Brazil has the world’s sixth largest chemical sector, with estimated net revenues of USD 127.9bn in 2018. Compared to 2017, industry turnover rose by 5.4% y/y, supported by an uptick in activity of the major industrial consumers, upward price dynamics and improved consumer confidence, which all supported demand for end-use chemical products. However, the country remains highly dependent on imports of chemicals, as local production is unable to entirely meet domestic demand. Since 2000, the trade deficit in chemicals has increased more than fourfold, reaching USD 29.6bn in 2018. This was caused by historical low investments in R&D, underdeveloped domestic supply chains for raw inputs, and elevated production costs, which have led to a steady loss of competitiveness of the domestic chemical industry.
