Tuesday, December 17, 2013

Leading petrochemicals market intelligence provider, ICIS, has announced the launch of two new studies covering China’s polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP) markets. Each in-depth study serves as a comprehensive source of detailed information for China’s polyolefins market by providing you with data and analysis of the country’s supply and demand, cost and arbitrage, as well as forecast data for up to 2017.


With further polyolefin capacity expansions planned in China for 2014-2017, the competitive landscape is expected to change further and potentially create major challenges for international exporters. ICIS China Polyolefins Annual Studies give you deep insights on these market developments and how they impact your business plans.


  • International PE and PP producers will gain clearer understanding of China’s changing polymers markets and find out which markets to target to secure ongoing business development in the country.
  • Global producers operating in China can use the data to enhance their understanding of local customers and formulate a robust production and investment strategy for the longer term.
  • PE and PP buyers benefit from greater insight into China’s market dynamics and the future impact on stock levels, product availability and prices.
  • Upstream and feedstock producers operating in or trading with China can plan their olefins production and make investment decisions with confidence.


“China's PP capacity had increased rapidly in the past five years, while coal to PP plants will double their share of domestic capacities by 2017. There is a growing interest in the Chinese PP industry," said Bee Lin Chow, head of Asia markets at ICIS.

"The ICIS China PP five-year report offer insights on the Chinese markets, and it gives you access to in-depth analysis of hot topics, including coal to olefins costs and realistic views on the upcoming projects." she said.
