Nylon yarn makers enjoying increased margins despite soft pricing
Summary: 
Increasing supplies of crude oil from North American shale formations continued to weigh heavily on prices this year, creating a glut in world markets and decreasing demand for oil from the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries. OPEC forecast that its market share would be 5 percent lower by 2018 as shale supplies continued to increase faster than demand. However, OPEC Secretary-General Abdullah al-Badri believes that the 12-member cartel, which pumps a third of the world's oil, prices would recover next year.
