Markets and Profitability
The Petrochemical Simulator is our proprietary simulation model used to generate all the analysis and forecasts available when subscribing to our Markets and Profitability program.
Our simulation model is an experience-based database running commodity petrochemical business logic algorithms to produce multi-scenario simulations of the global industry. It is integrated from end-use markets back to polymer consumption to intermediates, through monomers to petrochemical feedstocks. The model considers inter-material competition, inter-regional price relationships, chain margins, product substitution, logistic costs and trade drivers. Costs and prices are integrated from crude oil and petrochemical feedstocks through olefins and aromatics to intermediates and polymers.
