Analyst’s Take on the Market Projection

According to Sachin Singh, Lead Analyst, BIS Research, “Propane dehydrogenation (PDH) is one of the most efficient technologies used in the production of propylene. The increased gap between propylene demand and supply on the back of increased demand for propylene derivatives from the end users and limited production of propylene as a by-product in ethylene production is expected to bolster the demand for PDH to propylene in the long run.  Various PDH to propylene players are expanding their production capacities to cater to the increasing demand from end users and achieve a competitive edge.”
