Current Industry PE: Investors are more pessimistic on the industry, considering it's trading at a PE ratio of 17.1x which is lower than its 3-year average PE of 23.8x. It appears they believe that earnings will not grow as fast as they have historically.

Past Earnings Growth: The earnings for companies in the Chemicals industry have remained mostly flat over the last three years, while revenues for these companies have declined 3.1% per year. This means that the cost of doing business could be reducing since sales have declined but profits have remained steady.

Industry Trends

Which industries have driven the changes within the Saudi Arabian Chemicals industry?

Diversified Chemicals-5.65%
