  • Propylene long-term service

Propylene short-term service

Gain an integrated view of global short-term supply and demand, capacities, and pricing with granular analysis and expert insights of chemical markets.

Our propylene short-term service includes a monthly report that includes analysis and forecasting of propylene markets in North America, Europe, and Asia. The analysis takes a view from oil to refining to NGLs and applies them to the propylene value chains for a fully integrated view of the market.

The service analyses prices and iteratively solves the market around constraints on inventories, plant uptime, market trading sentiment, and more in order to predict changes in feedstock choices available to the market. 

Propylene long-term service

Optimise your market position and commercial strategy with an integrated view of long-term market dynamics and strategic insights of global propylene markets.

Our long-term propylene service is updated twice per year with analysis and forecasting of the global propylene market over the next 30 years and a historical view back to 2005. The service leverages an integrated view of energy, NGLs, refined products and other feedstocks through to the propylene derivative value-chains.

The service covers supply, demand, trade and regional price, cost, and margin forecasts for propylene. The underlying analysis incorporates feedstock and technology assessments as part of the global supply/demand balance. Forecast global demand is built up from an in-house economic view and integration into parallel services covering the major propylene derivatives.
