Argus Ethylene Annual 2016

Argus's annual petrochemical study analyses the current market and provides a forward looking view at the global ethylene industry. The report examines history and forecast of global trends, analyses capacity changes by producer and provides a demand analysis of all major ethylene derivatives. 


The increasing maturity of its derivatives and little if any expansion into new applications leaves the ethylene market increasingly dependent on world GDP development. The developed world is continuing to struggle to recover from the economic crisis of 2007-09 has been slower than expected, restricting growth in both domestic demand and imports of finished and semi-finished goods.
