Chemical tankers are a kind of ship which is designed for the transportation of chemicals in bulk quantity. The chemical tankers may also carry industrial chemicals, petroleum products, and other types of sensitive cargo which require high standard of tank hygiene. The chemical tankers which travel on ocean may range from 5,000 tones deadweight (DWT) to 35,000 DWT in size. The chemical tankers which weigh 35,000 tons are smaller in size than the average size tankers as the chemical tankers are specialized in nature for the transport of chemicals and the nature of the cargo. These tankers size are mandated by the port terminals in which they operate. The chemical tankers require a specialized coating like zinc paint or epoxy. The chemical tankers might also be made with stainless steel.

The chemical tanker shipping market by tanker shipping cargo size can be segmented into Inland chemical tanker shipping, coastal chemical tanker shipping, and deep sea tanker shipping. The chemical tankers shipping market by chemical tanker type can be segmented into IMO I (this type of chemical tanker shipping are used in transport of most harmful chemicals), IMO II (this type of chemical tanker shipping is used for less hazardous chemicals generally transported in bulk) and IMO III (this type of chemical tanker shipping is used to transport the least hazardous chemicals). IMO II and III type of chemical tanker are used more commonly compare to IMO I type as it require a lot of arrangements for transportation and modern equipments.
The chemical tanker shipping market by product can be segmented into organic, inorganic and vegetable/animal oil and fats. Increase in demand for chemicals globally is likely to drive the demand for large tankers which are above 1000 tons DWT as this type of chemical tankers are required for carriage of goods among different regions.
