    Chemical use in Bangladesh

    Given the economic growth of Bangladesh, it is an attractive country for the chemical trade. Bangladesh’s chemical industry is diverse and includes fertilizer, textiles, tea processing, jute, paper, cement, sugar, light engineering, electronics, and petroleum.

    • Tea Processing Industry

    The Bangladesh tea farming and processing industry is one of the largest in the world. In 2019, it produced over 96 million kilograms of tea and had set a target to produce up to 140 kilograms by 2025.

    Bangladesh uses various chemical fertilizers to improve its crops yield and pesticides to protect its crops from pest attacks which often lower crop yield.

    Camachem has supplied chemical fertilizers such as Monocalcium Phosphate 22% and Dicalcium phosphate 18% (DCP18%) to Bangladesh.

    • Water treatment industry

    Bangladesh is one of the countries that has made significant progress as far as universal access to clean water is concerned. In 2013, Bangladesh was already supplying water to more than 98% of its population.

    But access to clean drinking water is still at 35%, meaning the country will have to use conventional water treatment methods to increase its clean and safe water capacity.

    Bangladesh uses large amounts of water treatment chemicals, some of which are manufactured locally but mostly imported.

    Camachem has supplied water treatment chemicals to Bangladesh, such as Calcium hypochlorite, Ferric chloride, and hydrated lime.

    • Light Engineering Industry

    It is considered one of the fastest-growing industries in the world. The sector’s major focus is to cut the cost of lighting equipment. It manufactures a wide range of parts, castings, oil and gas, pipeline fittings, and light machinery to the industrial, construction, and agricultural sectors.

    The light engineering industry employs over 8 million people in its 50 thousand enterprises and about 10 thousand small and medium enterprises.

    Camachem has supplied industrial chemicals to Bangladesh such as copper sulfate Pentahydrate, Copper Oxychloride, and Sodium Laureth Sulfate (S.L.E.S) 70%.

    Why Should Bangladesh Import Chemicals?

    • Chemicals quality - Before any customers decide on exporting chemicals, they will have to meet the quality standards, a process that most domestic manufacturers do not have to go through.
    • Long-term agreements - The secret about long-term agreements is that they provide import discounts and consistency in the product line.
    • High Cost of Production - It is cheaper to import chemicals than to buy locally. Locally manufactured goods are affected by high production cost, taxation and high labor cost.
