Dublin, Aug. 05, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Petrochemical Industry in the United States - Forecast and Analysis 2021" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The petrochemical industry in the US has been facing pressure from multiple fronts as the COVID-19 pandemic, and low energy prices have driven down demand.

Nevertheless, the third quarter of 2021 witnessed better market performance as the US maintained its leading position in global petrochemical capacity and welcomed a better economic scenario. With somewhat of a recovery in demand and stable output, the US petrochemical industry is looking at better numbers in the second half of 2021. However, they are still short of pre-pandemic performance.

Having an extensive and integrated petrochemical industry, the US has a vast resource base, and the US petrochemical sector has a high level of competitiveness on the global stage. The US is also home to many industry leaders like Dow, CPChem, Eastman Chemical, Exxon, etc.

US petrochemical companies have improved light cracking capabilities in their plants and have also increased production from feedstocks. Strong capacity growth post-COVID era has boosted the potential of the industry for low operating rates.

The report covers the following data:

  • An in-depth coverage of the petrochemical industry in the US by sectors along with an analysis of how the COVID-19 pandemic is effecting the industry.

  • Within the US petrochemical industry, we analyze the market for aromatics, ethylene, polyethylene, methanol, monoethylene glycol (MEG), MTBE, paraxylene, PET, propylene, polypropylene, PVC, toluene, TDP, styrene, butadiene, and many other chemicals.
