Welcome to EFCG

EFCG was formed in 2004 to be the focus, the forum and the voice of the European fine chemicals manufacturers. We are a non-profit international sector group within Cefic - the Brussels-based European Chemical Industry Council - which represents 29,000 companies producing 17% of the worlds’ chemicals and employing 1.2 million people, contributing €551 billion to the EU economy.

Europe is a world leader in fine chemicals. The 150 or so European manufacturers range from smaller, often privately-owned companies to business units of larger companies. Sales range from a few millions to hundred of millions of Euros. They successfully compete in the $85+ billion global market against manufacturers in the USA, Japan and the emerging countries, especially China and India.


We operate as a sector group within CEFIC – the European Chemical Industry Council – based in Brussels who represent over 29,000 chemical companies throughout Europe.
