Chemistry

The chemical sector ranges from manufacturers of base chemicals to pharmaceutical and food companies. It also includes materials based companies, like manufacturers of plastics, agrochemicals, ceramics, and metals or metal alloys, each with their very own characteristics. Base chemicals are more sensitive to economic cycles whereas the pharmaceutical and food sectors operate in a complex regulatory legal framework.  Working with Intellectual Property in the Chemistry sector requires knowledge of the business.
