Exxon Mobil's Quiet Growth Business With Massive Potential In An Inflationary Environment
Aug. 10, 2020 7:50 AM ET

Exxon's Chemical segment has made up as much as 58.9% of net income during times of lower WTI prices.

Inside of its Chemical business, Exxon is a clear leader in polyethylene production capacity in North America.

Polyethylene demand is expected to continue to grow over the very long term as global economies develop.

Exxon's massive production capacity in polyethylene's main raw material, ethylene, could both shield against inflation and provide a significant competitive advantage.

Futures contracts over the next several months are indicating expectations of continued lower crude prices, highlighting the critical importance of the Chemical segment.
