Ethylene is an inflammable colorless gas with a sweet taste and odor. Ethylene is used extensively in industrial applications. Considering the broad range of industrial applications of ethylene, several prominent petrochemical companies across the world engage in the manufacture of ethylene and its diverse types of derivatives. These international petrochemical companies increase their production capacity of ethylene periodically. Moreover, demand for ethylene is expected to augment significantly in different end-use industries. This is ultimately leading to sustainable growth in the ethylene market.

Rosneft Oil Company, Royal Dutch Shell Plc and China Petroleum & Chemical Corporation are the top three companies by capacity additions expected to come on-stream by 2019.

Global Ethylene industry is expected to spend around US$45.1 billion by 2020 for the upcoming projects. Russia, US and China are the top three countries by capital expenditure for projects by 2020.
