(MENAFN) Data released by the Ministry of Industry and Trade highlights the significant role played by Egypt's chemical industries sector, positioning it as the third-largest contributor to the country's merchandise exports during the initial quarter of 2024. This underscores the sector's growing importance within the nation's industrial landscape and its substantial impact on economic growth.

During the period from January to March 2024, Egypt's chemical exports amounted to an impressive USD1.445 billion, showcasing the sector's resilience and capacity for generating substantial export revenues.

By diversifying export destinations and tapping into emerging market opportunities, the sector aims to enhance its global competitiveness and solidify its position as a leading player in the chemical and fertilizer industry.

Key target markets for Egypt's chemical and fertilizer exports include Africa, Latin America, Europe, and several Arab countries, where there is considerable demand for these products. By strategically targeting these markets and leveraging their potential, the sector seeks to capitalize on new growth opportunities and drive further expansion in the coming years.
