China Olefins Annual Studies

Comprehensive analysis and forecasting for China’s olefins and coal-to-olefins markets

Traditionally, China has been heavily reliant on olefins imports. However, with the rapid development of the coal-to-olefins (CTO) industry, the country is now slowly able to produce its own supply. Indeed, the country’s unique CTO production has altered the competitive landscape and international market players now require up-to-date and accurate market data and insight.

ICIS offers two detailed reports that can support and validate your business development strategies.

Both studies are compiled by ICIS olefins local experts and include the expertise of a global analytical team based in key hubs in the US, Singapore and Europe. This ensures the information available in the report gives you a holistic view of what’s happening in the Chinese olefins market, but more importantly how it impacts global markets.
