Why buy this report?

Our Olefins: Coal and methanol-based olefins China study answers these questions by delving into the intricate details of China’s coal and methanol-based olefins (CTO/MTO) initiative and its effects on the global market. The olefins study also explores China’s government policy, how the 13thFYP (five-year plan) will potentially guide further development, and how issues around environmental and water resources will impact this emerging force.

The study includes:

  • Dynamic supply/demand balances for coal, ethylene and propylene from 2010 to 2025
  • CTO/MTO overview
  • Detailed probe into the government policy and environmental/water issues
  • Economic competitiveness comparison

China has historically seen rapid rises in both ethylene supply and demand growth. Its supply has been dominated by steam crackers, which accounted for 98% of total supply in 2010. Demand growth was robust at 7% between 2010 and 2016, and it’s developing much faster than supply. To meet the increasing demand, China still needs other sources, such as coal- and methanol-based olefins (CTO/MTO). This method uses China’s abundant coal reserves and domestic and imported methanol resources, and it reduces China’s dependency on imports of olefins and derivatives.
