Benefit from an independent benzene market outlook

The global benzene and styrene industries have become more vulnerable to unexpected production issues, resulting in greater price volatility. This may damage long-term derivative demand growth as customers are pressed to switch to polymers with more stable prices.

Drawing upon market-leading analysis of the oil, gasoline and naphtha markets that impact production, our service is the industry's only integrated offering that provides in-depth data, analysis and production costs associated with global supply and demand.
