Global Ethylene Competitiveness Report
Jacobs Consultancy’s Global Ethylene Competitiveness Report is the first monthly subscription publication to address the full supply chain costs for global polyethylene (PE) and methyl ethyl glycol (MEG) production chains. The report addresses the integrated economics, from feedstock hydrocarbon through to linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) and MEG on a CFR China and Western Europe delivered basis. The economic analysis is derived from the deep, liquid hydrocarbon feedstock markets. Margins are similarly derived from butene LLDPE prices and spot MEG pricing in Asia and Western Europe.
The report provides ongoing intelligence on leader-integrated producer plants in the U.S. Gulf Coast (ethane/propane and natural gasoline), Saudi Arabia (ethane and propane), Western Canada, South Korea, Western Europe (inland and coastal), and China. Full supply chain costs are reported, including plant cash costs (variable and fixed); packaging, freight, and distribution (with regular updates of ocean freight costs); SG&A costs; as well as tariff and technology royalty costs, as appropriate.
