IHS Chemical World Analysis - Butadiene
IHS Chemical World Analysis - Butadiene is an annual study that covers historical trends and forecasts for butadiene supply/demand fundamentals over a 16-year period (five-year history, base year, ten-year forecast). Clients receive detailed data on butadiene and major derivatives in 10 geographic regions with ten-year market forecasts.
Global butadiene demand has been significantly restricted by the global recession in recent years. However, it is recovering as economic growth, primarily in the developed world, begins to show signs of returning to normal rates. As demand recovers, the issue for the global butadiene markets will be supply shortages. The increase of ethane based ethylene production in North America and the Middle East will cause butadiene feedstock to grow at a slower rate than demand. Novel butadiene supply sources including dehydrogenation and bio-based production will emerge over the next 10 years. These new supply sources will drive changes in traditional trade patterns and price relationships.
IHS Chemical World Analysis - Butadiene examines historical trends and long term projections for supply/demand, production, capacity, and trade of the global butadiene industry over a 16-year period (five-year history, base year, ten-year forecast).
Included with the IHS Chemical World Analysis - Butadiene is 12-month’s access to IHS Chemical’s online capacity and supply/demand databases, with updates to the capacity database as they occur and one update to the supply/demand database. The study’s conclusions, with text and graphs, are provided online; as are the Excel files for the supply/demand flat file and the regional supply/demand graphs.
