Free markets are generally very efficient in matching long-term supply to evolving demand, yet benzene is an exception to the rule. Despite being a precursor to many commodity plastics, it's produced mainly as a by-product, creating a disconnect between these market drivers.
As part of our Chemical Markets Service, we leverage our unique view to analyse this complex relationship between supply and demand, including:
- Insights on trends, risks and opportunities
- Direct access to the experts behind the analysis
- Forecasts to 2035
- Asset-level capacity
- Country-level supply/production
- Country-level derivative demand
- Ethylene and its derivatives trades
- Price, cost and margins
