Industry Trends

Which industries have driven the changes within the Taiwanese Chemicals industry?

Fertilizers and Agricultural Chemicals-0.33%
Specialty Chemicals-1.47%
Commodity Chemicals-2.61%

Industry PE: Investors are most optimistic about the Commodity Chemicals industry which is trading above its 3-year average PE ratio of 16.9x. However analysts are expecting annual earnings decline of 15%, which is lower than the prior year's growth of 109% per year.
