Chemicals

PwC continues to have the leading market share in the chemical industry. We have worked with a diversified portfolio of public and private chemical companies and have a deep understanding of the assurance, business and tax issues facing the sector. With an uneven global recovery likely to accelerate international sourcing, marketing and deal considerations, our network is well-positioned to help clients with the timing and allocation of capital investments and to navigate changing global conditions around export controls, government contracting and shared services.
