Chemicals and Materials are used to make a variety of products touching every aspect of our lives. Some of these products are directly used by the consumers e.g. cosmetics, detergents etc. while the remaining ones become raw material for other industries like agriculture, construction, healthcare and services.
Chemical Business can be classified broadly as Basic Chemicals, Specialty Chemicals, Fine Chemicals and Consumer Chemicals.
Ø Basic chemicals (commodity chemicals) are characterised by capital intensive, high volume and low margin products. These chemicals usually become the raw materials for other industries and have a comparatively lower growth rate.
Ø Specialty chemicals are low volume and high margin chemicals with some specific effect which influences the performance of the end product e.g. adhesives, additives, antioxidants, biocides, corrosion inhibitors, cutting fluids, dyes, lubricants, pigments etc.
Ø Fine chemicals are complex, single, pure chemical substances which find its major usage in pharmaceutical and agrochemical industries. These chemicals are produced in low volumes and have high margins.
Ø Consumer chemicals are directly sold to the end user like soaps, detergents and other toiletries.
In almost every economic sector, chemicals and materials are the integral component for either commercial or industrial procedures. Therefore it has a major contribution to the manufacturing industry. At present the Asia- Pacific region lures and rules this industry. The emerging economies of China, India, Japan, Brazil and Korea have been pacing up the sales and productions of the chemical industry. Global market players in this dynamic industry include the likes of BASF, Bayer, DuPont and Eastman Chemical Company. The companies are making their worldwide presence by setting manufacturing plants in the emerging economies. To maintain their market share in the industry these companies have to find cost effective procedures while complying with the environmental regulations.
The major challenges for the industry in the coming years will be to search for alternate feedstock (as oil and natural gas are getting scarcer and expensive) ,complying with the environmental policies, health and safety of the working force and economizing on energy usage.
