ABSTRACT
The article presents the ICIS Top 100 listing of global chemical producers and discusses how events, such as hurricanes, have affected the results. Buoyant demand helped drive the chemical industry in 2005 towards another year of strong growth, despite setbacks. The leading players in the sector pushed sales higher on the back of stronger volumes and particularly on higher prices. Top of the listing again in 2005 is BASF with group sales of more than $50bn, 14% higher than in 2005.
