The Chemical Manufacturing subsector is based on the transformation of organic and inorganic raw materials by a chemical process and the formulation of products. This subsector distinguishes the production of basic chemicals that comprise the first industry group from the production of intermediate and end products produced by further processing of basic chemicals that make up the remaining industry groups. This subsector does not include all industries transforming raw materials by a chemical process. It is common for some chemical processing to occur during mining operations. These beneficiating operations, such as copper concentrating, are classified in NAICS Code - 21 Mining, Quarrying, and Oil and Gas Extraction. Furthermore, the refining of crude petroleum is included in NAICS Code - 324 Petroleum and Coal Products Manufacturing. In addition, the manufacturing of aluminum oxide is included in NAICS Code - 331 Primary Metal Manufacturing; and beverage distilleries are classified in NAICS Code - 312 Beverage and Tobacco Product Manufacturing. As is the case of these two activities, the grouping of industries into subsectors may take into account the association of the activities performed with other activities in the subsector.
