The future of the chemical industry

SVP supports international companies as they enter the German, Austrian and Swiss markets. We have tremendous sector-specific expertise when it comes to market or location analyses, as well as identifying clients or business partners in the DACH region. Germany has been one of the most important countries in the chemical sector since the beginning of the industrial revolution and chemicals have been one of the country’s most successful industries, serving as a cornerstone of German innovation. It is responsible for developing and producing new materials and components for a vast array of different sectors, making it an indispensable part of Germany’s industrial landscape. Behind it all is the exceptionally powerful innovative strength of companies offering high-quality products, a strong industrial network and a high degree of scientific expertise.

Raw material security, green chemistry (sustainability), globalisation, energy efficiency and new materials for 3D printing, e-mobility and regenerative energy sources are currently pivotal issues within the industry.

More than ever before, chemical companies have to set themselves apart from the competition in a globalised world to successfully compensate for adverse factors like energy prices or raw material scarcity. Europe is seeing a shift from manufacturers of basic chemicals to increasingly specialised chemical companies in order mitigate dependence on individual markets or raw materials. SVP is supporting this transition with individual and tailor-made solutions and advisory services.
