WEBINAR - Changing fortunes in the oxo-alcohols industry

Changing fortunes in the oxo-alcohols industry

Note, this Webinar was held on Tuesday 19th January - if you missed it Contact Us for further information.

2020 has seen a reversal in the fortunes of most players in the oxo alcohol industry. Containment measures implemented during the first half of the year caused disruption to supply and a sharp drop in demand during Q2 as construction and automotive output fell as well as consumer spending due to lockdown measures. Q3 has seen strong recovery in demand in many sectors of the industry but question marks over demand growth and oversupply remain for Q4 and as we look into 2021.

This webinar looks at the oxo alcohol industry in 2020 and gives NexantECA's outlook on supply and demand for 2-ethylhexanol, n-butanol and isobutanol.
