Chemical companies face a broad range of risk issues related to the very nature of their products and processes. Emerging issues—such as expansion in emerging economies, availability of raw materials, increasingly complex supply chains, and an ever-changing regulatory environment along with more traditional concerns—risks of fires and explosions, workforce safety, and environmental liabilities— represent some of the many threats to the success of companies operating in the chemical sector.

This challenging environment has given rise to a new set of risks as well as heightened concern with traditional exposures.
