ICIS launch new Supply and Demand database providing a unique insight into energy, refining and petrochemicals sectors

02 March 2015

ICIS has launched a new Supply and Demand database, providing a single, searchable source of historical and forecast data covering global petrochemical and energy markets.

Paul Ray, Head of Consulting & Analytics at ICIS said: 

“This new Supply and Demand database is an invaluable tool designed to help users to make confident, long-term decisions and gain greater insight into global petrochemical and energy markets. We are proud of the fact that we are the only provider to offer a coherent, end-to-end view of oil, through to refining and feedstocks, downstream to petrochemicals derivatives. This online database provides senior management with the data, markets context and expertise to support their research, planning and acquisition strategies.”

Since the economic downturn, the energy, refining and petrochemical sectors have had to make major adjustments and review portfolios. Companies must invest shrewdly, making accurate historical and forecast data essential to support decision making, especially when looking long-term across such volatile markets.

The ICIS Supply and Demand database covers 160 countries and 100 markets, looking back to 1978 and forward up to 2030.


“It enables users to source, interrogate, sort and export data for analysis and modeling, review upstream and downstream business integration, and use this to make informed, strategic decisions,” added Ian Elway, Product Director at ICIS.
