Electric Avenue: Getting Wider Every Day, But Not Enough Alone to Grant Success To All Inputs

  • The thirst for EVs is growing – in part because of incentives and in part because of a wave of new vehicle availability, which will only accelerate from 2021.  EVs are good for lightweight products – aluminum and plastics – to offset battery weight.
  • But it is a case of “chips with everything” and the EV makers are as much at risk from the semiconductor shortages as the traditional industry.  Recent estimates suggest that 2021 global auto production could be held back by as much as 10%.
  • The real loser is likely butadiene, as incentives to produce are high, while demand is likely to be held back by lower vehicle new builds as well as the lingering impact of COVID, vehicle miles traveled, and more limited tire wear and tear.

Last week we discussed 30 chemicals and related products and 178 Companies.
