Chemicals, Materials & Nutrition
Everything we consume as a society relies on us making responsible and sustainable use of available resources. The science of transforming these resources via process industries is “chemistry”. The chemical industry is reducing its reliance on finite resources such as oil and mined minerals. Alternative feedstocks such as crops, CO2 and recycled materials are changing the landscape of the chemical and agriculture industries.

Simultaneously, downstream industries are increasingly looking for the ability to tailor their solutions to individual consumers. The underlying science provided by chemical companies makes this customisation possible: from personalised running shoes to cosmetics, medicines and food supplements… even your personal and protective equipment at work.
Despite convergence between industries, catalysed by major trends like Digital Transformation, chemistry remains a domain for specialists. The analysts and consultants in Frost & Sullivan’s Visionary Science practice understand this specialisation, and are passionate about supporting the needs and challenges of an industry that is undergoing rapid evolution.
