Chemical Processing (CPI)

Petrochemicals, Specialty Chemicals, Plastics & More

The Chemical Processing Industry encompasses a broad range of products, including petrochemical and inorganic chemicals, plastics, detergents, paints, pigments and more. The industry continues to grow as global demand for these products increases in both developed and developing countries. In the U.S., optimism persists regarding future spending in the industry amid consistent consumer/chemical demand and abundant cheap feedstock. Producers in the U.S. Gulf Coast and the Middle East continue to invest in new capacity for petrochemicals and derivatives.

Coverage within Industrial Info's Chemical Processing Industry:

Industrial Info's Chemical Processing Industry Platform contains consistently updated information on approximately 16,800 active capital and maintenance projects globally with a combined value of $930 billion, at more than 20,000 operational and pre-commissioned plant locations.

Long-Term Service Agreements (LTSA)

Industrial Info's LTSA data is a product offered within the plant profile platform providing details about on-site engineering and maintenance contractors, as well as preferred contractors by a particular plant on a per-project basis. This information is constantly updated via phone interviews throughout the year, as well as upon contract expiration.

The LTSA Platform helps recognize key third-party players in the daily operations of plants, identifies opportunities to pursue associated maintenance or capital work, and detects key competitors specific to a plant. Search the platform using your own criteria to track LTSA contractors by geography or company. Build queries around LTSAs expiring in specific time periods, or discover where certain LTSA contractors are currently contracted and for what type of service or trade.


Industrial Info's Analytics Products help supplement our online platform and give our clients a long-term view of where spending is expected to be and its major trends or drivers.
