North American Market Coverage Criteria|
The Chemical Processing Industry (CPI) includes major processing plants for organic and inorganic chemicals, industrial gases, petrochemical complexes, plastics producers, paints and pigments, coatings, and detergent manufacturers. Our strict qualification guidelines ensure that every major processing plant is represented in our database. Project research comes from a database of 6,000 North American plants, and includes tracking grassroot construction, expansions, unit additions, as well as a more concentrated focus on turnaround activity in the ethylene market. For more information, see the Ethylene Database.

- Detergents and other Household Product Producers - Manufacturers of soaps and detergents, cleaners, bleaches, disinfectants, and surface agents. Personal use products, such as deodorants, hair sprays, cosmetics, and liquid and bar soaps.
- Plastics, Rubbers, Fibers, and Resins Manufacturers - Companies performing compounding or extrusion and molding operations for the production of raw materials in pellet, billet or fiber form.
- Painting and Coating Producers - Manufacturers of pigments, coatings, solvents, lacquers, enamels, stains, and varnishes for finishing.
- Producers of Other Chemicals - From explosives to inks, dyes, glue lubricants, fire retardants, and chemical preparations.
- Alkalies and Chlorine - Producers of caustic soda, soda ash (not produced at mines), chlorine (compressed or liquefied), carbonates (potassium and sodium).
Project coverage initially begins with a database of approximately 2,371 active projects representing $91 billion in value for North America. The chemical industry has been most impacted by the downturn in the economy due to its tie to consumer products. Coverage includes both capital and maintenance projects valued at $1 million and greater.

| ||Project Count||TIV||Total Contacts|
The Chemical Processing Industry plant database consists of over 6,000 plants locations across North America. Approximately 3,843 plants are operational, while 500 plants are under development resulting from grassroot construction activity. Information is also available on 1,693 closed plant sites (decommissioned). Plant details for operational plants include key management contacts which represent over 34,000 management contacts. Each plant record is continuously phone verified for quality assurance and accuracy throughout the year.
|Each Plant Profile Identifies:|
- Company ownership and parent company
- Physical and mailing addresses,
- Phone and fax numbers,
- SIC descriptions,
- Start-up Date
- Union Status
- Fuel Type
- Key Management Contacts with Email addresses*
|Sample Plant Report|
|U.S. Coverage||CA/MX Coverage|
Each plant record includes up to 8 functional management contacts. Most contacts are identified on-site; however, we also provide corporate contacts in management positions if a particular responsibility is handled off-site. Corporate contacts are identified as “Off-Site,” whereas plant management contacts are marked with an “On-Site” status.
