APAC Chemicals Sector: Top Tradeshows to Attend in 2024

The worldwide chemicals industry in 2024 was valued at over a whopping 5,500 billion USD. Meanwhile, in the Asia Pacific, the output in chemicals is predicted at 5.2% compared to a 3% rate on a global scale, with countries like China, Thailand, Indonesia, and India taking the lead. This is majorly owing to rising disposable income and industrialisation across various industries, and as a result, the APAC chemicals industry is poised to undergo a nearly 6.2% compounded growth rate annually from 2024 through 2031, according to forecasts.

    Non-Equity Modes of Investment (NEMs), are forms of foreign investment that do not involve the purchase of equity in the host country’s companies, and include contractual arrangements such as licensing, franchising, management contracts, and turnkey projects.

      • Transfer technology and management know-how from the foreign investor to the host country, and facilitate employment opportunities and skill building through training programs, improving the competency of local businesses and workers

         

      • Generate revenue in the host country through licensing fees, royalties, and service fees

         

      • Provide foreign investors access to new markets and reduce investment risk by enabling greater control over the operation and sharing costs and risk with local partners

    We leverage our expertise in NEMs and the partner ecosystem across diverse industries to provide customised solutions aligning with your economic development objectives.
