Outsource chemical production guided by experienced consultants of StepChange Innovations GmbH
Increasing legal requirements (REACh etc.) and high cost have in chemical manufacturing - it has become difficult to operate profitably in traditional markets. There are many good reasons for outsourcing production. You want to focus on your core competence and your market.
In emerging markets, especially in China and India, world-class chemical manufacturing has established in the last two decades. A new industry has emerged, called custom manufacturing. Chemical and pharmaceutical companies outsource the production of specific active ingredients, often non core products and processes, to third parties in China or India.
