US petrochemical markets have been shaken up by falling crude oil prices, and Platts editors Bernardo Fallas, Christopher Ferrell, and Jeremy Rakes detail the changes in the aromatics and olefins markets. Benzene, toluene and mixed xylenes have seen prices fall to their lowest points in years, but on the olefins side, prices have been impacted by other factors. How are these declines affecting derivatives markets, and is a long-term impact expected?
