Ethylene – A Global Market Report

http://www.reportlinker.com/p0164406/Ethylene—A-Global-Market-Report.html#utm_source=prnewswire&utm_medium=pr&utm_campaign=prnewswire

Ethylene (C2H4), a light gas with a characteristic sweet smell belongs to the olefins family of petrochemicals or aliphatics, which are straight chain hydrocarbons, derived from petroleum or natural gas. Other major products belonging to this family are propylene and butadiene. Ethylene is one of the largest volume commodity chemicals consumed mostly as a raw material in the manufacture of plastics, fibers and other organic chemicals. Ethylene constitutes the fundamental building unit of worldwide petrochemical industry with ubiquitous applications in a spectrum of end use areas. The primary derivatives of this upstream petrochemical include polyethylene (PE), polyvinyl chloride (PVC), polyethylene terephthalate (PET), polystyrene (PS) and a broad range of other products.

These and other market data and trends are presented in “Ethylene: A Global Market Report” by BizAcumen, Inc. Our reports are designed to be most comprehensive in geographic coverage and vertical market analyses.
