Asia and Middle East Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) Webinar

23 June 2014

A look at current prices, key trends and the near-term outlook of PET 

Increased volatility in feedstock purified terephthalic acid (PTA) and monoethylene glycol (MEG) have caused both Asian and Middle Eastern PET prices to move in a down-up trend for the first two quarters of 2014. As a result, PET producers either reduced their production rate or increase their offers to cope with high production cost.

How will the industry cope with these challenges?

ICIS invites you to attend this free market outlook webinar covering the volatile PET markets in Asia in Middle East. The webinar has been specifically designed to address the information you need when operating against volatile price movements for both regions.

By attending this webinar, you will:

  • Gain an in-depth analysis of the impact of feedstock volatility in PET
  • Assess the market penetration of R-PET: Industry structure, identifying demand drivers and its impact on the virgin PET market
  • Receive a short-term outlook of where the market is heading in terms of prices, supply and demand.
