HOUSTON, Texas – Plunkett Research, Ltd. recently announced an important market research and competitive analysis report, Plunkett’s Chemicals, Coatings & Plastics Industry Almanac, 2018 edition. A complete market research report, including forecasts and market estimates, technologies analysis and developments at innovative firms.
The businesses of chemicals, coatings and plastics are closely linked, and those sectors, in turn, are closely linked to the oil and gas industry. This is a research-based industry that requires massive capital expenditures on the production end. The chemicals industry is also a cyclical business, highly subject to costs for basic commodities (especially oil and gas) and open to rapid changes in fortune due to the ups and downs of the global economy. However, long-term trends point to increasing demand for many types of chemical products.
Plunkett Research lists top 400 companies in the Chemicals, Coatings & Plastics Industry and names the top trends changing for the mid term.
