Taking Stock: Rethinking “Just in Time” is Adding to Demand

  • A coordinated global manufacturing shift of sentiment towards supply chain security is working in favor of a stronger-for-longer demand uplift in 2021.
  • The product tightness and price inflation to date could last and, in some cases, accelerate in pockets of chemical supply chains before a “new” normal is reached.
  • Shipping companies are stoking the fire, suggesting constraints for the year, and spurring freight rate inflation – container and rail car shortages could persist.
  • Higher carbon prices in Europe are driving investment decisions – no carbon pricing in the US is driving lots of talk but limited action. 

Last week we discussed 30 Chemicals and other materials and 110 Companies.
