Scope for Chemical products and their production industries

Saints and Intellectuals around the world in ancient times produced chemical products by experimenting various combinations of raw materials available from living and non-living things. They invented medicines a chemical compounds that know to man could save lives from deadly diseases. By the invention of gunpowder we can see how the fate of the world changed; fertilizers, acids and many more have played their role in changing the life style of humans. For every chemical product that we have now has a history of it own, new products are still introduced into the market to fulfill the human needs.

In the modern world, the manufacturing and production industries branched out to generate useful consumable and commercial chemical substances. Designing the innovative and Eco-friendly processes for a chemical product production in large scale is the primary task to establish a chemical industry. New courses came into college and university like process engineering, process systems engineering, chemical engineer, and chemical product designing’s for these purposes.

Basic chemical production industries:

  • Personal care
  • Agrochemical
  • Coatings
  • Solvents
  • Industrial and institutional
  • Biochemical
  • Drugs
  • Food (nutraceuticals)
  • Household
  • Pharmaceuticals.

The demand for chemical products has increased enormously that do not cause pollution and be environmental friendly. By the help of computer-aided applications in product and process designing, the new products manufacturing from cheap raw materials improved to solve the environmental and social issues. Stability and thermodynamic modelling helped to develop specialty chemicals and microsturctured materials for new drugs. Most chemical processes industries have setup their own R&D departments to continuously do research on their chemical products and manufacturing process.

The physical state of most of all chemical products exists in the form of powders, aerosols, liquid–liquid emulsions, sprays, suspensions, liquid dispersions, and solid pastes.
