Production gains occurred in North America, Central & Eastern Europe, and Africa & the Middle East, but declines were seen in Western Europe and Latin America, the ACC said.
Meanwhile, the U.S. CPRI rose 0.3% in June, with chemical output higher in all geographic regions, the ACC report said. The June gain follows a 0.5% rise in May. Compared to June of last year, the current total chemical production in all regions was ahead by 1.3%.
