The global chemical industry is facing a changing competitive landscape: entire value chains shift to Asia, new players emerge in the Middle East, U.S. petrochemicals take advantage of the shale gas revolution, consolidation in customer sectors drags down margins while the potential for new chemical entities appears to be largely exploited.
