Major Chemical Producing Nations

Chemicals are an integral part of modern daily life. They are constituents of materials; parts of preparations and products; and are embedded in complex physical systems. Chemicals are used in a wide variety of products and play an important role in the world economy. While chemicals are a significant contributor to national economies, sound chemical management across the lifecycle—from extraction to disposal—is essential not only to avoid significant risks to human health and the environment along with their associated economic costs, but also to maximize the benefits of their contribution to human well-being.
 
The chemical industry creates an immense variety of products which impinge on virtually every aspect of our lives.

While many of the products from the industry, such as detergents, soaps and perfumes, are purchased directly by the consumer, 70% of chemicals manufactured are used to make products by other industries including other branches of the chemical industry itself. The industry uses a wide range of raw materials, from air and minerals to oil.

There have been breath-taking changes in the chemical industry over the last 10 years or so, not only in Europe and in the US but particularly in China, India, the rest of Asia and Brazil. The chemical industry is one of the largest manufacturing industries in all developed and emerging countries.
 
With increasing competition worldwide, innovation remains crucial in finding new ways for the industry to satisfy its increasingly sophisticated, demanding and environmentally-conscious consumers.
What does the chemical industry produce?
 
The products of the chemical industry can be divided into three categories:
  • Basic chemicals
  • Speciality chemicals
  • Consumer chemicals
Several other categorisations are used but this one is simple and helpful in the context of this web site. Outputs range widely, with basic chemicals produced in huge quantities (millions of tonnes) and some speciality chemicals produced in modest kilogramme quantities but with very high value. As explained in the unit on Chemical Reactors, the choice of reactor is often goverened by the amount of chemical that is to be produced.
