Industrial chemical industry data shows strong performance for first half of 2017

On September 1, the Chemistry Industry Association of Canada (CIAC) released a new report titled Industrial Chemical Industry: Performance Snapshot – First Half of 2017. Overall, industrial chemicals had a strong first half. In the second quarter, all metrics were up except for railcar loadings, which was down slightly.  Data mostly points to the performance being led by improvements in product pricing.
