Published: Jan-2010 | Format: PDF | GBI Research | Number of pages: 75 | Code: MRS - 1342

GBI Research, the leading business intelligence provider, has released its latest research “The Future of the Light Olefins Markets to 2020”. The study, which is an offering from the company’s Chemicals Research Group, provides an in-depth analysis of the global light olefins industry. The research presents detailed analysis and forecasts of the major economic and market trends affecting the light olefins markets in all the major regions of the world. The report includes demand and production forecasts in key countries, major end-use sectors and regional price analysis. Market share analysis of major light olefins producers by region is also included in this comprehensive report covering all the major parameters. The report is built using the data and information sourced from proprietary databases, primary and secondary research and in house analysis by GBI Research’s team of industry experts.

The global light olefins market will be mainly driven by demand from developing economies of China, India and Brazil. Low per capita consumption and high demand from developing countries will drive the global light olefins demand. Historically, North America was the largest market for light olefins, but it has been overtaken by the Asia Pacific region which currently accounts for around 34% of the global light olefins demand. During the same period, the demand from traditionally large markets of the US, Western Europe and Japan have either remained stagnant or have declined.

Global light olefins market size in 2008 was 178.61 million tons and is expected to reach 267.92 million tons in 2020. The global light olefins market in 2008 was dominated by the Asia Pacific region, followed by North America and Europe. In the Asia Pacific region, China accounts for 36% of the region’s demand and is the second largest producer of light olefins in the world. The light olefins market in North America and Europe is consolidated and in Asia Pacific it is highly fragmented.
