With petrochemical feedstocks continuing to shift away from naphtha and C3 volumes diminishing, more and more companies are looking to on purpose production and alternative sources to capitalize on the supply gap.

On top of this, growing derivative demand is creating an enormous market for additional supply, with an estimated additional 18 million metric tonnes of polypropylene capacity required by 2024, further driving the business case for expansion projects.

The global propylene market is estimated to reach $172.05 billion by 2020, but what are the most profitable strategies to capitalize on supply demand dynamics?

  • In depth assessment of forecasted propylene production from traditional crackers, refiners and planned PDH projects must be undertaken on a region by region basis to identify the geographic need for additional capacity, as well as the greatest propane feedstock export opportunities.
  • Propane production and supply infrastructure also requires careful assessment, to provide strategies for securing propane feedstocks and the reveal the long term viability of PDH projects
  • Technology costs and efficiencies must be evaluated to contrast economics and optimize equipment selection, including PDH and MTO
  • Derivative markets must be quantified and pinpointed to target the greatest demand opportunities worldwide, including polypropylene, propylene oxide/glycol, acrylonitrile and more

The 2nd Annual Propane to Propylene Markets Summit, following on from last year's groundbreaking summit, remains the industry's only dedicated C3 value stream forum, identifying the greatest opportunities and investment economics for propane, propylene and its derivatives and providing exclusive insights into these critical issues and more.
