The chemical industry is a $1 trillion global industry with a high level of competition- especially at the commodity chemicals end of the spectrum. The industry has witnessed high levels of M&A activity in recent years- a trend that is expected to continue. Globally, growth in the chemicals industry benefits from more construction and consumption in faster-growing economies of Brazil, Asia and India. Greater consumption in emerging markets and more production in North America is driving CAGR to 4%. In the US, revenue from the chemical processing industry is approximately $325 billion. Growth in North America is being fueled by a recovering economy and a surplus of inexpensive natural gas, inducing processors to develop additional domestic capacity.

Geo Strategy Partners understands the dynamics of the chemical industry and serves clients in this sector with customized research and analysis, strategy consulting, and M&A support.
