Countries with comparatively major industrial activities in Africa are South Africa, Egypt, Algeria, Nigeria, Morocco, and Kenya. There is lack of a well-developed manufacturing sector in a number of African countries. This has resulted in the presence of companies that are focused on supplying finished chemical products, rather than chemical raw materials. The African chemical industry is characterised by the presence of a number of international chemical distribution companies. Local partnership enables a quick entry into the targeted country and sectors as a lot of groundwork would have already been done. Foreign distributors would not have to face the cost of trying to establish themselves in the market.
