Other Developments

In a study for a trade association, Probe recently applied its proprietary methodology for allocating specific types of economic activity to the States and the 435 U.S. Congressional Districts. The results show State governments, as wells as Congressmen and Senators, how their jursdictions are benefitting from the activities of your industry.

Probe has updated its model and database to track goods, such as chemicals, polymers and forest products, that are contained in the exports and imports of other goods, such as automobiles and apparel. This analysis will help you understand offshoring vs. reshoring, as well as the hidden foreign trade impacts on your business. The resin-oriented studies show the real U.S. trade balance in HDPE, LLDPE, polystyrene, polypropylene, PVC, ABS/SAN, polycarbonate and epoxies. Extensive databases are included.

Probe has updated its annual forecasts of costs, prices and margins: Feedstock, Petrochemical and Polymer Cost, Price and Margin Forecasts through 2030.

Fred Peterson, Probe's President, will be a keynote speaker at the Vinyl India 2016 PVC and Chlor-Alkali Summit in Mumbai, April 21-22.
