Research Report Highlights Top US Chemical Export Markets

A new report that examines the top markets for U.S. chemical exports based on the volume of waterborne shipments is available from PIERS and Informex.

PIERS, which compiles database of U.S. waterborne trade activity, and chemical industry marketplace Informex partnered to create the report, “Market Opportunities for U.S. Chemical Exports: An Examination of Growth Across Major Markets.”

The report examines top markets for U.S. chemical exports classified under chapters 28 & 29 of the harmonized tariff schedule. In each of these markets, the report provides a macro-assessment of selected commodities that have shown significant growth between 2007 and 2011 and are traded in relatively high volume.

The report was designed to give chemical manufacturers, distributors, end users and those servicing the chemical supply chain a high-level of view of top markets based on aggregate data for U.S. chemical exports.

Markets covered in the report include Brazil, India, China, South Korea, Belgium and the Netherlands. Some key findings include: U.S. exports of nucleic acids to Brazil grew 491 percent from 2007 to 2011, and U.S. exports of halogenated derivatives of hydrocarbons to China grew 129.7 percent from 2007 to 2011.
