ICIS China Metallocene Polyolefins Annual Study

Detailed analysis and forecasts for China’s metallocene polypropylene and metallocene polyethylene markets

As one of Asia’s largest metallocene polyolefins importers, China is an important demand market for international sellers and offers good opportunities. As a result, understanding China’s demand market size, growth prospects and buying market structure is important for international sellers’ business development – whether they are entering or growing market share in China.

The ICIS China Metallocene Polyolefins Annual Study is written by a team of local ICIS experts and covers:

  • The metallocene polyethylene market in detail, with information on the growing metallocene polypropylene market
  • China’s demand and competitive landscape in the import market
  • The country’s buying patterns and a growth outlook for the next two years

Chemical profile: US Linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE)

Demand for linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) exports waned during 2013 as US prices were undercut by other regions. An uptake in construction and landscaping is expected to boost domestic demand. Operating rates should remain above 90% for the next few years.

A webinar on China’s economic transformation

China has driven growth in the chemical industry since 2008, however this was due to an explosion of credit. Now the country is facing the consequences of its $10 trillion surge and China’s new leaders recognise that an economic revolution is needed to solve this problem.

As part of the ICIS series of free market information, we hosted a webinar on 23 April 2014.  A  recording of the webinar and presentation slides is available for you to download.
