LONDON (ICIS)--ICIS senior editor Chris Barker interviews markets editor Ben Lake about the troubled Turkish polymers market in 2017 and what the outlook is for the upcoming year.

This appears more likely in polypropylene but polyethylene players are waiting for large volumes to arrive from expanded production capacities in the US and India.
