LyondellBasell Poised for Profit Expansion Following Global Demand Slowdown

LyondellBasell is one of the largest petrochemical producers in the world, manufacturing ethylene and propylene and a myriad of chemical derivatives, including propylene oxide, or PO. These products form the building blocks for downstream chemicals and plastics that are used in industrial and consumer markets alike. About 70% of LyondellBasell’s ethylene and polyethylene production capacity sits in North America. Its total ethylene and propylene capacity is fairly evenly split between North American and international markets.

Bulls Say, Bears Say

Bulls

LyondellBasell benefits from its cost-advantaged North American operations that use low-cost natural gas-based feedstock.

Bears

Half of LyondellBasell’s operations are outside of North America and are subject to higher and more volatile costs, which will weigh on profits.
