SE Asian Polyolefins Market and Polyolefin Resins Industry Analysis

These reports provide in-depth analysis of the Southeast Asian polyolefins industry, highlighting major features of the market as well as an overview of the global market for polyolefin resins in value terms for each material and/or volume terms, with a focus on Asia (except China).

DALLAS, April 16, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- "The Southeast Asian Polyolefins Industry – Set to Emerge as a Key Market with Growing Demand and Capacity Additions" and "Global Markets for Polyolefin Resins -- Focus on Asia (except China)" research reports now available with


China's appetite for polyeolefins just keeps growing, and Thailand and Singapore are set to profit handsomely from their exports, according to a new report @  The research states that exports from Southeast Asian countries to China have increased threefold in the last decade, and anticipates that trade agreements present within Asia will promote further growth in plastics business.

A large portion of polyolefins produced in Southeast Asia is exported to the Chinese market, which is the largest importer and consumer of polyolefins in the world. China's demand for polyolefins is expected to grow from 31.45 MMtpa in 2011 to 41.13 MMtpa by 2016 at a CAGR of 5.5%. The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) places neighboring countries in an ideal position to trade among one another, as the ASEAN Free Trade Agreement (AFTA) allows trade between member countries with zero import duty. Singapore and Thailand are members of ASEAN, and China has entered into a China-ASEAN Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA) with a corresponding zero import duty regime, allowing these countries to conduct more economical trade.

Thailand is the biggest exporter of polyolefins to China, and also boasts the largest consumption and production of polyethylene and polypropylene in the Southeast Asian polyolefin industry. Large natural gas reserves in the Gulf of Thailand provide abundant feedstock, and the location of polyolefin plants in Rayong in the eastern seaboard provides close proximity to sea routes for transportation.

Closely following Thailand's industry prowess, Singapore is gradually making its presence felt as a petrochemicals exporter. Singapore does not have a huge demand for polyolefins, but has become a major polyolefins exporter to other Asian countries, attracting exporting companies due to the nation's ideal location and robust infrastructure for petrochemical exports. The country also acts as a global trans-shipment hub for Middle Eastern imports into Asia, making use of AFTA's zero import duties.

Other Asian countries import their polymers too, giving Thailand and Singapore extra business. Indonesia is the second largest consumer of polyolefin resins in Southeast Asia, but depends on imports due to insufficient growth of domestic production capacity. Vietnam also lacks the production infrastructure to satisfy domestic demand for polyolefins, which has been growing continuously by more than 15% per annum over the last decade.

Polyethylene demand in Southeast Asia is expected to increase from 4.89 MMtpa in 2011 to 6.17 MMtpa by 2016, while production is expected to increase from 6.28 MMtpa to 9.29 MMtpa during the same period. Demand for polypropylene in the region is expected to increase from 3.63 MMtpa in 2011 to 4.67 MMtpa in 2016, and production is expected to improve substantially from.

Another report "Global Markets for Polyolefin Resins -- Focus on Asia (except China)" helps its readers form a comprehensive understanding of the recent advances and trends in polyolefins manufacturing, applications, technologies, and global and regional markets. This research provides in-depth analysis for the polyolefin resins market, including polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP) markets. PE includes low density polyethylene (LDPE), linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) and high density polyethylene (HDPE).

This report helps meet four major objectives. Major types of polyolefins and their future demand will be described. Main technologies of polyolefin manufacturing will be discussed. Commercial applications in which polyolefin resins are used will be discussed. Present consumption and future demand for polyolefins will be evaluated for Asian markets, except China.

Trends in technology will be analyzed. The impact of governmental regulations and international agreements will be ascertained. Patents of polyolefins will be discussed. The structural dynamics of the polyolefin industry will be outlined, along with profiles of key manufacturers in the United States, China, Japan, Korea, India, Brazil, France, Germany, Austria, Taiwan, and other countries or regions.

This report available for purchase @ reviews markets for polyolefins and forecasts trends and sales in concerned markets through 2016. Important manufacturers, technologies and factors influencing demand are also discussed.

The polyolefin market is closely relevant to the production and supplies of the olefin industry; therefore, olefin production is also described. Catalysts are important materials for polyolefin production and are discussed too. Comprehensive Table of Contents and more @
