Event Details

Specialty Chemicals - Partnership Opportunities with the Forest Industry


The Forest Products Association of Canada (FPAC) invites you to join representatives of the forest industry, specialty chemical companies, consumer product companies, investors and market analysts in a meeting to discuss opportunities for forest companies in markets for higher value chemicals.


A recent market study by MarketLine reported that the global specialty chemicals market grew by 4.4% in 2011 to reach a value of $767.5 billion and is forecast to have a value of $980 billion in 2016.


A growing trend among industrial and consumer products companies is to modify their chemical supply chains to address growing consumer demand for safe, effective products that are environment-friendly while maintaining or improving quality and security of supply.

Forest companies in FPAC are actively looking for partnerships with companies in other sectors to create and capture new value in sustainably produced energy, chemicals and advanced materials. They have formed the Biopathways Partnership Network to build relationships and new business ventures with companies that have the technology and ability to capture market share with products that are verifiably sustainable.

FPAC member companies are implementing world-leading, sustainable forest management practices in more than 76 million hectares of forest across Canada. In the Canadian Boreal Forest Agreement, these companies have formed a unique collaboration with 9 leading environmental organizations to work together in the marketplace to create competitive advantage for products derived from a better protected, more sustainably managed Boreal Forest. These developments provide a platform for development of new business ventures based on secure supply of sustainable raw materials.

The meeting will start with a presentation by Rob Henske, Partner, Roland Berger Strategy Consultants, in which he will give his perspective on the markets, trends, value chains and key players in the specialty chemical business. This will be followed up by a presentation from Jackson Dunkel, Managing Director, MacQuarie Capital Partners, about how the investment community views the sector and the potential to integrate new renewable feedstocks. The rest of the day will include a forestry panel, perspectives from an intermediate supplier and final producers, followed by a breakout session to allow for greater discussion of issues mentioned during the day. Stay tuned for more information on the agenda – will be released in early January.

Please join us on Tuesday, February 5, 2013 in Montreal to discuss the exciting opportunities and help capitalize on the sustainable advantage that the Canadian forest industry offers to potential supply chain partners.
