One of the biggest challenges you can have, as a person involved in the manufacture of chemical products, is that of arriving at the right price for the said products.
To arrive at the right price for a chemical product, you will have to factor in the cost of inputs that go into its manufacture.
To arrive at the right price for a chemical product, you will have to factor in the desired profit margins.
At yet another level, to arrive at the right price for a chemical product, you will have to factor in what competitors are offering the same product for.
In the final analysis, chances are that you won’t be able to offer your chemical product free of charge, like the www.gmail.com service (as the Gmail business model wouldn’t work for a tangible product). But we still need to remember that there is the premium Gmail service which is still offered through the main Gmail.com page, and which is paid for. The price you settle for should be enough to pay for the inputs, give you a decent profit margin, and still end up with a product that is able to compete with other similar products in the market (unless you are operating in a monopoly).
