    PVC Converter Industry Outlook

    This presentation sets the stage for understanding the challenges that PVC converters are facing nowadays and in the near future. We will review the supply chain structure in North America, analyze the nature of the different PVC end use applications and the main markets in which converters participate. We will take a glance at the power input for the extrusion process and explain why there are regional differences within the US. Finally, we will analyze the influence that end-product international trade, infrastructure funding, and competition with other materials have on the market.

    The Future of PVC in a More Sustainable World

    This presentation will review the current base case outlook for prime PVC on a regional and global level. Amongst the aspects that will weigh on growth in future will be the increasing profile of recycling, an industry that we will discuss in detail, with a particular focus on Europe, which is playing a leading role in recycling. In conclusion, the presentation will analyze the net effect (base case less recycling in certain scenarios) in terms of prime PVC supply/demand, and short-/mid-term planning and investment options.

    Global Polypropylene – Strong to Balanced as China Taps the Breaks on Demand

    Polypropylene is in the middle of a prolific run of strong demand that has exceeded global production in recent years which has led to elevated prices and margins for global suppliers. However, the landscape appears to moderating in 2019 and 2020 as global demand is forecast to stall slightly versus previous expectations, led by China’s reaction to the trade war with the United States. This talk with focus on the new demand forecast and touch on hot topics for key regions around the world affecting supply, prices and margins.
