A large range of chemicals is needed in the production of goods. Companies in this section supply both inorganic and organic chemicals used in various industrial processes. A number of enterprises such as a chemical-fertilizer plant, an explosives plant, a glass-bottle factory and a battery factory are examples of chemical-based companies. Chemical companies convert raw materials such as polymers, petrochemicals and plant extracts into tens of thousands of different products ranging from solvents and pharmaceuticals to perfumes and packaging polymers. Chemical products are an integral part of everyday life.
