In a world of emerging technologies, chemicals companies need to diversify beyond their current scope to remain competitive and secure their position in the African and global chemicals markets. A strategy incorporating further diversification and growth by acquisition into alternative chemicals markets is needed by chemicals companies, as well as extending the geographic footprint to offset slow economic growth in their traditional markets.

Reasons to attend:

  • Learn about chemicals companies in South Africa
  • Gain insights into local competitive trends
  • Learn about chemicals companies' diversification strategies

As this briefing will identify diversification strategies and discuss the future of chemicals in Africa, it will be of interest both to South African chemical companies, and to global chemicals companies with an interest in the region.
