The article discusses the state of the chemical industry in Australia. The Australian chemical industry is stagnating. It is threatened by product end-users moving abroad and imports increasing in quantity and in quality. Export success remains selective and fragile. In order to turn the tyranny of distance in Australia into an advantage for local suppliers, a strong customer focus is needed.
