Polyethylene global supply demand analytics service - April 2018

Report summary

2018-2020 are the years to watch for global polyethylene markets. Significant capacity expansions in North America is ramping up, with export volumes jostling for position on the global market. We already see some signs of the competition to move LLDPE, and we expect other polyethylene types to follow suit in the near-term. The ability of this capacity to be absorbed will largely determine the global operating rates. China, especially with scrap import ban, will be the key country for the demand growth. Other regions such as Europe, India and South East Asia will also see a changing trade pattern. 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.
