Asia and Middle East Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) Webinar

A look at current prices, key trends and the near-term PET outlook
Increased volatility in feedstock purified terephthalic acid (PTA) and monoethylene glycol (MEG) price have caused both Asian and Middle Eastern PET prices to fluctuate for the first two quarters of 2014. As a result, PET producers have either reduced their production rate or increased their offers to cope with the high production costs.

How will the industry cope with these challenges?
ICIS hosted a free webinar covering the PET markets in Asia and the Middle East. The webinar was specifically designed to provide the information you need when faced with volatile price movements in both regions.

By downloading the presentation slides, you will: 
  • Gain an in-depth analysis of the impact of feedstock volatility on PET
  • Assess the market penetration of recycled polyethylene terephthalate (R-PET): Industry structure as well as identifying demand drivers and their impact on the virgin PET market
  • Receive a short-term outlook of where the market is heading in terms of prices, supply and demand
