This techno-economic report reviews the chemistry, properties, technology, and development trends of phenol, cumene, and acetone. The report provides phenol economics for conventional and Mitsui processes for several different global locations (USGC, Western Europe, China, Japan, and Southeast Asia) under a consistent first quarter 2020 price scenario. Economics for the alternative production of phenol via the hydroalkylation of benzene are also provided. Regional market analyses for cumene, phenol, and acetone are also included.

This report comments on the motivations behind the recent maleic anhydride (MAN) capacity additions and provides a high-level analysis of the business and strategic considerations as well as the technology availability from the perspective of a company entering or expanding into this market. As over 70 percent of the global capacity and all the announced capacity additions are/will be based on the n-butane route, the cost of production via this route for plants located in the United States, Western Europe, the Middle East, and China has been estimated for the first quarter of 2020. This analysis is underpinned by a review of end-use sector consumption as well as regional market dynamics.
This report provides analysis and forecast to 2035 of supply and demand of the global ethanolamines market. This report includes discussion regarding key market drivers and constraints, as well as supply, demand and trade analysis for nine regions: North America, South America, Western Europe, Central Europe, Eastern Europe, Middle East, Africa, Asia Pacific, and China. Analysis also includes the competitive landscape, capacity listing and cost competitiveness along with a snapshot of latest pricing trends by region and price forecasts to 2035.
Analysis and forecast to 2045 of supply and demand of the global propylene, cumene, phenol, acetone, BPA and polycarbonates market. This analysis identifies the issues shaping the industry as well as provide demand, supply and net trade data for 40 countries.
Carbon black production technologies, feedstock and process economics are discussed and evaluated. Detailed process economics for a selection of commercial ASTM N carbon black grades and specialty blacks such as acetylene and thermal blacks are provided. An overview of global and regional supply and demand of carbon black, as well as market applications by product grade is also included.
This report discusses the process technologies and production economics for purified terephthalic acid (PTA) which is commercially produced by the oxidation of para-xylene with air followed by purification and recovery/recycle of catalysts and solvents. Production economics for the United States, Middle East, and China are assessed and regional market analyses are also presented.
Quarterly Business Analysis: Global - Petrochemicals, Polymers, C1 Chemicals and Fertilizers - Q2 2020
Analysis of the profitability of the petrochemical and polymers industry in Asia Pacific, Western Europe and the United States for the second quarter of 2020.
Analysis of the profitability of the Petrochemicals and Polymers in the Middle East for the second quarter of 2020.
PBT, a commercially important engineering polymer, is commonly made by the direct esterification of purified terephthalic acid (PTA) with 1,4 butanediol (BDO), followed by polycondensation. This report includes an analysis of PBTs markets, end-uses, and production technologies. Production economics were prepared for world-scale continuous and batch production plants using composite PBT technologies; both routes from DMT and PTA were modelled. The analysis was prepared for plants located in the U. S. Gulf Coast, Western Europe, and Coastal China.
Thermoplastic polyolefin elastomers were developed over the past few decades as a means to bridge the gap between rubber and plastics using olefinic feedstocks. Covered in this report are in-situ TPOs, compounded TPOs, TPVs, Polyolefin Elastomers and Plastomers, and Olefin Block Copolymers.
