The market for green chemistry is set to outpace the overall global chemical market during the current decade.

It appears that the chemical industry is finally moving towards supporting greener products. One of the challenges to making green coatings and end products has always been the raw materials. Equally and higher performing green products, such as paints and coatings, has always been there, but several of the biggest challenges historically is cost and supply of supporting raw materials to make these products viable in the marketplace. 


The total alternative U.S. chemical end-use product market should reach $149.9 billion and $884.1 billion in 2016 and 2026, respectively, reflecting a 10-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 19.4%.

This is of great benefit to companies such as ICD, where for 30 years we have focused on innovating and creating greener coatings that outperform our competition. It is this change in the chemical industry that allows us to integrate and expand deeper into the product creating process like; manufacturing true greener products such as coatings (OPACI-COAT-300®, 500®, and CeramiGlass™), silicone polymers, silicone emulsions, catalysts, and other basic components of greener end coating systems.

It's a truly exciting time.
