The global specialty pulp and paper chemicals market was valued at 15.57 billion in 2016 and is expected to reach 22.82 billion by 2023, with a compound annual growth rate of 5.6% from 2017 to 2023.
Specialty pulp and paper chemicals are the raw materials used to produce specialty paper. These are the integral part of the manufacturing process of paper and reduce the consumption of water and energy. It also improves the optical and functional properties of paper such as color, texture, brightness, strength, printing ability, and others during the paper manufacturing process. Some of the specialty paper chemicals include sodium hydrosulfite, hydrogen peroxide, and chlorine, which are used as bleaching agents; sodium silicate, enzymes, and various surfactants used in the de-inking process; and alkyl ketene dimer and alkenyl succinic anhydride used for sizing.
Guangdi Chemical Co., Ltd. is the largest sodium hydrosulfite(sodium dithionite) manufacturer in China, located in the Maoming National Hi-Tech Industrial Development Zone in Guangdong. Guangdi’s business covers the production, storage, transportation, sales, and service of chemical products. The ECO Passport and ZDHC Certificate assure the top product quality of Guangdi products.
Sodium Hydrosulfite(SHS) is also known as Hydrosulphite Concentrate or Sodium Dithionite or Sodium Hydrosulphite (Na2S2O4). It is a white or grayish-white powder, free from visible foreign particles with a pungent odor. It is classifiable under the custom codes 28311010 and 28321020.

In the past decade, paper recycling has become very important in the global paper industry. The increase in the use of recycled paper has led to an increase in demand for specialty pulps and papermaking chemicals. In addition, the increasing demand for functional chemicals in various applications such as packaging, printing, and decoration has boosted the specialty pulp and paper chemicals market.
The functional chemicals part of specialty chemicals includes different types of dry strength additives, wet strength resins, optical brighteners, and sizing agents. The wide application of specialty paper in different fields requires paper to have different characteristics in terms of color, brightness, sizing, and texture. The use of functional chemicals has increased to meet the needs of the paper industry, which has contributed to the growth of the specialty pulp and paper chemicals market.
