Unfortunately, the mood in the industry and the wider global economy is much more downbeat then when we closed out 2015 with our last edition, just 4 months ago. With continued slowdown in China, the disruption of a US Presidential election, fears over `Brexit’ and stock market volatility around the world, business confidence has been shaken. Our medium-term view is that the fundamentals underlying the global chemical industry remain strong.
In this edition, we bring you a focus on how chemical companies can respond to the ongoing disruption in supply chains brought about by the dislocation of supply and demand in the global industry. We also have a special feature on the DowDuPont transaction and what that means in the context of wider strategic moves within the chemical industry.
