Following the success of the ICIS networking discussion during EPCA, we would like to give you the opportunity to download the presentation given by ICIS consultants.
The presentation will give you an overview of the most important and engaging global developments affecting the petrochemicals industry including:
ICIS markets reporter Eashani Chavda joins Europe methanol editor Vicky Ellis at the 51st EPCA in Berlin, where they discuss initial reactions to the methanol European Contract Price and market expectations for 2018.
On the sidelines of the 51st annual meeting of the European Petrochemical Association (EPCA) in Berlin, Germany, Senior Editor Melissa Bartlett and Markets Reporter Pavle Popovic discuss how amid global anti-dumping duties and investigations, Europeans could see trade polyethylene terephthalate (PET) flows reconfigured and what that means for the market.
Markets Editor Melissa Hurley interviews Heidi Finch ahead of this year’s EPCA meeting about the supply constraints for propylene oxide and its derivatives over recent months, which resulted in periods of price spikes for PO derivatives.
Watch Pavle Popovic interview Katherine Sale, senior editor manager at ICIS and editor of the European methyl methacrylate (MMA) report, on the continued global supply tightness. Supply constraints and the new capacity coming onstream in the Middle East will dominate discussions for MMA players at this year’s EPCA meeting in October.

The 51st European Petrochemical Association (EPCA) in Berlin was bursting with optimism and excitement. Petrochemical producers in Europe are facing continuing pressures within the modern economy to keep up with demand however given the economic backdrop, competitiveness has increased.
Our insight editor Nigel Davis reports on the event in this summary.
This ICIS infographic reviews key developments in the European olefins landscape during the first half of 2017, as well as production and trade data for ethylene, and polymer grade propylene (PGP) spot price evolution.
This and the realisation that the concentration of planned cracker and BD unit turnarounds in Europe would likely heavily constrain Europe's supply, sent prices soaring.
This ICIS infographic examines the new capacity in the Middle East, the impact on trade flows, and what further challenges the market may face in 2017.
Pricing dynamics are increasingly influenced by Asia and especially China. The growing amount of Chinese methanol-to-olefins (MTO) plants consume large quantities of methanol, as long as the price is right.
This ICIS infographic reviews the underlying causes of tightness in PO and explores the supply challenges that could lie ahead, despite new capacity coming onstream.
