New Supply and Demand Window launches on the ICIS Dashboard for Polyethylene and Polypropylene Europe

ICIS has announced the launch of the Supply and Demand Window on the ICIS Dashboard. The Supply and Demand Window is only available for Polyethylene and Polypropylene Europe and will be extended to other chemical commodities in late April.

Kieran Cosgrove, ICIS Senior Consultant for Global Olefins & Derivatives says “The Supply and Demand Window has been developed to provide users with historical and forecast information to help support future investments in the petrochemical market. This is valuable information for buyers of chemical commodities who often have little information on supply and demand, production capacity and trade flows across the geographic regions. The Supply and Demand Window is unique to the market – there is nothing available at the moment that can break down data in such a discrete and cost-effective way. The information covered is over a 11 year time span, 5 years in the past and, more importantly to those looking ahead, 5 years into the future.”

The Supply and Demand Window will give users access to information on supply and demand, imports and exports and regional production capacity over an 6-11 year time span. It reveals producers’ manufacturing capabilities within and outside geographical regions, and enables buyers to create an informed view of trade patterns to support strategic plans, budgets, forecasts and contract negotiations.

Other chemical commodities will be available on the Supply and Demand Window in late April. For further information please visit
