ICIS presents an expert view of the significant events that has shaped the Polypropylene and Polyethylene market so far in 2015, and looks ahead to the last quarter of the year to see what challenges and opportunities lie ahead.
With low oil prices, a weak lira, global product tightness and economic and political uncertainty, the Turkish polymers market has had a rough ride so far in 2015. This webinar will look at the combined impact of these events on the market to date, and will look ahead for the rest of the year and into 2016 to highlight any potential challenges and opportunities facing Turkey, and the wider Polypropylene and Polyethylene markets.
Key areas this webinar will highlight include:

Matt Tudball joined ICIS in 2012 in London and is Senior Editor for the Turkish and African polypropylene and polyethylene markets. Matt was heavily involved in the launch of the Turkish PE and PP reports in February 2014, which are the first country-specific reports in Europe. He regularly travels to Turkey to engage with the market and promote the ICIS brand. Matt took over the African polymers reports in April 2015 because of the close links both Turkey and Africa share with the Middle East and Asian markets. Before joining ICIS, Matt took a career break in 2007 to study Chinese at the University of Leeds, during which he spent a year living in Shanghai, and graduated with a degree in Chinese and International Relations. Matt has previously lived in Hong Kong where he worked as a corporate trainer and English teacher for a private education company.
