Methanol & Acetyls
IHS Chemical provide three product-specific market advisory services dedicated respectively to the global methanol, acetone and acetyls markets. Depending on the service, clients recieve a balance of weekly and/or monthly reports containing near-term market pricing and other critical data to make sound business decisions under rapidly changing conditions.
The global methanol, acetone and acetyls industries are evolving at a vigorous pace. Methanol-to-olefins (MTO) and methanol-to-propylene (MTP) production are fast-growing sectors whose market implications are not yet fully realized. Acetone, a co-product of phenol, is subject to the market drivers for phenol and shifting pricing trends for propylene. The acetyls industry is emerging from the global economic recession that began in 2008, with greatly increased activity, particularly in emerging market economies.
In light of these fast-paced developments, stakeholders need access to unbiased supply and demand scenarios and accurate price forecasts. IHS Chemical devotes a team of highly experienced industry specialists around the globe to following world markets for methanol, acetone, acetic acid and vinyl acetate monomer. Through continual, personal contacts with key industry sources, our experts gather and analyze the salient data, which they then translate into valuable insights and forecasting advice. Our clients save time and resources to devote to making critical business decisions.
