Imports into the structurally short US benzene market fell about 18% year-on-year in 2016 compared with 2015, as downstream issues in derivatives such as styrene weighed on demand. Meanwhile, benzene prices rose late in 2016 on a rally in upstream crude oil as well as several issues at refineries on the Gulf Coast.
On the demand side, China's appetite for benzene ahead of its Lunar New Year holiday spurred price increases and US exports to China in December. The US benzene market is structurally short and relies on imports to meet about 20% of consumption. South Korea, Venezuela, Saudi Arabia and Brazil continue to be key suppliers to the US market. Explore these trends in our benzene infographic.
The US Polyolefin market is in a unique position with PE and PP moving in polar opposite directions. There is an abundant supply of PE with more coming on line every year, while PP is tight with demand growing 5.5% (since 2013) and no significant increase in supply until 2020. This significantly impacts the strategy for both sellers and buyers.
This significantly impacts the strategy for both sellers and buyers. Learn more in this special ICIS report produced by ICIS senior consultant James Ray and ICIS senior petrochemicals analyst Stephanie Kirby.
The shale boom continues to fuel the boom in ethylene production in the US and has spurred growth in ethylene exports while virtually pushing out all ethylene imports. Exports to key destinations such as China and India grew in 2016 from 2015 amid a more than 13% increase in overall US ethylene exports in 2016 from the year before. Explore these trends in our ethylene infographic.
