: Market Analysis and Opportunities report by Kline. To learn about key findings and market trends, REGISTER for the webinar taking place on September 25, 2019.

Automotive lubricants, especially HDMO and PCMO, are the largest end-use application areas for additives. The consumption of lubricant additives for blending automotive lubricants represents nearly 70% of the total lubricant additive volume.

“The push toward greater fuel economy and longer lubricant life may be pushing traditional chemistries to their performance limit, where adding more simply isn’t good enough or may be chemically limited to protect exhaust after-treatment devices,” says David Tsui, project manager for the study.

OEMs are being driven toward new technology and metallurgy for their drivetrains, along with continuing to lower the engine oil viscosity requirements.

“This could drive a shift toward new additive technology such as ashless antiwear components, novel friction modifiers, or low-viscosity dispersants to meet the needs of the vehicles of tomorrow,” adds Tsui. “On top of this, the government push toward electric vehicles (EVs) will also change the lubricant additives market.”

The formulation changes will prompt differential growth within the different additives function classes.  Currently, dispersants, which are largely consumed in automotive and industrial engine oils, are the largest function class for additives, closely followed by viscosity index improvers (VII). The third-largest function class is detergents.

Factors such as enhanced engine cleanliness requirements and soot control requirements will provide an impetus to the increased consumption of dispersants in engine oils. VII consumption growth drivers include a shift to multigrade oils, longer lubricant life, and increasing usage of Group II and III basestocks. Other function classes such as antioxidants, friction modifiers, PPDs, and corrosion inhibitors are also forecast to grow at a fast pace. The rest will grow at rates closer to the market average.

Overall lubricant additive consumption is projected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 0.5% by 2023. While additive growth rates have traditionally outpaced finished lubricant volumes, this forecast period is affected by the lowering of sulfur in marine fuels and the general limiting of ash in lubricants, causing detergent consumption to decline at an annual rate of 2.1%.

Additive consumption in South America and Africa and the Middle East region will exhibit the strongest growth between 2018 and 2023. The Asia-Pacific region is projected to show the strongest volume growth. Europe will remain relatively flat, while North America is projected to decline. Growth in Asia-Pacific will be driven by HDMO and PCMO due to an increase in automotive production and ownership, as well as government infrastructure investment, which will expand the commercial fleet. However, marine engine oil additive use is projected to decline in the region.

Global Lubricant Additives: Market Analysis and Opportunities covers additives for automotive lubricants, metalworking fluids, industrial engine oils, general industrial lubricants, greases, and process oils. This market research is of particular value to lubricant additive suppliers and finished-lubricant formulators and marketers, as the industry is moving to optimize additive packages and treat rates for use with higher-performance American Petroleum Institute (API) Group II, II+, III and gas-to-liquid (GTL) basestocks. This report will assist suppliers in identifying opportunities within the global lubricant additive industry.
