Ethylene oxide Overview Transcript

The European ethylene oxide market is mainly contract driven, it typically moves in line with 82% of the ethylene feedstock movement. The main market drivers are both feedstock based, and to a lesser extent supply and demand driven.

The main downstream sectors include downstream applications, surfactants and also seasonal business, which is anti-freeze and also in the summer season, the bottle sector.

The overall pricing trend has been increasing and firm, and this has been due to a number of plant maintenances, and robust demand particularly in the downstream surfactants sector.

The future outlook for the market all depends on the trade flow of imports for both Asia and the Middle East. This is for both ethylene and its derivatives and how well this is efficiently managed in Europe.
