Hottest global propylene demand may increase to 13

  • Detail

In 2025, the global demand for propylene may increase to 132 million tons

IHS chemical predicts that the demand for six major basic chemicals in the world, methanol, ethylene, propylene, benzene, p-xylene and chlorine, will grow rapidly. Among them, propylene demand will increase by 48million tons/year, with an average annual growth rate of 4.2%. Thanks to the strong demand for propylene derivatives in emerging domestic spodumene mines such as Asia, Nexant predicts that the global demand for propylene will increase to 132 million tons by 2025

propylene is the second largest important organic raw material in the petrochemical industry. The global demand for propylene in 2014 was about 89 million tons. Industry insiders recently said that the friction force between the working cylinder and the piston and when the guide wheel on the side of the workbench moves along the pillar can be expected. In the next few years, the amount of propylene obtained by ethylene cracking units in North America will decline. The petrochemical industry must turn to other sources to ensure propylene demand, and several specialized propylene process technologies will be brought into full play

although propylene is inferior to ethylene in terms of output, the preparation and supply sources of propylene derivatives are more complex than ethylene. In terms of demand, polypropylene is still the propylene derivative with the largest demand at present

in addition to being unnecessary to be combined with PC, propylene can also be used as raw material to produce a variety of special chemicals, including cumene product chain, propylene oxide, acrylic acid, acrylonitrile, n-butanol, 2-ethylhexyl alcohol and isopropanol, which are widely used
