The article focuses on the introduction of prediction markets in the petrochemical industry. Prediction markets are virtual markets where people make bets, or trade, on the outcome of real events. Corporations can use this as a tool that can produce far more accurate forecasts of future events than expert opinions, polls or other research. The RIMDEX market may prove useful in testing the insights in terms of the petrochemicals industry.
