About FMC Corp.
FMC Corporation, a chemical company, provides solutions, applications, and products for agricultural, consumer, and industrial markets worldwide.
The company operates in three business segments: Agricultural Products, Specialty Chemicals and Industrial Chemicals.
The Agricultural Products segment develops, manufactures, and sells a portfolio of crop protection, professional pest control, and lawn and garden products. It develops, markets, and sells three major classes of crop protection chemicals, including insecticides, herbicides, and fungicides. These products are used in agriculture to improve crop yield by controlling a spectrum of insects, weeds, and disease, as well as pest control in non-agricultural markets.
Insecticides are used to control a range of insects, including chewing pests (such as caterpillars) and sucking pests (such as aphids). Insecticides are applied as sprays, dusts or granules and are used on various crops, such as fruits, vegetables, cotton, soybean, corn and cereals. There are various major classes of insecticide chemistries, including organophosphates, carbamates, pyrethroids, and neonicotinoids. Herbicides prevent or inhibit weed growth, thereby reducing or eliminating the need for manual or mechanical weeding. Fungicides prevent or inhibit the spread of plant disease which can adversely impact crop yields and quality. Fungicides are used on various crops, such as fruits, vegetables, soybean, cereals, and rice.
The company accesses key western European markets through a Belgian-based pesticide distribution company, Belchim Crop Protection N.V., in which it has an ownership interest. It also has joint venture arrangements with Nufarm Limited in three countries in eastern Europe, which allows it to capitalize on growth in this part of Europe. In North America, the company accesses the market through major national and regional distributors. In the agricultural market of Brazil, the company accesses the market in part through independent distributors and in part, it sells directly to large growers.
Competition: The company identifies competition from Syngenta AG; Bayer AG; Monsanto Company; BASF AG; The Dow Chemical Company; E. I. du Pont de Nemours and Company (DuPont); Makhteshim-Agan Industries Ltd.; Sumitomo Chemical Company Limited; Nufarm Limited; Arysta LifeScience Corporation; United Phosphorous Limited; and Cheminova A/S.
The Specialty Chemicals segment is focused on food ingredients, pharmaceutical excipients and encapsulants, biomedical technologies, and lithium specialty products. It primarily offers specialty chemicals to customers in non-cyclical end markets.
This segment consists of its BioPolymer and lithium businesses and focuses on food ingredients that are used to improve texture, structure, and physical stability, pharmaceutical additives for binding, encapsulation, and disintegrant applications, ultrapure biopolymers for medical devices and lithium specialties for pharmaceutical synthesis, specialty polymers, and energy storage.
BioPolymer: BioPolymer serves the food, pharmaceutical, and biomedical device markets. BioPolymer is a supplier of microcrystalline cellulose (MCC), carrageenan and alginatesingredients that have high value-added applications in the production of food, pharmaceutical, and other specialty consumer and industrial products. MCC, processed from specialty grades of both hardwood pulp and softwood pulp, provides binding and disintegrant properties for dry tablets and capsules. Carrageenan and alginates, both processed from seaweed, are used in food, pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, and biopharmaceutical applications, which provide alginate and carrageenan-based encapsulant technologies for pharmaceutical and nutraceutical uses. In its Novamatrix business the company is developing technology platforms within biomedical markets which develop and provide ultrapure biopolymers and application know-how for biomedical devices.
Lithium: Lithium is a vertically-integrated technology business, based on both inorganic and organic lithium chemistries. It focuses on energy storage,

SWOT, which stands for Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats, is an analytical framework that identifies the internal and external factors that are favorable and unfavorable for a company.
Enhanced SWOT Analysis
Enhanced SWOT is a 3×3 grid that arranges strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats into one scheme:
- How to use the strengths to take advantage of the opportunities?
- How to use the strengths to reduce likelihood and impact of the threats?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that obstruct taking advantage of the opportunities?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that can make the threats a reality?
Upon answering these questions a company can develop a project plan to improve its business performance.
PESTEL (also termed as PESTLE) is an ideal tool to strategically analyze what influence different outside factors – political, economic, sociocultural, technological, environmental and legal – exert on a business to later chart its long term targets.
Being part of the external analysis when carrying out a strategic assessment or performing a market study, PESTEL gives an overview of diverse macro-environmental factors that any company should thoughtfully consider. By perceiving these outside environments, businesses can maximally benefit from the opportunities while minimizing the threats to the organization.
Key Factors Examined by PESTEL Analysis:
- Political – What opportunities and pressures are brought by political bodies and what is the degree of public regulations’ impact on the business?
- Economic – What economic policies, trends and structures are expected to affect the organization, what is this influence’s degree?
- Sociological – What cultural and societal aspects will work upon the demand for the business’s products and operations?
- Technological – What impact do the technological aspects, innovations, incentives and barriers have on the organization?
- Environmental – What environmental and ecological facets, both locally and farther afield, are likely to predetermine the business?
- Legal – What laws and legislation will exert influence on the style the business is carried out?
IFE, EFE, IE Matrices
The Internal Factor Evaluation matrix (IFE matrix) is a strategic management tool helping audit or evaluate major weaknesses and strengths in a business’s functional areas. In addition, IFE matrix serves as a basis for identifying and assessing relationships amongst those areas. The IFE matrix is utilised in strategy formulation.
The External Factor Evaluation matrix (EFE matrix) is a tool of strategic management that is typically utilised to assess current market conditions. It is an ideal instrument for visualising and prioritising the threats and opportunities a firm is facing.
The essential difference between the above mentioned matrices lies in the type of factors incorporated in the model; whilst the latter is engaged in internal factors, the former deals exceptionally with external factors – those exposed to social, political, economic, legal, etc. external forces.
Being a continuation of the EFE matrix and IFE matrix models, the Internal External matrix (IE matrix) rests upon an investigation of external and internal business factors integrated into one suggestive model.
Porter Five Forces Analysis
The Porter’s five forces analysis studies the industry of operation and helps the company find new sources of competitive advantage. The analysis surveys an industry through five major questions:
- What composes a threat of substitute products and services?
- Is there a threat of new competitors entering the market?
- What is the intensity of competitive rivalry?
- How big is the bargaining power of buyers?
- How significant is the bargaining power of suppliers?
VRIO stands for Value, Rarity, Imitability, Organization. This analysis helps to evaluate all company’s resources and capabilities and bring them together into one aggregate table that includes:
- Tangible resources
- Intangible resources
- Innovation and Creativity
- Organizational capabilities
The result of the analysis gives a clear picture of company’s competitive and economic implications, answering the questions if the resources mentioned above are:
- Costly to imitate?
- Organized properly?
