Summary of Our Early Findings Relevant to The Goals

  • The preliminary research indicated that there is no publicly available data regarding the market share of the top players. However, this information could be calculated by dividing the company's revenue from their Phosgene business by the market size of the Phosgene market.
  • Our initial hour of the research didn't cover every part of the requested information, so we haven't confirmed yet if we can find all the requested data. However, our initial search indicated that the top players could be privately-held. Thus, they are under no obligation to share their financial data, such as revenue from their Phosgene business.
  • Our recommendations are based on our findings in early research.
