Latin America is a booming emerging market for the chemical industry and many companies throughout the world are interested in taking a closer look at business opportunities for investments and business partnerships in this region.

Brazil is Latin America's driving force and one of the world'smost rapidly growing economies. Having largely transformed its economic performance over the last 15 years the country now offers political and financial stability and an economy of US$ 1 trillion, the tenth largest in the world. Brazil's chemical industry is ranked 9th in the world exceeding US$120 billion in 2008. 50% of this represents industrial chemicals, 14% pharmaceutical products, with the remaining segments (paints, coatings, cosmetics, perfumes, crops/fertilizers) totaling 36%.
