150 years of shaping the world by connecting markets to optimise global resources

ICIS, Independent Commodity Intelligence Services, connects data, markets and customers to create a comprehensive trusted view of global commodities markets, enabling smarter business decisions that help optimise the world’s resources. For decades, our prices have been the backbone of thousands of transactions around the world.

Making the world’s most important markets more trusted and predictable

At ICIS, we help businesses across the chemical and energy markets make strategic decisions, mitigate risk and capitalise on new opportunities. A trusted source and benchmark for price information and insight across key commodities markets worldwide, our independent, transparent market intelligence informs thousands of quality decisions every day- taking the pressure out of negotiations and giving customers space for more innovative thinking.

Shaping the future

With an impressive 150-year heritage, we are uniquely placed to draw on years of robust market expertise and a network of deep industry relationships. Our expert analysts and market specialists are embedded in over 143 markets globally, tracking, interpreting and translating market developments. Together with our people, data science and innovative technology, we create a clearer view of chemicals, recycled plastics, renewable energy and emerging technologies to help inform the global drive towards circularity.

In a rapidly changing chemical industry with changing regulation, geopolitical unrest, unpredictable feedstock availability and an evolving consumer landscape, planning a path to success can be challenging.

With volatility, also lies opportunity. Deep, clear thinking powered by the right data, the right technology and the right insights is key to seeing and seizing these opportunities. Because the smart decisions you make today build a more secure, more sustainable future, for your business, your customers and your markets.
