Chemical manufacturing is on the verge of a renaissance. Low feedstock costs and more investment capital have generated a spate of new chemical projects.

New logistical challenges could slow down the movement of new chemicals and prevent the industry from realizing the full benefits of increased production.
This report shares findings of PwC’s study on the link between anticipated growth of US chemical manufacturing and the logistics of transporting products to market.
