"We've seen a decline in readership across all magazines in this sector, which
demonstrates that none of the current publishers have effectively evolved with
customer needs,' explained Christopher Flook, ICIS Publishing Director. "We are

analyzing the story behind news headlines, and delivering a well designed,

magazine teams, correspondents in other parts of the world, not least in Asia and
the Middle East, will bolster unrivalled chemical coverage in the new ICIS Chemical

"As the chemical industry becomes truly global, and booming markets like China are
increasingly attracting interest from businesses around the world, it has become
vital for us to reflect the global nature of the industry in a single magazine,"

to provide our readers and advertisers with a unique features-led magazine, which
will lead the market in detailed analysis of new areas and issues such as consumer

ever before in a magazine they will want to keep and refer to for more than just a
week," she added.

The new features-led ICIS Chemical Business with its extended shelf life will bring
regular coverage of markets, politics, economics, financial commentary, country
