3. The chemical industry

This volume has been written by Antoni Lladó and Ramon Roig under the supervision of the Technical Office of the Department of Industry, Trade and Tourism, and with the support of Idescat.

In this study, the term ‘chemical industry' is used in its broadest sense, as it also includes sectors involving the manufacture of rubber, plastic, paper pulp, paper and cardboard products. The study was based on both economic main aggregates and on sub-sectorial information: main companies, size in terms of employees, trade abroad and the presence of foreign capital in the different sectors analysed.

The concepts analysed include both large economic magnitudes and the most important companies in the sector, as well as the main horizontal aspects of interest such as the manufacturing process, technologies, subcontracting, the environment and research and development.
