Report summary

The announcement of a styrene capacity expansion by Innova was the first in quite a while in the Western Hemisphere, and has caught the attention of the industry as a result. Taken in isolation, this investment might cause concern for its backers, given cost disadvantages in Brazil and lengthening balances globally; however, in the wider context of Innova's portfolio, this fits well in a broader corporate strategy. This insight covers background around the Brazilian styrene industry and Innova's place within it, both before and after this investment.
