DowDuPont - statistics & facts

DowDuPont was a United States-based chemical company that was formed on September 1, 2017 following the merger of Dow Chemical and DuPont. Based on sales, it was the largest chemical companies worldwide. Its headquarters were split between Midland, Michigan and Wilmington, Delaware.

DowDuPont's spin-off

In April 2019, the DowDuPont conglomerate separated into three companies: Dow, dedicated to commodity chemicals, DuPont, dedicated to specialty chemicals, and Corteva, dedicated to agricultural chemicals and seeds.

Reactions and criticism to the DowDuPont merger

The merger didn't come without criticism. The European Commission spent time assessing whether the merger would concurrently kill competition in relevant business areas. Consequently, the merger date was pushed back several times with the commission finally approving in April 2017. Despite the delayed approval, speculation remains on whether such concentrated power in the chemical and agricultural industries will have serious implications for customers. The coupling of these two chemical giants brought together the third and fourth largest chemical companies in terms of market capitalization, accounting for some 152 billion U.S. dollars in stock value at that time.
