Market Dynamics

Driver: The developing world’s cities are growing quickly.

Construction activity has increased in developing countries due to the governments of these countries launching programmes that promise houses for everyone. A similar increase will inevitably follow the growth of the building and construction industries in the furniture business. Nitrocellulose is used in wood coatings and automotive paint, which will grow along with the industries mentioned earlier.

Restraints: Nitrocellulose’s is highly inflammable.

The extremely combustible nature of the compound, which necessitates careful handling and can lead to loss of life and property, would hinder the expansion of the nitrocellulose business.

Opportunities: Growth of the e-commerce market.

Unexpectedly, the pandemic struck several nations around the world. It stopped all economic activity by stopping labour-intensive businesses and lowering consumer demand to an all-time low. With time, the e-commerce sector’s consumer demand increased, led by online demand for clothes and leather accessories like belts and coats. With the growth of online shopping, printing inks will increasingly be used in the publishing, packaging, textile, and leather industries. With greater internet access and advanced digital technology throughout the Asia Pacific, this e-commerce boom will continue. The industry in Asia Pacific is expected to be led by Malaysia and Japan.

Challenges: stringent government regulations and rules.

Nitrocellulose is a hazardous material because of its propensity to catch fire easily. As a result of this classification, the government is more careful when managing and approving import licences. Complying with these regulations and customs import standards takes much time, eventually driving up expenses. Another problem for the market competitors is the constantly changing regulatory constraints.
