China Polyolefins Annual Studies

In-depth analysis and forecasts for China’s polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP) markets (2013-2017)

As the world’s largest polyolefins importer, China has become a source of uncertainty for industry players in recent months, as demand growth slows and domestic production increases. Unique coal-to-olefins production has altered the country’s competitive landscape, making expert analysis of the region even more vital for the international market when developing trading, buying and selling strategies.

ICIS offers two detailed annual studies covering the current state of China’s PE and PP markets and providing expert forecasts for up until 2017.

Both studies are compiled by ICIS polyolefins local experts and include the expertise of a global analytical team based in key hubs in the US, Singapore and Europe. These studies provide the most up-to-date and accurate market data and insights available, as well as reliable evidence to support and validate your business development strategies for China.
