Benzene mid-year trade flow review - infographic

Benzene mid-year trade flow review - infographic

EU benzene imports continued the growth trend of recent years and were up again in H1 2016 compared to the same period last year, with strong prices earlier in 2016 helping pull volumes from other regions. More capacity coming online in Saudi Arabia and India should also see additional volumes making their way into the EU by 2017. Meanwhile, EU benzene exports saw a considerable drop in H1 2016 compared to the previous year, with reduced extraction capacity in Europe and the firmer domestic prices limiting opportunities to move material out of the region.

Styrene mid-year trade flow review - infographic

Styrene mid-year trade flow review - infographic

While the US remains the key source of styrene  imports arriving into the EU, H1 2016 saw an overall drop in volumes  moving into the region despite some planned production closures. The  restart of the 550,000 tonne/year ELLBA unit at Moerdijk in January 2016  helped rebalance some of the tightness in Europe, and a stronger Asian  market earlier in 2016 also diverted US material away from Europe. This  also led to more styrene exports leaving the EU in H1 2016, with the  opening of the eastbound arbitrage window.

Butadiene mid-year trade flow review infographic

Butadiene mid-year trade flow review infographic

Europe strengthened its position as a net exporter in 2015 due to new butadiene (BD) capacities, but global trading conditions were subdued. This year, healthier demand has returned, allowing the full impact of capacity increases to be seen across Mexico, the US and South Korea.

To give you the complete picture, ICIS has created a mid-year trade flow infographic, highlighting import and export volumes and destinations using data from Eurostat.

Ethylene mid-year trade flow review infographic

Ethylene mid-year trade flow review infographic

Europe’s ethylene landscape has been more fluid and dynamic over the past two years than ever before. The advent of low oil prices in Q4 2014 led to record cracker margins, strong demand, and increased operating rates, which in turn was considered a factor in the unprecedented number of production problems in 2015.

This mid-year trade flow review infographic using data from Eurostat demonstrates how Europe has managed the rollercoaster environment.

Ethylene glycol mid-year trade flow review infographic

Ethylene glycol mid-year trade flow review infographic

This summer saw bearish market conditions for ethylene glycol (EG), as high import levels and the subsequent excess spot availability placed downward pressure on prices. Conditions improved in September, but recent developments may affect 2017 negotiations as they get underway on the sidelines of EPCA. 

In light of this market uncertainty, ICIS has created a mid-year trade flow infographic, highlighting import and export volumes and destinations using data from Eurostat.
