ICIS Special Report: A look into Asia Polyolefins

A recent downtrend on Asian polyolefins prices can be observed as a result of recent developments such as the yuan devaluation and stock market crash.

What then is the impact of this bearish market sentiment on buyers and sellers? Will production capacities be affected? What is the near-term outlook of the polyolefins markets.


In this special report, our Singapore-based team addresses all of the following questions:

  • The impact of the yuan devaluation and stock markets on polypropylene (PP) and polyethylene (PE)
  • Current market overview and recent trends in the polyolefins markets in Asia, domestic southeast Asia and Middle East
  • Supply and demand analysis of the Asian polyolefins industry
  • What’s happening in the Asian naphtha markets, specifically China?
  • Near-term outlook of where the market is heading
