ABSTRACT
The article discusses the highlights of the "IHS Chemical World Analysis - Ethylene 2014" that finds that Mideast petrochemical producers are focusing on heavier feedstocks and higher value-added downstream products due to ethane supply limitations. It notes the contrasting situation in the surging North American petrochemical industry with its abundant shale energy resources. It sees higher growth rates in ethylene demand in the Indian Subcontinent, Southeast Asia, South America and Africa.
