Chemicals, Materials & Nutrition
Everything we consume as a society relies on us making responsible and sustainable use of available resources. The science of transforming these resources via process industries is “chemistry”. The chemical industry is reducing its reliance on finite resources such as oil and mined minerals. Alternative feedstocks such as crops, CO2 and recycled materials are changing the landscape of the chemical and agriculture industries.
Simultaneously, downstream industries are increasingly looking for the ability to tailor their solutions to individual consumers. The underlying science provided by chemical companies makes this customisation possible: from personalised running shoes to cosmetics, medicines and food supplements… even your personal and protective equipment at work.
Despite convergence between industries, catalysed by major trends like Digital Transformation, chemistry remains a domain for specialists. The analysts and consultants in Frost & Sullivan’s Visionary Science practice understand this specialisation, and are passionate about supporting the needs and challenges of an industry that is undergoing rapid evolution.

News, Events & Resources
Although the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) states have limited climatic capabilities to perform traditional agricultural activities, food safety and security are not an issue because the states are capital-rich and have no foreign exchange limitation on food imports. Due to their robust fiscal position resulting in high buying power, these countries have traditionally been less susceptible to price risk than other food importers.
The second World Food Safety Day (WFSD), on June 7, 2020, is focusing on prevention, detection, and management of food-borne risks. Considering the current global pandemic situation, this year’s theme draws attention to the need for food safety and security in the agriculture and F&B value chains.
The devastating environmental impacts of improper plastic waste management and the depletion of fossil fuel resources are the major driving forces of the formation of stringent regulatory guidelines for the manufacturing, use, and disposal of plastics globally.
