Every industry – agriculture, energy, oil and gas, manufacturing and retail – depends on chemicals at some stage in the production process. With the chemical industry influenced by energy and market volatility, regulatory pressures, supply-chain disruption and shifting end user demand, it is crucial to understand the factors which impact your profitability.
- Deep insight and robust analysis, provided by highly credible and experienced consultants, is crucial to effectively evaluate and pursue opportunities and new business ventures.
- 2017 was the best year in a decade for global chemicals, cresting the wave of one of the longest up-cycles on record.
- Oil demand remains strong, yet prices are fluctuating at lower levels than in the past. Gas is readily available for global power needs, and for chemical production, thanks to shale technology developments. New regulations, new mobility trends will impact demand for refined products. Record M&A activity continues to re-shape the competitive landscape.
