Price Projections - Set in Crude Oil Price Scenarios

Chem-Foresight is a new price forecasting service, covering many of the main chemical raw materials. The starting point is the day-to-day monitoring of chemical markets by Tecnon Orbichem for its monthly reports, taken together with our regularly updated supply-demand databases. The consultants who generate these basic data also provide the final input on the market outlook of the moment. All this information is cross-indexed and correlated in order to synthesize 18-month forward predictions via proprietary algorithms.

A sample of the forecasts, presented in both tables and graphics, is shown on the right. It will be seen that three scenarios are chosen -- Base, Low and High -- according to the future crude oil price or other energy/feedstock cost, so that the user can read off the position according to the latest status of the feedstocks’ price development.

Chem-Foresight can assist you with:

  • Purchasing planning, whether to buy now or await market developments
  • Sales strategy, whether to maximise now or hold back for the upturn to come
  • Production organisation, to optimise the gap between prices versus costs
  • Inventory management, getting the timing right for drawing down or building up
  • Drawing up budgets, for 6 or 12 or 18 months in advance
  • Optimising cash flow, balancing future input costs versus sales return.
