We are delighted to present our ICIS Top 100 Chemical Distributors ranking. Year after year we have had increased participation among these critical components in the chemical supply chain. This eighth year is no exception, with another record amount of entries worldwide.

Indeed while it is branded the ICIS Top 100 Chemical Distributors, we include many more beyond the top 100 as measured by sales, as it is important to showcase the wide diversity of players in the sector and on a global basis. Sales range from $11bn for the largest, to $1m for the smallest.

We welcome the new entries in this growing list, and give a big thanks to our partner associations for their enthusiasm and support. These are the US-based National Association of Chemical Distributors (NACD), the European Association of Chemical Distributors (Fecc), Associquim (Brazilian Association of Chemical and Petrochemical Distributors), Responsible Distribution Canada (RDC) and UK-based Chemical Business Association (CBA).

This year’s listing reflects 2016 sales, and for those companies that disclose regional sales, we also break out separate tables by geography based on sales in those regions – North America, Europe, Asia, Latin America, and Middle East and Africa.

We are always pleasantly surprised to find more and more chemical distributors around the world willing to disclose important information about their business, and we aim to keep up the momentum in engagement. We hope you find this comprehensive listing most helpful.
