Shale Gas Feedstock Benefits to Keep North America Ahead of Others 

Geographically, North America leads the global chemical distribution market. In 2017, it accounted for nearly 15% of the overall revenue generated in this market. With feedstock benefits stirring the market up and massive demand-supply rebalancing, this regional market is likely to remain on the top over the next few years. After economic recovery, the U.S. has gained significant operational cost advantages from shale gas feedstock, improving the profitability of a number of chemical companies in the chemical distribution market. 

Recent economic crisis in the developed market, such as collapsing of the Eurozone, however, has incited chemical companies to explore other markets. Europe is expected to register a steady rise in the demand for chemicals in the near future, which, in turn, is projected to attract heavy investments from key players. Constant development in infrastructure and improvement in the manufacturing sector are also anticipated to support the growth in the regional chemical distribution market. 

Among developing markets, Asia Pacific is likely to register a high-paced growth in the next couple of years, with a large number of chemical companies shifting their bases to emerging economies of Asia Pacific.
