PIERS is pleased to once again partner with InformEx, the leading conference provider to the specialty chemical market, to produce a new whitepaper available for free download.
In this whitepaper, PIERS has leveraged its data optimization and visualization tools to explore import and export trends for four prevalent early-stage ingredients for custom chemicals: naphthalene, maleic anhydride, gyloxal and adipic acid. Shipping records reveal top U.S. importers and exporters, foreign producers, and top export markets & source countries — knowledge that can help influence decisions and prompt industry players to ask the right questions when making strategic decisions.
