Around The World – Sector 1Q22 Reports Reflect Many Benefits That Face Mounting Headwinds

Key Points:

  • Chemical sector 1Q22 reports broadly beat expectations but reflect limited growth investment amid considerable global uncertainty. Efforts to further lift prices are mounting, and so is the risk consumers will not accept them.
  • We highlight pertinent energy, chemical, and other corporate updates (e.g., Methanex, Orbia, Huntsman, Wacker, Bunge, Linde, MEGlobal, others).
  • We discuss relevant ESG items ranging from rising Air Liquide investment in energy transition projects to challenges facing the green hydrogen market. See our latest ESG weekly and other related research coverage in LINK.
  • We discuss numerous other pertinent chemical sector items in this report.
