Chemicals & Materials
One of the first manufacturing businesses was the chemical industry. It not only plays an important role in addressing the daily needs of the average person, but it also makes a considerable contribution to the industrial and economic development of a country.
The last few years have seen a significant structural shift in the global chemical industry, including the relocation of manufacturing to Asian nations, the emergence of new emerging growth markets, new technologies, as well as the all-encompassing effects of the global economic crisis coupled with rising raw material costs. Due to the global economic crisis, demand and margin for both the commodity/bulk and specialty chemicals industries have fallen precipitously over the past two years.
