Chemicals Sector Overview & Opportunities

Description

This webinar within DIT’s Export Academy series will give you an insight as to how the Department for International Trade can help your business build its international capability to sell to the global chemical supply chain. You will hear about the importance of understanding overseas’ markets, various routes to market, and how to overcome barriers such as regulation.

The Chemical industry plays a vital role in the global economy. In 2020 the industry’s total worldwide revenue amounted to some US$3.82trillion. The world’s chemical industry converts raw materials, such as fossil fuels, metals, minerals, and biomass into the thousands of products essential to modern life. All manufacturing sectors are in some way dependant on the products of the chemical sector. Chemical products include bulk chemicals, used as building blocks for more complex molecules, and fine and speciality chemicals, which are used in consumer products such as personal care products, paints, pharmaceuticals, and many others. The United Kingdom has a well-developed speciality chemicals industry with companies producing many types of ingredients and formulated products for downstream industry. Companies export these products to every country in the world.
