IHS Chemical offers an expert view of the $7+ billion Performance Chemicals business set to be divested by DuPont.
A new special edition of the IHS Chemical Chemical Company Analysis (CCA) analyzes DuPont's Performance Chemicals businesses in light of current and projected future market developments. The Performance Chemicals segment, which includes DuPont Titanium Technologies, Fluorochemicals/Polymers, and Chemical Solutions, faces both risks and opportunities in a rapidly changing market environment as outlined in the CCA Special Edition.
The DuPont Performance Chemicals CCA Special Edition provides clients with thorough research and analysis featuring a comprehensive overview of this specific business segment.
DuPont has remained a global market leader in both titanium dioxide and fluorochemical production in addition to occupying prominent positions in several other chemical markets. Leading proprietary technologies and a steady stream of new product developments based on extensive R&D spending enabled DuPont to maintain a dominant position for many decades. However, the recent transformation of the chemical industry with the rapid ascent of companies in the emerging markets, have introduced new challenges and opportunities for established Western-based producers. A closer look at DuPont Performance Chemical’s competitive position provides insights into their strengths and weaknesses in the marketplace based on assessments of feedstock integration, geographic coverage, technology and growth prospects. The major products in this business segment analyzed in this report are titanium dioxide, fluorochemicals, sulfuric acid, sodium cyanide, hydrogen cyanide, aniline, methylamines, and dimethyl ether.
With the Chemical Company Analysis series, clients receive detailed analysis and data covering not only DuPont Performance Chemicals, but also the global industry's structure and the larger market forces at play. Each report leverages IHS Chemical company and industry expertise to assess the major chemical producers and the current global business areas and products in which they operate.
