Icis Chemical Business Chemical Profiles in ICIS Chemical Business, 2006-2016



This is a list of Chemical Profiles published in print issues of ICIS Chemical Business since it succeeded Chemical Market Reporter in 2006, through 2016, when it ceased in print. Profiles published in digital-only issues are not listed here.

NOTE: ICIS Chemical Business is now an all-digital product with back issues since mid-2012. At present the library isn't able to provide direct access to the password-protected subscription. UT Austin patrons needing this content should contact the Chemistry Library.

Each one-page Profile includes sections on uses, supply/demand, price, production technology, and market outlook. Tables may include production capacity, market share, and average price over time. A profile covers the American, European, or Asian market.

Last issue covered: December 19, 2016
