ICIS releases its12th annual ICIS Top 100 Chemical Distributors ranking.

ICIS announces the 12th annual ICIS Top 100 Chemical Distributors listing. Topping the global charts is Germany-based Brenntag with $14.4 billion in 2020 sales, followed by U.S.-based Univar Solutions at $8.3 billion, U.S.-based Tricon Energy at $5.2 billion, Germany-based Helm at $5 billion and Netherlands-based IMCD at $3.6 billion.

The ICIS Top 100 Chemical Distributors, which includes almost 300 companies and is the most comprehensive guide for chemical distributors worldwide according to ICIS, also ranks leaders in key geographies. The regional leaders are Brenntag (Europe), Univar Solutions (North America), Sinochem Plastics (Asia Pacific), Brenntag (Latin America) and Petrochem Middle East (Middle East and Africa).

"Through an unprecedented period of supply chain disruptions – from the Covid-19 pandemic, the US winter storm and big freeze, the Suez Canal blockage and the shortage and dislocation of shipping containers - the vital role of chemical distributors has been amplified," says Joseph Chang, global editor of ICIS Chemical Business. "Throughout the pandemic, many distributors also stepped up to help their communities with supplies of personal protective equipment (PPE) and hand sanitizer, prioritizing essential businesses such as hospitals and food production facilities."

The ICIS Top 100 Chemical Distributors has been compiled with the support of the European Association of Chemical Distributors (Fecc), the U.S.-based National Association of Chemical Distributors (NACD), Associquim (Brazilian Association of Chemical and Petrochemical Distributors), Responsible Distribution Canada (RDC) and the UK-based Chemical Business Association (CBA).
