Polyethylene global supply demand analytics service - October 2018

Report summary

The year 2018 witnessed the beginning of the changing polyethylene demand and trade structure as regulations are starting to play an essential role in the demand growth.In the next few years, we expect LLDPE operating rates to recover by around 2% as the pace of additional capacity slows down. We will see more polyethylene plants starting up to service the HDPE markets in North American and China. The margins offered to polyethylene will largely depend on crude oil, ethane and LPG prices. This report explores near term, medium-term and longer term supply, demand, trade, price, costs and margin 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.
