Ethane to Polyethylene: Advantage North America

Using our proprietary polyethylene data and insight, the North American ethylene industry has grown by 3 million tons since 2012 and with 10 firm cracker projects currently underway it will expand by a further 10 million tons by 2020 – 28% over the 2016 level.

This imminent Polyethylene (PE) supply explosion is going to have significant fallout in world PE markets, but where exactly? to what extent? and who is affected for better or worse?

With our proprietary polyethylene data, our new study answers these key questions and more:

  • Exactly how competitive is this material on a delivered cash cost basis?
  • How will this outlook change under differing oil and gas price scenarios?
  • How will this outlook change under differing political/trade scenarios?
  • Will the oil/gas price relationship in the 2020s trigger another wave of investment?
