Asia PP and PE Forecast Webinar

Asian polyolefin prices, margins and outlook in 2018

Despite sharp rises in the cost of upstream crude and naphtha towards the end of the year, Chinese polyolefins still saw strong demand in 2017. How long can we expect this trend to last?

Join this free webinar hosted by our team of consultants at ICIS, and gain the answers to all of the following:

  • What is the impact of Chinese economic reforms on the country’s demand for polyolefins?
  • How will the slowdown in credit growth and the restructuring of manufacturing industries reshape consumption growth?
  • Given geopolitical tensions, oil prices are expected to rise above $70/bbl. How will this affect the naphtha cracker margins and the broader Asian economy in 2018?
  • What is ICIS’ prediction on the influx of US PE supply and how this will impact Asian PE pricing and margins?

The webinar will also cover the methodology behind our price and margin forecasts in terms of the proprietary mathematical models we use, to give you visibility on how our projections are derived.

Key topics covered include:

  • Overview of the trading activities in Asian polyolefins in 2017
  • Forecast of how the prices and the market in Asia will evolve in 2018
  • How our price forecast reports help market players to plan
  • The methodology behind the price forecast
