THE 3RD ICIS Asian polymers conference, which will take place in Shanghai, China, on 16-17 April, will provide a major networking opportunity for executives in the Asian polymers markets to hear about the latest market trends in their sector.

ICIS conferences director Alan Tyler says: "With China once again providing the engine for growth across the region, it was a natural choice for us to again select Shanghai as the venue for this year's conference. As a group, we are gaining more and more traction in China, and now [that] we hold events in the country more than half our total delegates are from the mainland."

Tyler says that Asia's petrochemicals industry is expected to be bullish in 2007, as supply will likely remain tight until at least 2008. And, as chemical companies position themselves to gain access to cheaper feedstock through mergers and acquisitions, particularly in the Middle East, the polymers market could remain competitive.

In Asia, China is the fastest-growing market for chemicals. Consultancy firm KPMG says that China's market for petrochemicals is set to grow more rapidly than its economy, boosted by demand from the manufacturing and construction industries, and investment in facilities.

Growth sectors in China include plastic resins, and consumption is likely to rise by between 8% and 10%/year from 2007 to 2012.

Issues from raw material supply to the main end-user sectors will all be covered in the Asian polymers conference.
