Chemical Reports

CMCS/Ozone developed a database which was a complete analysis of the production, trade and demand in the full chemical pipeline of all the Southern African Development Community (SADC) countries in conjunction with the CSIR for the year 2000. Ozone has kept this database up to date with product specific market surveys. A list of chemicals already researched is provided alphabetically at the bottom of this page. New chemicals are continually added to this list as more research is done. 

The chemical sub-sectors as developed with the Department of Trade & Industry are as follows: Liquid Fuels & Associated Products, Commodity Organic & Inorganic Chemicals, Primary Polymers (Plastics) & Rubbers, Fine Chemicals (e.g. actives for agricultural chemicals & pharmaceuticals), Speciality Formulated Chemicals (e.g. construction chemicals, flavours & fragrances, metal treatment chemicals, pulp and paper chemicals, adhesives & sealants, paints & coatings, inks, agricultural chemicals, etc.), Pure Functional Chemicals (catalysts, emulsions, food acids, pigments, mining chemicals, plasticisers, resins, surfactants, etc.), Bulk Formulated Chemicals (fertilisers & explosives), Pharmaceuticals (as end dosage form), Consumer Formulated Chemicals (household cleaning products, cosmetics & toiletries), Plastic & Rubber Converted Products, and Man-made Filament Yarns & Fibres (from plastic polymers).

The following formats of Chemical Reports are available.

1. South African Database Product Profile: Most recent available database information for a specific chemical product, including the names of local producers, overall local production (where publically available), trade data (i.e. imports and exports by major countries) and consumption by major applications. Available within ± 2 working days from the request.

2. South African Updated Product Profile: Up-to-date information (i.e. the previous calendar year) for a specific chemical product, including the names of local producers, overall local production (where publically available), trade (i.e. imports and exports by major countries), consumption by major applications, and estimated sectoral growth. Available within ± 2 calendar weeks from the request, depending on the product profile.

3. African Country Chemical Sector Trade Analysis: Import and export volumes and values by chemical sub-sector for a specific African country. Each sub-sector also shows the major products imported and exported. Available 1-2 weeks from the request, depending on the country and year of data requested.

4. Regional Product Demand Analysis: Import and export statistics for a specific chemical product in volume and value, of any chosen African countries. Available within ± 1 working day from the request.

5. Detailed Market Studies: Detailed market research for a specific chemical product, including the names of local producers, overall local production (where publically available), trade (i.e. imports and exports by major countries), consumption by major application and end user (i.e. strictly confidential within a specific project) for the current or previous calendar year. Additional information (as per customer specification) may include identified suppliers, technical specifications, current delivered prices, delivery requirements, trends and developments, potential replacement threats, purchasing behaviour (i.e. spot or contract purchasing), marketing requirements (i.e. quality, pricing, availability, etc.), approval requirements (i.e. laboratory samples, timing, pilot plant samples, etc.).
