Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Bisphenol-A Market 2016-2020

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global bisphenol-A market: Covestro, The Dow Chemical Company, LG Chem, and Mitsui Chemical.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Kumho P&B Chemicals, Vinmar, Formosa Plastics, and Samyang Innochem.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One of the most important aspects of the integration of the bisphenol-A production chain is the assurance that can be gained by the involvement of upstream chemical companies. Bisphenol-A is a chemical, which is derived from phenol and acetone. Although low down the crude oil value chain, it is not absolutely shielded from the effects of the collapse of crude oil prices.”

According to the report, the sustained demand for polycarbonate plastics will be a key driver for this market. Polycarbonate plastics have excellent properties such as high tensile strength and high thermal stability that make them useful in many applications.

Further, the report states that low oil prices will affect the upstream value chain. Crude oil has historically been one of the most volatile commodities, and the primary reason for this is the complex and interwoven value and supply chains that have been created due to over-dependence of almost all world economies on oil. The recent crash in crude prices saw the price fall from highs of $100 in mid-2014 to approximately $28 in early 2016. It only reinforces the volatility that the crude market is subjected to. This directly affects a lot of products that are derived from it such as gasoline and lubricants.
