The Department for International Trade Yorkshire and the Humber is delivering a series of sector events to offer insight into the opportunities in different markets and tips for overcoming barriers to re-entry.

The Chemicals sector is one of the most valuable manufacturing sectors in the UK and a key industry for exports. Chemical industry products can be found across all manufacturing sectors and the majority of consumer goods.

Exports of Chemicals from the Northern Powerhouse in 2019 were valued at £12.6bn (UK Trade Info) and, according to Chemical Industry Journal, the chemical and process sector across the Northern Powerhouse could grow by more than £20billion over the next 20 years.

Whilst companies in the Chemicals sector have largely continued operations throughout the pandemic, exports to certain markets have been affected and you may be keen to find out which markets are reopening and what opportunities are available.
