Updated to Q4 2017
Supply rose due to a healthy corn crop harvest and new plant startups in the Midwestern US. According to US government statistics, weekly fuel ethanol production continued to increase through the fourth quarter, gaining around 20,000 bbl/day to 1.05m bbl/day by the end of 2017. At the end of 2016, the US produced just under 1.00m bbl/day.
Finished motor gasoline demand stood at 9.485m bbl/day at the end of December 2017, a 200,000 bbl/day increase from the same timeframe in 2016. However, cumulative daily demand from the start of 2017 through the year’s end is about 80,000 bbl/day. Ethanol represents roughly 10% of the nation’s finished gasoline fuel supply.
The US Ethanol report offers an assessment of fuel spot prices and contract prices for the industrial ethanol market.
It provides weekly prices for gasoline, natural gases and corn as they can all affect the price of ethanol.
Weekly production and inventory data are also included.
The US ethanol report can be a great tool for companies using ethanol in the chemical application market.
ICIS is one of the few, if not the only company, providing a monthly assessment of industrial ethanol contracts in the US.
We assess spot prices of fuel ethanol with four different US regions, and that can benefit brokers and traders as it provides a concise overview of the US market from coast to coast.
