Mitsui Chemicals (三井化学株式会社, Mitsui-Kagaku Kabushiki-gaisha) is a Japanese chemicals company listed on the Nikkei with business interests in Japan, Europe, China, Southeast Asia and the USA. It is a part of the Mitsui conglomerate. The company mainly deals in performance materials, petrochemicals and basic chemicals and functional polymeric materials.

With the growth of opportunities in India, Mitsui Chemicals has decided to establish[when?] its first polypropylene compounding plant in India at 'Japanese Investment park' Neemrana phase III. The unit being set up will be the manufacturing base of Mitsui Chemicals Group in India in which Mitsui Chemicals holds 80% equity and 20% equity is with another subsidiary, Prime Polymers Company of Japan.

In February 2021, the company stopped operations in their Ichihara petrochemical complex in east Japan's Chiba prefecture to carry out safety inspections after an earthquake hit northeast Japan's Fukushima prefecture.[3]
