COVID-19 impacted the global economy as it has restricted the movement of people and industrial operations, decreased the local demand, and destabilized the international financial markets. The pandemic and decrease in crude oil prices had a significant impact on companies revenue in 2020. This led to disruption in demand, and companies have reduced their production of oil and gas, impacting sales volume and utilization of refining and chemical plants.

Companies have initiated the following developments:

  • In August 2020, Sasol Ltd entered into a distribution agreement with DKSH Management Ltd (Switzerland) for marketing, distribution, and logistics for Sasols chemicals and wax products in the European market.
  • In March 2020, Calumet Specialty Products Partners acquired Paralogics, LLC (U.S), a producer of the candle and industrial wax blends, and has added 20 million pounds of annual blending and formulating capabilities.
