2017 Global outlook – ACS webinar on Thursday

ACS Jun17

My 6-monthly webinar for the American Chemical Society is on Thursday at 2pm EDT – please click here to register for this free event.  It will focus on two key topics:

  How does a market adapt in the face of declining growth?  Many different sectors across the chemical industry are in a state of oversupply and surplus capacity which has resulted in a slowing of production in multiple areas.
  In addition, the global balance of the oil market is shifting with OPEC losing its control on the market, China sending signals that its years of incredible growth are winding to a close and the impact of Brexit intensifying

Please join me and Bill Carroll, former Chair of the ACS Board, as we share our usual 6-mnthly update on the factors affecting the market and what these mean for you.

What You Will Learn
  Why the oil market is on shaky ground, and how that could lead to major geopolitical tensions where prices could fall back to median historical levels
  Why global reflation may be a myth due to China’s prioritization of pollution clean-up as a flagship policy
  Why we must “be prepared” and expect the unexpected as a winning strategy for the rest of 2017
