What is the chemical industry?

The chemical industry is a branch that deals with the manufacturing of chemical products, which are necessary substances and raw products for many other markets in the worldwide economy. Therefore, the chemical industry is at the very beginning of the supply and value chain for many daily products. Seamlessly, the chemical industry is a very broad industry and includes the production of oil and gas at the beginning of the value chain as well as the production of specialties and fine chemicals which are used as additives or, by taking the pharmaceutical industry into account, the production of medicine as well.
