The blog was in Brussels this week, chairing the ICIS European Purchasing Conference.
It was a packed room. Buyers are clearly very concerned about the high level of current raw material prices, and their volatility.
I was also interviewed by ICIS’ Will Beacham. The discussion covered:
• The effect of high oil prices on demand
• The risk of a downturn and
• The likely impact of the ageing BabyBoomers (those born between 1946-70) on future demand patterns.
