SINGAPORE (ICIS news)--Singapore’s chemical output in February grew 10.7% year on year, led by the petrochemicals and specialties segments, the Economic Development Board (EDB) said on Friday.
Production of petrochemicals during the month surged 41.9% year on year, while specialties chemicals output grew 25.4%, it said.
“This was due mainly to the low base in the same period last year, when demand was weak,” said the EDB.
Total output of the chemicals cluster for the first two months of 2010 was 14.6% higher year on year, it said.
