International Chemical Trade 2011 Data

Author: ChemViews

International trade in chemicals has increased with the increase in world chemical production. The European Union (EU) is the largest importer and exporter of chemicals, including pharmaceuticals. However, the EU chemicals industry is less competitive overall compared to 2003. In 2011, the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) market and Japan both registered a decline in their contributions to total trade compared to five years previous. Conversely, China and the rest of Asia increased their contributions.
