Corporations have responded well with a variety of growth and defensive strategies and some of which have shed traditional low marginal operations with respect to new markets or products, other corporations have thoroughly pursued extensive cost reductions to ensure terminal profitability and some have simply retreated from the market either through sale or bankruptcy. The chemicals industry continues to face unparalleled market and competitive disadvantage. We perform a broad spectrum of work across these verticals, including strategy development at both ends of the corporate and business unit level to achieve performance improvement and induce merger integration. This global experience is always combined with motivated client management teams help develop proprietary insights that unlock significant value for our customers. Markets with dynamic ends are shifting profit pools and highly variable demand and are leading corporations to re evaluate the long going time tested strategies. Formulating all of this is occurring at a pace that leaves little time for managers to reflect on their options. Still other organizations have moved aggressively to drive top-line growth by doubling down on serving their best customers to gain share, shifting asset portfolios to attractive future markets and building new go-to-market capabilities. This turmoil is not very healthy, and the results of these efforts have been mixed. Corporations that have been successful in increasing revenue and profits focused on the development of core businesses to their full potential and conducted selective expansion into attractive adjacencies. Low-cost players and feed stocks are changing the fundamental economics of the industry in unexpected ways; hence forth forcing established competitors to re analyze and re negotiate their existing footprint and operating models.
