U.S. Chemical Production Continues to Edge Lower

According to the American Chemistry Council, the U.S. Chemical Production Regional Index edged lower by 0.2% in September, following flat growth in August, and a 0.4% gain in July. During September, chemical output fell across all regions except the Gulf Coast, which was flat.

Chemical production was mixed over the same three-month period. There were gains in the production three-month moving average output trend of plastic resins; pesticides; fertilizers; coatings; adhesives; synthetic dyes and pigments; industrial gases; and other inorganic chemicals. These gains were offset by declines in the output trend in organic chemicals; synthetic rubber; consumer products; and other specialty chemicals.
