Tecnon OrbiChem's Chem-Foresight provides price forecasts for chemical products by quarter over the next 18 months, for the USA, Europe and Asia (usually East Asia). Forecasts are provided both as tables and graphics, for three crude oil scenarios, low, base case and high, with a short commentary on the supply-demand situation.

These short-term price forecasts for individual chemicals include: 

  • Oil price forecasts
  • Snapshot market commentary
  • Regional chemical price forecasts
  • Charts

ABOUT OUR METHODOLOGY

Chem-Foresight_Image 1 (1)-1

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, for 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.
