Ethylene and Propylene Outlook for 2016

Volatility was widespread in 2015 as ethylene and propylene markets adjusted to the collapse in crude and regional swings in supply. Prices in Asia and Europe for both monomers swung $500-600/t. Both regions turned to the US for incremental supply. What can we expect for 2016?

Listen as Mike Smith, VP Light Olefins and Derivatives addresses key issues that will affect the ethylene and propylene markets in 2016 including:

  • Capacity is being added and how will it be absorbed?
  • Will trade revert to historical patterns?
  • How are US projects progressing?
