China Petrochemical Market Solutions

Your trusted source for China chemical data and insights

China is perhaps the most opaque petrochemical market in the world and is likely to be the biggest producer of some key chemical commodities. Moreover, China’s ‘One Belt, One Road’ initiative will undoubtedly make exports to other regions faster and cheaper with lower transport costs.

As the country now becomes more competitive in the petrochemicals landscape, it is critical for domestic and international market participants to keep track of market changes, thereby capturing opportunities that should not be missed.
