This year’s listing features a record 231 entries, along with separate tables of geographic leaders

The annual presentation of the ICIS Top 100 Chemical Distributors listing is long awaited and much analysed by buyers and sellers in the global chemical industry.

Chemical distributors are a critical link in the supply chain, and the breadth and variety of product lines, capabilities and geographic reach are absolutely stunning.

We strive to bring you information beyond the Top 100 distributors in terms of sales, gathering all we can to give a broader picture of the sector and its diverse capabilities.

We could not fully engage in this global effort without the great help and support of the major trade organisations – US-based National Association of Chemical Distributors (NACD), the European Association of Chemical Distributors (Fecc), Associquim (Brazilian Association of Chemical and Petrochemical Distributors), the Canadian Association of Chemical Distributors (CACD), and UK-based Chemical Business Association (CBA).

We thank the associations and their memberships for making such a comprehensive listing possible, and for the commitment to the safety and security of operations for their employees, communities and supply chains.

This year we have a record 231 entries – up from 213 in the previous year. The vast majority of the companies are privately held, so we work directly with them to secure information and data. In separate tables we also break out leaders by sales in the key geographic regions of North America, Europe, Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa.
