With Chemical Data being part of ICIS, we increase our far reaching insight into the global chemical industry.


The global chemical industry is dynamic, constantly evolving, influenced by the slightest disruption. With both regional and global supply and demand shaped by countless factors, understanding the intricacies of the industry is essential. Escalating logistical costs and production issues have taken market volatility to new levels. As governmental policies drive towards a more sustainable future and instability alters supply chains across the globe, regional markets can appear vastly different from one day to another. Making sense of the up and downstream impacts is vital to managing uncertainty.

Reliable insights lead to informed decisions, and by combining the well-established expertise of Chemical Data in the US with the strength of ICIS in EMEA, LATAM, and APAC, we empower our customers to make those decisions confidently.
