Icis Chemical Business Chemical Profiles in ICIS Chemical Business



This is a list of Chemical Profiles published in ICIS Chemical Business since it succeeded Chemical Market Reporter in mid-2006. Text of the profiles can usually be found in Business Source Complete, but lacking graphics and charts. Access via the ICIS web site is by personal subscription only. Print volumes are held in the Chemistry Library's journal stacks by title; recent issues are in our Reading Room.

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.
