CHEMICALS

Chemicals have a leading role in the transformation of our lives from rural to urban living. The enrichment of our lives relies on ever new products and devices, only possible through increasing sophistication in the products of the chemical industry.

Providing expert data and insight to the chemicals industry

We know the industry

Chemicals and chemical intermediates are the feedstocks and building blocks for the manufacture of more complex chemicals used in almost every aspect of everyday life, such as health, hygiene, medical, apparel, construction, electronics, domestic appliances, automotive and transport.

Chemicals have a huge range of uses: Water treatment for safe drinking; comfort and safety on planes, trains and automobiles; smartphones, tablets and laptops to keep us all connected; resistant textiles for visible jackets, fire-resistant clothing for firefighters, projectile proof jackets for the armed forces and law enforcement agencies.
