The Asia and Middle-East countries are enjoying the booming industries that propel the world ethylene oxide market. These developing markets are forecast to witness 5-6% ethylene oxide activity growth pulled by a large number of new projects and brand-new facilities.

Opposite to the market landscape in the East, Europe is said to undergo a period of ethylene oxide market tightness due to a whole row of closures. Apart from that the demand is also at low ebb. The key ethylene oxide producers in the West are losing the competition to the Asian manufacture tycoons.

Insightful review of the ethylene oxide market is featured in the new market research study “Ethylene Oxide (EO): 2012 World Market Outlook and Forecast up to 2017”. The study offers a close-up examination of the market from the global, regional and country-wise perspective and contains data showing the market situation in the past, at present and in future.

The study covers detailed market information on ethylene oxide production and consumption volumes, the trade dynamics and data on the prices in various periods. Key market participants are profiled and the competitive structure is analysed. Market forecasts through 2017 offer knowledge of the market projected developments and trends, volumes and prices.
