For clear insight into regional Glycerine markets, you need in-depth price reports direct from those regions. ICIS is the only global pricing agency to provide a dedicated glycerine report on Latin America.
With a local editor in Colombia, in addition to our network of price reporters, you will receive direct and regular insights into the local and export markets, providing not just price assessments but market commentary and analysis.
Latin America is a net exporter of Glycerine and exports to the other key regions around the world – Asia, Europe, and the US. Worldwide consumption of glycerine is expected to grow for the coming years, and by 2017 manufacturing value is expected to reach $13.5 billion.
Latin America is in a great position to see expansion and growth on both sides of the market. Governments within the region have set up regulations that will support the production of oleochemicals (including glycerine).
On the demand side, a key driver is the growth of the region’s middle class. Latin America is expected to have the highest compounded annual growth rate within the glycerine market, 6.75% increase in consumption, through 2017.
Our locally based expert reports on prices and the factors driving prices in Latin America, generating a depth of insight that is only possible by developing contacts and building local knowledge. This local market insight, combined with our expertise in price reporting, enables us to produce independent and unbiased price assessments, relied upon by key market makers for their decision making.
