The awards, which are given an­nu­ally by the Is­tan­bul Chem­i­cals and Chem­i­cal Prod­ucts Ex­porters' As­so­ci­a­tion ( IKMIB) to honor and en­cour­age the mem­ber com­pa­nies in the chem­i­cal in­dus­try for their suc­cess in ex­ports, have found their own­ers. At the IKMIB Stars of Ex­port Award Cer­e­mony, which was held on­line for the first time due to the pan­demic, 140 com­pa­nies rank­ing among the top 5 in 28 cat­e­gories were awarded.

T he chem­i­cal in­dus­try, which is a strate­gic sec­tor that is di­rectly or in­di­rectly in con­tact with many sec­tors by pro­vid­ing raw ma­te­ri­als, semi- prod­ucts and prod­ucts, achieved a great suc­cess by break­ing a his­tor­i­cal record with ex­ports of $ 20.6 bil­lion in 2019. Hav­ing a share of 11.44 per­cent in Turkey's to­tal ex­ports, the chem­i­cal in­dus­try grew by 18.54 per­cent in 2019. Rep­re­sent­ing about 7 thou­sand ex­port­ing com­pa­nies from sev­eral sub­sec­tors from plas­tics to cos­met­ics, from phar­ma­ceu­ti­cals

to rub­ber, from med­i­cal to paint, IKMIB has re­al­ized more than 50 per­cent of Turkey's to­tal chem­i­cal ex­ports.

The Stars of Ex­ports, which have a big share in this suc­cess of the sec­tor and re­al­ized the high­est vol­ume of chem­i­cal ex­ports in 2019, have been de­ter­mined. The 2019 IKMIB Stars of Ex­port Award Cer­e­mony, which was held for the fifth time this year, was held vir­tu­ally. Or­ga­nized for the first time by IKMIB, the on­line award cer­e­mony was shared live on IKMIB's YouTube chan­nel and web­site.
