ICIS publishes two new reports covering China’s evolving refinery sector

ICIS, a leading source of independent market intelligence in China, has launched two comprehensive reports to shed light on the recent developments in the Chinese refinery sector.

As the country’s competitive landscape shifts, with growing independent refinery capacity and changing feedstock supply/demand, the reports come at a pivotal time for international players.

As one of the largest crude consumers in the world, China’s refinery sector plays an important role in global markets. These comprehensive reports provide expert commentary and analysis, supported by historical, current and forecast data covering all aspects of the country’s dynamic refining sector.

The ICIS’ China Independent Refinery Report takes a detailed look at the growth of independent refineries, by region and source, to map out the evolving sector in light of hot topics and government policies. The China Refinery Feedstock Annual Study analyses the state of feedstock demand/supply, breaking down the current balance and providing insight into the future of Chinese feedstock consumption.

Both reports include the most up-to-date information from the region, with analysis from local experts. The reports answer key questions on both the current situation and the outlook for Chinese refinery, as well as its impact on global crude.

Li Li, Head of ICIS’ China research team, says: “In a highly dynamic market, it’s crucial for industry players to stay up to speed with developments in Chinese refinery. These reports will allow you to identify risk and opportunities in China’s fast-moving markets.”
