Global polyethylene long-term outlook November 2017

Report summary

2018 is the year to watch for global polyethylene markets. Significant capacity expansions in North America will ramp up, with export volumes jostling for position on the global market. The ability of this capacity to be absorbed will largely determine global operating rates. Asia, led by China, is key for demand growth, but other regions will play their part.  Crude oil and natural gas prices will be carefully watched for their impact prices and margins. This report explores all these dynamics in detail. Comprehensive data sets and interactive dashboards on capacity and projects; supply and demand; prices, costs and margins; and trade are available to download.
