On January 31, 2018 at the "ICIS Outlook Seminar in Houston, analysts said that the region's largest plastics manufacturers are searching overseas for new export markets amid a mounting domestic glut,” the Houston Chronicle  reports.

“ICIS anticipates that through 2019, the U.S. will increase its polyethlyene production by 6.5 million tons a year. Through 2022, production could balloon by 12.1 million tons a year, increasing current production levels by nearly 75%.”
