English term or phrase: chain
We have planned to set up a R & D and manufacture base for new-type pharmaceutical adjuvants, pharmaceutical intermediates, finished drugs as well as various industrial cellulose ethers. In order to meet the demands of the downstream customers in pharmaceutical and chemical industrial chains,....
The "downstream" and "chain" are of course directly from the source language. Is there a better or right way to express the meaning?
TIA!!!

English translation:chain / supply chain
Explanation:
I can't say whether "chain" fits here because I'm not sure what you're trying to say. As it stands now, "chain" implies a large company with many outlets, but this usage is more typical for the retail sector (i.e. Wal-Mart, McDonalds).

Perhaps you mean "supply chain"?
