World Analysis - Polyester

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

The polyester chain, which supplies polyester fiber and packaging, is one of the more dynamic growth areas in the petrochemical sector. Demand for its products has thrived thanks to an expanding world population, increased wealth and the substitution of traditional packaging and textile materials — all made possible by technological breakthroughs that continue to presage a relatively strong long-term outlook for the industry. Overbuilding and surplus capacity, however, threaten the marginal benefits from this growth in demand, some less competitive production facilities may have to close.

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

Included with the World Analysis - Polyester 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.

  • PET Bottle Resin
