The Chemistry and Parachemistry Federation of Morocco is one of the most active Moroccan federations in the country. It contributes significantly to industrial GDP.
In 2021, companies in the chemical sector represented 16.5% of the Moroccan industrial fabric. Its actors have been grouped together since 1993 within a professional association.
Its members include companies in the chemical sector, private or public, Moroccan or subsidiary of foreign groups, established in Morocco. In addition to the major operators in the sector (OCP, SNEP, SCE Chemicals, Colorado, BASF, Bayer, Air Liquide, Unilever, P&G, etc.), the Chemistry and Parachemistry Federation also has several associations (CropLife Maroc, AMIFE , COSMEM, AMIPEC, AMOD, AMGIM).
The chemical and parachemical industries sector brings together 1,600 companies that employ more than 60,000 people. In 2022, these companies made 11 billion dirhams of investment and 190 billion dirhams of turnover, including 120 billion in exports. The sector is made up of large Moroccan groups, subsidiaries of multinationals and several hundred SMEs-SMIs operating in 10 diversified chemical sectors.
The sector is strongly linked upstream and downstream to other industrial and economic activities in the country. Thanks to the latest developments and its solid fundamentals, the chemical industries sector is well on its way to strengthening its position in Morocco as well as in world trade.
The investment project of the OCP Group, in the establishment of a global hub for the production and distribution of fertilizers and green energies is the perfect illustration of this.
