ICIS pushes into Russia polymers with MRC joint venture

In addition to the weekly market analysis magazine ICIS Chemical Business, ICIS is a major provider of benchmark chemical pricing data. This fast-expanding division is now pushing into Russian polymers through a joint venture (jv) with specialist benchmark price provider MRC.

A quick search shows just how relevant MRC will be for ICIS. In addition to pricing, they also host conferences and have an online news service. See below for a useful outlook given at a recent chlor-alkali conference on the PVC sector in Russia/Ukraine/CIS.

The blog hopes this JV will now become a rich source of information on this region.    

To mark the launch of their collaboration, ICIS and MRC are holding a one-day conference: “Russian Polymers Summit” on October 14th, 2010 in Moscow, Russia.

Participants will gain an understanding of the challenges facing the polymers market in Russia and the FSU. Key areas for focus will include Russian and international producers’ perspectives on the potential threats posed by increased tariffs; and on supply-demand issues and their impact on pricing.

Delegates will also have the opportunity to interact with key players in the Russian polymers market.
