World Analysis - ABS

IHS Chemical World Analysis - ABS is an annual study that covers historical trends and forecasts for ABS supply/demand fundamentals over a 16-year period (five-year history, base year, ten-year forecast). Clients receive detailed data on ABS and major derivatives in 10 geographic regions with ten-year market forecasts.

ABS demand grew rapidly with the strong Asian appliance sector motivating a flurry of new plant investment. However, the new plants are coming on stream in a period of lackluster demand following the economic stagnation due to austerity programs in Europe and weaker demand for finished goods exports in Asia. The World Analysis - ABS examines the effects of the growing oversupply of ABS in world markets.

IHS Chemical World Analysis – ABS examines historical trends and long term projections for supply/demand, production, capacity, and trade of the global ABS industry over a 16-year period (five-year history, base year, ten-year forecast).

Included with the IHS Chemical World Analysis - ABS 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.
