Icis Chemical Business Chemical Profiles in ICIS Chemical Business



This is a list of Chemical Profiles published in ICIS Chemical Business (print) since it succeeded Chemical Market Reporter in mid-2006.*

Each one-page Profile includes sections on uses, supply/demand, price, production technology, health and safety concerns, and market outlook. Tables may include production capacity, market share, and average price over time. A profile covers the American, European, or worldwide market. In 2012 ICIS added an Asian profile and currently publishes two profiles per issue.

Latest Issue Included: November 10, 2014*

* "Digital-only" issues began to appear in 2014, available only to personal subscribers; these are not included in the table.
