ICIS Top 100 Chemical Distributors ranking unveiled with Brenntag at #1

May 31, 2023

ICIS is pleased to announce the 14th annual ICIS Top 100 Chemical Distributors, the most comprehensive global ranking of these essential companies in the chemical supply chain.

Topping the charts is Germany-based Brenntag with $20.9bn in 2022 sales, followed by US-based Tricon Energy at $12.5bn, US-based Univar Solutions at $11.5bn, Germany-based Helm at $8.6bn and Japan-based Nagase & Co at $6.0bn.

The ICIS Top 100 Chemical Distributors listing, which also includes information on more than 300 companies, additionally ranks leaders in key geographies. The regional leaders are Brenntag (Europe), Univar Solutions (North America), Nagase & Co (Asia Pacific), and Tricon Energy (Latin America / Middle East & Africa).

“Chemical distributors are evolving quickly to serve growing and ever-more complex needs of both suppliers and customers. Last year, they successfully navigated huge supply chain challenges stemming from the RussiaUkraine war, energy volatility and lingering effects from the pandemic,” said Joseph Chang, global editor of ICIS Chemical Business.

“This year, distributors are sharpening their focus on helping customers achieve sustainability and net zero carbon emissions goals. This includes not only working with suppliers to offer more products with lower carbon footprints and bio-based and recycled content but also providing greater transparency on these key sustainability aspects,” he added.

The ICIS Top 100 Chemical Distributors has been compiled with the support of the European Association of Chemical Distributors (Fecc), the US-based National Association of Chemical Distributors (NACD), Associquim (Brazilian Association of Chemical and Petrochemical Distributors) and Responsible Distribution Canada (RDC).

The ICIS Top 100 Chemical Distributors ranking, a global listing based on 2022 sales and year-end 2022 currency exchange rates, appears in the special 19 May 2023 issue of ICIS Chemical Business in association with the Fecc (European Association of Chemical Distributors) and is available for download here.
