In August 2020, Daydream – Dynovel has published a Top 300 Chemical Companies Report, with a thorough study made based on major data disclosed for 2019 by various chemical companies as follows:

At the beginning of 2021, while preparing to update Top 300 Report and extend it to Top 400, we decided to publish a simplified version of the 2019 Top 300 Report, with 2 parts:

  • Part 1: TOP 300 companies List rank by 2019 Turnover, Number of Patents, and R&D expenditures
  • Part 2: TOP 100 – Chemical R&D Performance: Ranking Aggregate 2019 figures
    • Turnover/1000 Employees
    • Patents/1000 Employees
    • R&D Expenditures/1000 Employees

You will find all the commercial options we propose around this topic at the bottom of this D-News after the article.

Part 2: 2019 Chemical R&D Performance

In order to come up with the final ranking and to define the top 100 companies the following parameters were considered:

  • Rank Turnover/1000 Employees: to evaluate the efficiency of the company today
  • Rank Patents/ 1000 Employees: to evaluate the innovation efficiency of the company today
  • Rank R&D Expenditures. / 1000 Employees: to evaluate the innovation potential for the future

The following formula was applied to define the final ranking:

Average of [Rank Turnover/1000 Employees in 2019]; [Rank Patents published in 2019 /1000 FTE] and [Ranking of the R&D Expenditures in 2019 /1000 FTE].

The final ranking for top 100 chemical companies:
