There is no avoiding the fact that most modern conveniences are attributable in some way to the use of chemicals in production. That stated, investor groups have become interested in how this matter will create winners and losers in various sectors. Innovest’s report, Cross-Cutting Effects of Chemical Liability from Products, offers a pioneering analysis comparing companies’ chemical management policies. Electronics, cosmetics, and pesticide manufacturers are among the many companies that could face loss of market share and access to major markets due to “toxic lockouts.” Innovest examines this double-sided issue as well as other risks in four industry sectors (Household and Personal Care Products, Multi-Line Retail, Healthcare Equipment and Supplies and Household Durables) in this analysis. Growing consumer and market interest in “safer chemicals” is spurring the development of new markets for higher value added and differentiated products.
