Current Industry PE: Investors are relatively neutral on the industry at the moment, considering it's trading close to its 3-year average PE ratio of 9.3x. However, future earnings are expected to decline by 5.3% which could potentially cause the PE ratio to fall below its historical average.

Past Earnings Growth: The earnings for companies in the Chemicals industry have grown 22% per year over the last three years, and revenues for these companies have grown 16% per year. This means that more sales are being generated by these companies overall, and subsequently their profits are increasing too.
