The Africa chemical industry is small in comparison to the rest of the world.

The regions of Africa with significant chemicals industries are South Africa, West Africa and North Africa, with South Africa being by far the largest.

South Africa still has a significant chemicals industry by global standards with SASOL ranking 45th by size. South Africa is a world leader in synthetic coal-based, and natural gas-based liquid fuels and petrochemicals. The competitive advantage of the basic chemicals industry derives from the abundance of raw materials due to the country’s strong minerals base.

South Africa produces around 600 types of chemical. The chemicals industry is a vital sector of the South African economy. It accounts for about 25% of the nation’s manufacturing sales and is the most developed of its kind in Africa.

Weighing is critical in the chemical industry both in terms of accounting for the weight of inputs bought and finished products sold but also more critically in managing and controlling the precise mixture of ingredients in production recipes.
