World Analysis - Propylene

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

The global propylene and derivative markets are in the midst of a major transition with repercussions for both the supply and demand side. The impact of the global shift to lighter feedstocks among steam cracker operators has set in motion developments that affect the type and location of new investment, regional pricing levels and profitability of propylene and derivative producers. The reduction of propylene supplies from steam crackers and refineries together with the resulting higher price levels are supporting investments in on-purpose production, mainly propane-dehydrogenation and in China also coal-based processes. Higher propylene prices are also driving downstream portfolio changes as many large producers increasingly focus on higher value derivatives, particularly in North America and West Europe. Despite some consolidation, polypropylene will remain by far the largest propylene derivative well into the future.

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

Included with the IHS Chemical World Analysis - Propylene 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 tables (including flat file format) and the regional and global supply/demand graphs.
