ICIS World Polymers Market Outlook

“In 2005-2013, the global polymer industry grew by 45m tonnes to 202m tonnes, corresponding to an average annual consumption growth of 3.2%”

“There is a risk that the start-up of too many giant plants in North America will result in overcapacity by 2018-19, if all projects are completed according to the announced plans”

“Growth potential remains good throughout South East Asia. In this part of the world many countries (e.g. India and Vietnam) are likely to see polymers demand growth well in excess of GDP”
