Price earning (PE) in the chemicals and resources sector in Europe 2021, by industry

The price to earnings (P/E) ratio is a measurement often used to determine stock valuation. In short, P/E is used to measure what the market is willing to pay for a company based on its earnings. The trailing P/E for chemicals companies operating in the specialty market was approximately 63.2. This meant in theory that investors would be willing to pay 63.2 (dollars or currency used) for every one the company made through earnings.

Another formula that is used by investors to measure the value of an industry or potential target company for acquisition is the enterprise value to earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EV/EBITDA).
