“ Being a seasoned business manager in the chemical industry, I can testify ITP data is proving to be extremely valuable in helping making important decision as regards to our purchasing strategy. The data are very accurate and, over a period of time, greatly help to identify trends, both at global and regional level. It’s a website that we find far superior in providing this unique capacity to translate data into knowledge.
ITP team is great in its customer support, very close to its customers’ requirements and always ready to adapt and customise their offer to specific needs. ”
An accurate understanding of trade flows became critically important for strategic planning across the industry following the burgeoning growth of the petrochemical industry in the 1970s, with new facilities coming on stream in the Middle East and across the globe, and the volume of exports by producing countries to markets abroad exploding. International Trader Publications was founded in 1984 to provide that understanding.
Then, as now, ITP analyzes trade by applying a solid understanding of chemistry and of the Harmonized System to an expanding database with statistics for every available country. We remain deeply focused on providing the highest level of service to our valued subscribers.
Our medium-term focus is three-fold: on innovation around our core offerings, on creating visualizations to make our data more accessible, more useful, and more powerful, and on the education of our subscribers to help them make the most of these tools.
Ours is a small, dedicated team with diverse backgrounds in business, chemistry, software engineering, and data analysis. In our previous jobs, we have worked for Fortune 500 companies in chemicals, technology, market research, and banking.
Despite our nearly 40-year history, our culture is very much that of a startup – lean, adaptive, open, and relationship-focused.
Our combined experience and unique culture make ours a great team – one that is ready to support yours.
