This study showed that 44% of the total exports of the chemical sector in Spain in 2022 were from the Catalan chemical industry.
The chemical industry was the largest exporter in Catalonia in both 2020 and 2021, representing 27% of the total exports of the territory in 2021, well above sectors such as agri-food and automotive.
