The Hungarian chemicals industry can be broadly classified under two categories - basic chemicals and fine and specialty chemicals. Basic chemicals include petrochemicals and fertilizers. Plastics, rubber, pesticides, detergents and cosmetics form the other category of fine and specialty chemicals.
The Hungarian chemical industry is a part of the larger European Union (EU) chemical industry. The industry's total turnover accounts for about 0.5% of European chemical industry. The Hungarian chemical industry has grown rapidly in the recent years.
Due to limited local demand and diminished trade barriers, Hungarian chemical companies export a significant portion of their production. This has exposed these companies to global marketplace challenges. In order to be competitive, these chemical companies have undertaken improvement initiatives, while reducing costs and headcount.
