Polyethylene markets in Europe

Polyethylene markets in Europe

Published: October 2018

Overview:
Building on its many years experience and six previous editions of this report which was first published in 1989, AMI has launched a new edition of its survey of polyethylene markets in Europe, providing its usual high level of in-depth analysis and prospects for the whole European market for 2017 and the outlook to 2022.

The need for this study is highlighted by the significant challenges currently faced by the polyethylene supply industry. Not only is underlying economic growth slowing, but the pressures of the circular economy will significantly impact all end use application markets. Indeed, it will change the whole way the market works and the offerings from suppliers. Not only this but the competitive dynamic between ethylene based polymers and other resins are at a greater intensity than any time in the past. Supply options are changing as older plants are retired and a wave of new capacity in North America will start to impact the market. Successful strategies will only come from a complete understanding of these trends and the influence they will have on customer behaviour.
