Ethylene short-term service

Gain an integrated view of global short-term supply and demand, capacities, and pricing with granular analysis and expert insights of chemical markets.

Our short-term service includes a monthly report with analysis and forecasting of global ethylene markets, focusing on developments in North America, Europe, and Asia. Our models are updated monthly producing an interpretive report which quickly summarizes essential market dynamics. Our report uses an integrated view of naphtha, NGLs, and other feedstocks through the ethylene chemical chains.            

In the Americas section, the report iteratively solves the market with an asset optimization model, leveraging research around constraints on inventories, plant uptime, market sentiment, etc. The model predicts changes in feedstock choices available to participants and provides our asset optimization view.                                       

Ethylene long-term service

Optimise your commercial strategy with an integrated view of long-term market dynamics and strategic insights of global chemical markets.

Our long-term ethylene service is updated twice per year with analysis and forecasting of the global ethylene market over the next 20-30 years and a historical view back to 2005. The interpretive report contains an integrated view of NGLs and other feedstocks through the ethylene derivative chains.

This service covers supply, demand, trade, and feedstocks and regional price, cost, and margin forecast for ethylene. The underlying analysis incorporates feedstock prices and iteratively solves the market feedstocks distribution and hypothetical future supply/demand balance. Forecast demand is built on similar products analyzing the derivatives of ethylene.
