Metal Finishing Chemicals to 2013 - Industry Market Research, Market Share, Market Size, Sales, Demand Forecast, Market Leaders, Company Profiles, Industry Trends

US metal finishing chemicals demand will reach $2.2 billion in 2013, driven in part by more demand for higher-value and safer alternative chemicals. Plating chemicals will remain dominant while the proprietary additives and other chemical segment will grow the fastest. The key transportation equipment market will record the most rapid gains.

This study analyzes the US metal finishing chemical industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1998, 2003 and 2008, and forecasts for 2013 and 2018 by product (e.g., plating chemicals, conversion coatings, cleaning solutions, proprietary additives), substrate (e.g., metals, printed circuit boards, plastics) and market.

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 29 industry players, including Dow Chemical, Atotech and Enthone.
