New Report “North American Chemical Market: Strategic Assessments of Leading Suppliers” Published by MarketPublishers.com09 Sep 2011 • by Natalie Aster
LONDON – At present, the North American chemical market is not considered to be low growth and low margin, with the primary driver of renewed profitability and growth in the sector being the emergence of shale gas and the accompanying gas liquids.
US-based ExxonMobil Chemical's US chemical profits more than tripled to a record $3.14 billion, while US-based Dow Chemical's North American sales increased by 16% to $19.4 billion, which is the fastest growth of all geographic regions.
LyondellBasell's global EBITDA (earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization) increased by 80% to $4 billion, led by particularly strong results in the US. Georgia Gulf, a smaller US chemical company focused in North America on the challenging vinyls industry, saw its sales grow by 40% to $2.8 billion, and its operating income increase to $114 million from essentially breaking even in 2009.
