LONDON,  April 15, 2013  /PRNewswire/ --

Chemical industry faced significant challenges in 2012 as a slowdown in the
global economy hurt demand for chemical products. The fiscal cliff issue in the
U.S. also created a great deal of uncertainty. Notwithstanding the disappointing
economic data released on Friday, the U.S. economy has shown signs of
improvement since the start of this year. Recent economic data from  China  has
also been encouraging. These developments augur well for chemical companies such
as E.I. Du Pont Nemours and Co. (NYSE: DD), The Dow Chemical Company (NYSE:
DOW), Huntsman Corporation (NYSE: HUN), and Air Products & Chemicals Inc. (NYSE:
APD). On Friday, shares of all four companies slipped, tracking losses in the
broad market, which fell after investors digested some poor U.S. economic data.
