United States Petrochemicals Q1 2018

United States Petrochemicals Q1 2018

With the effects from hurricanes well behind the US chemical industry, production is rising and capacity isincreasing with new plants coming onstream. Production rebounded at a time when the first wave of thenew US crackers and downstream projects was starting up. Capex is set to remain high with a 'second wave'of ethylene expansion set to add 8.7mn tpa of capacity after 2018. US petrochemicals volumes are set to riseby over 6% annually in 2018-2020, a growth rate that is many times greater than overall economic growth.

Much of the increase will be devoted to exports, competing with new crackers in the Middle East and Asia,and as such will require shale gas-derived ethane feedstock to remain competitive.
