Low oil prices a boon for chemical industry, says analyst

ACC SmartBrief | Jan 20, 2015

The declining price of oil will benefit the chemical industry in 2015, according to Jeremy Redenius, a senior analyst at Bernstein Research. The lower price is due to oversupply, not weakened demand, he said. "Thus chemicals industry volumes will not be as negatively impacted as investors worry but, on the contrary, may outpace global real GDP growth of about 3.0% in 2015. Moreover, lower oil prices will reduce the industry's input costs." Chemical Week (01/19)
