LUBRICANTS
In all types of machines, the surfaces of moving or sliding or rolling parts rub against each other. Due to this movement against surfaces in contact, friction results. Friction causes a lot of wear and tear and even generates heat. All these results in loss of efficiency and lubricants is the answer. Hence any substance put between two moving/rubbing/sliding surfaces with a view to reduce or eliminate frictional resistance is a lubricant. It is also worthy of note that the demand for lubricant is huge and especially in Industries/07033097160.

To produce, you have to create a compelling vision, but the most basic vision of all is to develop a sense of self, a sense of your own destiny, a sense of your unique mission and role in life; a sense of purpose and meaning.

Chemicals both organic and inorganic are major raw materials in many manufacturing companies; there are loads of products and manufacturing plants that depend on different type of chemicals ranging from gas supply, to oil and soda et al. The petrochemical, the pharmaceutical and the food processing industries can safely be classified under the chemical industry.

No doubt the chemical industry is a key player in the growth of the economies of most countries of the world. Here are 50 business ideas in the chemical industry that an entrepreneur who is serious about starting a business can choose from:

50 Small Scale Chemical Business ideas & Opportunities

Start a Soap Making Company

Soaps are part of the products that are manufactured from chemical products and they are used for washing and for bathing. No doubt there is a large market for soaps and the industry is still pretty much open for as many people that are ready to start their own soap making company.

So, if you are looking for a simple business to start in the chemical industry, a business that requires few weeks or months of training and one that you can start on a small scale, then you should consider going into soap making business. Although you are likely going to compete with several soap makers in your city or country, but if your soaps are well packaged, then you are likely going to get your own fair share of the available market within your target area.

CHEMICAL BUSINESS VALUE CHAIN
THE KEY PLAYERS

The Producer
The producer is the main player in the Chemical Industry. He can be a manufacturer, an innovator, a chemical scientist or the creator. He first conceives in his mind what he intends to produce; this is a mental creation and then second carrying it out representing the physical creation. He creates the product from scratch, adds value to the product already in the market or may even be alike the same product as in some case in acquiring the patent right and franchise to produce the same product.
In some cases, a producer might also be the chemical scientist who conceives the product and went ahead to produce or manufactures it. Income potential as a producer is amazing. On a small scale level, of investment of N200,000 would yield 100% return in a few months and on business stability would offer over 300% return on monthly basis. Furthermore, he wields tremendous power as he can be involved in composition and the actual running of his enterprise.

The Chemical Scientist
He is an important player in the Chemical Industry. He is involved in the creation, production and sales of the chemicals. With his formal education and training, he understands the various elements, compound and extractive techniques from raw sources. The chemical laboratory is usually his dormitory and a single discovery or innovative product can shoot him to fame and wealth. His products can impinge every aspect of our lives.
Furthermore, many companies buy some of his chemical products as intermediates in their own manufacturing processes. Often, there are clusters of processes which use the output of one as the input to another. Example, ammonia is made from natural gas and can be converted to hydrogen cyanide. Becoming a chemical scientist can be very rewarding as he earns millions of naira per annum for his researches, consultancy and sales of chemical product. He is also well respected by the public and stakeholders in the chemical industry.

The Armchair Investor
He is a very important in the chemical industry because of his experience, resources and financial wealth. Usually, he is a shareholder; an important stakeholder and contributes positively to the growth and development of the chemical enterprise. He might not have control over the actual running of the enterprise but decisions that can affect the finances and long-term growth of the company cannot be taken without his input.
In some cases, he might be the owner of the chemical firm if he owns 100 shares of the firm, in some other cases; it is a partnership whereby it is jointly owned by the 2 or more investors. But know that the armchair investor is a risk bearer and his concerned about the growth of his investment in both short and longer term. His earning is a jumbo determined by his stake and amounts of shares he holds.


The Distributor
He is an important element in the chemical production industry. He is an entity that buys competing for chemical products or product lines, warehouses them and resells them to retailers or direct to the retailers or directly to the end users or customers. In some cases, a company chooses its distributor and get them licensed while in other cases, it is an open one where anyone with good capital can buy its products.
Their powers are limited but can be involved in promotional activities; providing strong manpower and cash support to the manufacturer’s promotional efforts. They usually also provide a range of services such as product information, estimates, technical support, after sales services, credit etc to their customers.
Financially, they are robust and with over 100% return on investment in few months.

Re: How To Produce Lubricants In Nigeria by chizillar(m): 12:24pm On Dec 31, 2017
The Facilitator
From their name, they play a facilitation role. They can play this role in any of the different value chains available in the chemical industry. They can be involved in research, creative and useful information, writing articles, publications, training, business registration and incorporation, composition, funding, planning and even mediatory roles in this industry. He is someone who engages and helps people understand their common objectives and assist them to plan how to achieve these objectives. They also enable groups and organizations to work more effectively; to collaborate and achieve synergy.
They play a supportive role and an important factor in the growth of the chemical industry. They earn from the fees they charge for their services and impact is appreciated and respected.

The Miner
If we won’t be import dependent and develop the entire value chain of the chemical industry, then the miner plays a primary but a fiduciary role.
The miner is a key player; an excavator, an explorer, a discovery man and a site maker.
Venturing as a miner requires a mining license which can be painstakingly acquired from the Federal Ministry of Mines and steel development after tendering and verification of vital documents.
A mining license is a wealth license. This is not because it takes a relative effort to acquire but because it gives one access to the country vast hidden wealth. As a result, the financial earnings of a miner will be a mind-boggling sum and over time can place one on the fortune map. On the upside, a miner can also double as a chemical exporter and he can enter and sign Memorandum of understanding (MOU) with foreign firms and as a supplier to the local industries who depend on his raw material as a pre-causer product for production.

The Chemical Importer
The importer is involved in the importation of chemical based products which are not readily available or produced in the country. The importation of chemical-based product is a profitable venture for many Nigerians. An applicant wishing to import chemicals into Nigeria should first make an application. He will apply in his company letterhead with GSM number and email which would be addressed to the Director, Narcotics and controlled substance Directorate, National Agency for Food and drug administration and Control, Oshodi, Lagos. The process involves the filing of necessary forms, presentation of other document and payment of required fees and will ultimately be issued with an import license if all conditions are met.
Financially, it is very rewarding with profit running in millions after sales of products. It is also important to note that it is strictly regulated and the license is painstaking acquired.

The Trade Merchant
The trade merchants are important stakeholders in the chemical business value chain as the chemical chain cycle cannot be completed without them. Don’t get it twisted, they are important not because the chemical industry cannot function without them but because they are closer to the end users and consumers. For a small scale chemical entrepreneur willing to venture into the production industry, he is indispensable and he can provide him with the necessary chemical, equipment, and raw materials to start the production process. He also does direct supply to different institutions such as schools, hospitals, hotels and even research institutes.
On the financial level, he averages good returns on investment if he does well in the marketing of his services. In addition, it is important to note that a trade merchant can as well be an importer of this product just as an importer can double as a trade merchant.
