Market Description

Ethylene capacity stood at ~170 MMT in 2018. During the last five years, ~22 MMT of new capacity additions took place in the ethylene market. The major capacity additions recorded in the US market.  By 2022, another 20-30 MMT capacity additions are expected in the market at a growth rate of 3-5 percent. Polyethylene is the major market driver for the ethylene market with ~60 percent market share, followed by ethylene oxide (14%) and PVC (11%). Polyethylene is expected to grow at 3-4 percent in the next years. Currently, naphtha and ethane are majorly used feedstock for producing ethylene. Ethane-based production has higher margins, hence suppliers in the US and the Middle East are profited when compared with other regions. Due to expected firm crude oil prices suppliers in Europe and Asia look for imported ethane-based cracking which is cost competitive when compared with naphtha-based crackers.
