CMAI Outlines Dow Chemical’s Strategic Chemical Business Position

HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Chemical Market Associates, Inc. (CMAI), acquired by IHS Inc. (NYSE: IHS - www.ihs.com), today announced the Chemical Company Analysis (CCA) on Dow Chemical is now available. The report features comprehensive overviews of the company’s chemical businesses, including strategic direction and corporate structure; global chemical operations, and business positions of Dow Chemical and its competitors within major product markets; manufacturing site flowcharts and descriptions; as well as vertical product integration and market exposure.

The report aims at providing clients with a thorough understanding of not only the present situation, but also the impact of future developments by assessing Dow’s opportunities and risks within the framework of CMAI’s outlook for the global petrochemical industry. Rapidly changing industry structure and dynamics will necessitate company-specific responses that will determine the success of chemical producers in the future.

Dow Chemical is a diversified chemical company with approximately 50 thousand employees worldwide, 188 manufacturing sites in 35 countries, and $54 billion in net sales for 2010. Dow’s product range extends from basic chemicals and polymers to performance and specialty applications as well as agricultural chemicals. Major industries utilizing Dow’s products include consumer goods, construction, agriculture, electronics & entertainment, automotive, packaging, medical/personal care, and oil & gas. With the acquisition of Rohm & Haas in 2009, Dow accomplished a major portfolio shift toward specialty and performance products that find applications in many of the same industries.

The merger with Rohm & Haas, along with Dow’s ensuing asset sales to improve its financial situation and reduce interest expenses, moved the company away from the more competitive commodity chemicals and polymers toward specialty and performance applications. Dow’s pursuit of geographic diversification is also gaining momentum following the successful start-up of additional joint venture operations in Kuwait and Thailand. In addition, plans exist to build massive integrated petrochemical complexes in Saudi Arabia and China, as well as olefin plants in the U.S.
