Ethylene forecast

ABOUT OUR METHODOLOGY

Forecast price monitor

The price forecasting methodology allows for three major factors.

1) The cost of feedstocks (naphtha, ethane, coal, etc.), which we index to crude oil  
2) The supply-demand balance, which we make use of our databases to analyse the balance between capacity and consumption, with adjustments for the latest developments
3) The unpredictable factors brought to our attention by our market consultants

With this approach we endeavour to provide our readers with soundly based, currently informed price forecasts.
