The article comments on the performance of the chemical industry. This is not a bad time to be a producer of downstream or speciality chemicals by any means, even though the challenges presented by the business are many and increasingly varied. The third quarter of 2006 is expected to have been good for the sector in Europe. The downstream chemicals and specialities sector in Europe and in North America is much changed and continues to be transformed, but most companies are honed in towards underlying strengths.
