Seats are complimentary but limited, register for your place today »

The US petrochemical sector is undergoing a massive investment wave, against a largely positive global economic backdrop. However, risks are emerging, including rising trade tensions between the US and China, along with other trade partners. Other macro trends include China’s environmental crackdown, the EU circular economy and the rise of Middle East oil giants in the global petrochemicals market.

How are these structural changes in the US reshaping the global petrochemicals markets? How can its market participants adapt to these shifts?

Join ICIS market experts for this free half-day seminar, where our experts will share their latest insights and engage in market dialogue with delegates. The session will cover in-depth analysis on petrochemicals and polymer markets, and delve deeper into the implications of the much-discussed trade tariffs.
