HOUSTON (ICIS news)--Chemical Market Reporter (CMR), a magazine with a 135-year history of covering the industry in the US, is being re-launched next week with a wider reach as ICIS Chemical Business Americas, its publisher will announce on Monday.
The re-branding follows extensive research and consultations with thousands of readers.

ICIS Chemical Business Americas will include analysis of key markets such as Commodities, Specialties, Pharmaceuticals/Fine Chemicals and Oils, Fats and Waxes, as well as Wall Street and Washington, he said. The magazine will also include special features on important issues, and publish regular summaries of chemical price movements as well as chemical profiles.
The new Environmental Affairs section will cover regulatory issues and corporate efforts, while the new Market Intelligence section will include analysis from ICIS industry experts. Future coverage will include special reports on logistics.
