Country Reports

The chemical industries of major countries

The VCI’s economic affairs department compiles business data on major countries. This is done in the forms of country reports (ony in German language) and summary country reports (both in German and English). These reports are made available free-of-charge to the VCI membership.

Summary country reports give an overview of facts & figures from the chemical industries of some major countries – bringing their positions in an international context. Readers will also find information about their orientation by sectors and essential indicators on trading with Germany.

The summary reports about the BRIC and other major countries are usually updated once a year. Should you have requests concerning further countries, please contact Mr Christian Bünger (phone +49 69 2556-1715).

It is also worth noting that full reports on individual countries are prepared in irregular intervals. They include more detailed particulars about the chemical industry of the respective country, together with an analysis of the overall economy and important customer industries.

The available full reports in English language can be downloaded in PDF format from the download section at the top of this page.

For questions or suggestions, please feel free to contact us.
