Specialty chemicals are also called as effect chemicals or specialties. These chemicals are manufactured either by a single chemical formulation or a combination of several chemicals whose composition significantly contributes to performance of the final product. These chemicals are categorized by their properties like low volume, relatively high value chemicals etc., and recognized for their performance-enhancing properties. Specialty chemicals are used to enhance product performance across a variety of industries, such as paints, cosmetics, electronics, automotives, and construction. For example, in a construction site, the corrosion resistance of steel can be improved by construction chemicals. These chemicals are differentiated on the basis of performance and composition; and are also used to enhance the manufacturing processes. For example, textile manufacturers use textile chemicals to enhance the softness of textiles.
