"We experienced a solid second quarter, in fact it was one of the best we’ve ever had," said Peter Huntsman, the company’s president and CEO.

He added that the strong demand for many of the company’s products, which are used by a wide range of industries globally, suggest that the world’s economies may not be in as dire straights as economic data suggest.

Huntsman’s second-quarter performance was led by the company’s polyurethanes segment, which saw its revenue increase 12 percent, to $1.27 billion, compared with $1.13 billion in the same quarter a year earlier. Polyurethanes are chemicals used in the production of foams, insulation and adhesives.

For the first six months of its 2012 fiscal year, Huntsman saw its revenue increase to $5.8 billion from $5.6 billion a year earlier.

Net income attributed to Huntsman Corp. for the six-month period reached $287 million, or $1.21 cents per share, compared with $176 million, or 74 cents per share, recorded for the first half of 2011.
