Country Highlights

Germany & its Chemical Industry

Germany’s chemical industry is one of the largest and most important industrial sectors in the country. With a turnover of €227.1 billion in 2021, chemicals and pharmaceuticals make up the third-largest industry in Germany behind automotive and machinery and equipment. This massive industry contributes approximately 3.5% to Germany’s overall GDP, demonstrating its strategic significance to the national economy.

The roots of Germany’s chemical prowess stretch back over a century. Major companies like Bayer, BASF, and Hoechst emerged in the late 19th century and helped propel Germany to becoming a global leader in chemical production.

By the 1990s, the industry had become a major job creator and export powerhouse. Today, the country has a highly skilled workforce and remains at the cutting edge of chemical research and development.

Within the broad chemical sector, some sub-industries stand out. Pharmaceuticals represent a major growth area, as German pharmaceutical companies like Bayer and Merck lead the world in drug innovation and production. Plastics are also a major German export, with the country supplying plastic goods globally. Other specialty chemicals like agrochemicals and electronic chemicals showcase Germany’s technical expertise.

Looking ahead, there are opportunities to further strengthen the industry. Germany has the potential to increase production of higher value-added chemicals by focusing on specialty and performance materials. The country is also well-positioned to capitalize on growing end-markets like electric vehicles, renewable energy, and medical technology. By investing in R&D and advanced manufacturing, The country can ensure its chemical industry remains globally competitive.

RFC has expertise in strategic planning, process optimization, and new market expansion. We can work with chemical companies to develop strategies for entering new high-growth sectors, improving production efficiency, or expanding to international markets.
