Special Report – North America Propylene Supply Study

Is your propylene supply source secure?

This report will analyze eleven North America propylene trade areas (PTAs) in-depth. For each PTA, IHS will provide:

  • Capacity by propylene grade and technology type
  • Pipeline, rail, terminal capabilities
  • Demand by propylene grade
  • Inter-PTA and off-shore trade flow snapshots
  • Propylene net back prices

This report will answer strategic questions, such as:

  • What is the status of North American PDH projects and how will that impact the regional and global propylene markets?
  • What changes are planned to pipeline infrastructure (new pipeline construction or changing grade service), and how will they affect distribution?
  • What effects will these industry shifts have on the production of propylene derivatives?
  • When, where, and what propylene derivative capacity is forecast to be added, and how will it affect the global propylene derivative markets?

Please contact chemicalspecialreports@ihs.com for more information.

Special Report – Ammonia Value Chain

Abundant supplies of low cost methane in North America, resulting from advances in the development of shale resources directly impacts the global Ammonia and derivatives value chain, with far reaching consequences in the commercial landscape.

High global prices for oil and advancements in fracturing technology have created an environment that fosters North American development of tight oil production and drilling in gas fields rich in natural gas liquids (NGLs). The combination boosts the production of associated natural gas (methane), adding to already abundant supplies of shale gas and shifting the region’s long term natural gas supply and demand balance to a significant overall surplus. The forecasted “long” market for natural gas will result in low prices for North American methane, the critical feedstock for ammonia and its derivatives.

With a strong foundational analysis of North America shale gas and resultant supplies of low cost methane, the report will focus on the global supply-demand and trade flows as well as the regional competitive dynamics of the Ammonia and Urea value chains. The report will provide economic snapshots of 2013 / 2018 / 2023 Ammonia and Urea cash cost and margin in each of the major world regions.

Special Report – Chemical Building Blocks from Renewables

Bio-based chemicals were very much in the spotlight in 2008, when crude oil prices soared and concerns about dwindling natural resources were widespread. The recent surge in shale gas and tight oil production has largely allayed those fears. Now chemical producers and their customers are asking if bio-based chemicals make economic or market sense in a world of abundant fossil fuel feedstocks.
The answer to that question depends on the specific chemical and end-use market. Newly abundant supplies of natural gas liquids have reenergized the ethylene industry. At the same time, supplies of some conventional feedstocks (C3, C4, C5 and pygas, co-products of steam cracking) have tightened as ethylene producers switch to lighter feedstocks. As a result, interest in sugars, glycerin and other plant-derived feedstocks remains strong.
This comprehensive report provides an objective and unbiased view of a wide range of bio-based chemicals and their prospects versus conventional chemicals (chemicals derived from natural gas, crude oil or coal). The emphasis is on near-commercial and commercial products, and will be of interest to strategic planners, market researchers, and business development managers in petrochemical companies, agribusinesses, biotech firms, consumer packaged goods companies, beverage and food companies, financial analysts, investment banks, and equity investors.

Special Report – The Effect of Shale Based Feedstocks on the Global Petrochemical Industry

Advances in the development of shale resources have brought about a new era of hydrocarbon production, impacting not only the global energy markets, but also every related industry, including chemicals.
As a result, oil production in North America is increasing dramatically, and the region’s natural gas supply and demand balance has shifted to a surplus. The combination of high global prices for oil and low prices for North American natural gas has created an environment that fosters the development of gas plays rich in natural gas liquids (NGLs). Shale resource development is also providing abundant supplies of NGLs.
The study will focus on the regional supply, demand, trade and pricing dynamics of the following basic chemical value chains: methanol, caustic, chlorine, ethylene, propylene, and butadiene.
