Insight into the polymers market of Latin America

Insight into the polymers market of Latin America
Continued growth in Latin America's economies has provided plenty of new opportunities for its petrochemical industry over the past decade. Plans for investments in new petrochemical plants were announced as demand continued to grow.

But in 2011 and 2012 the region has not been immune to the on-going global financial crisis and the regions power houses such as Brazil and Argentina have experienced slowing economic growth that also affects the regions chemical industry, both in sales volumes and prices. Announcements in new capacities also in the polymers industry have been put on hold not only due to the economic uncertainty, but also due to the new-found competitiveness of North American feedstocks. Plenty of questions remain for the Latin American petrochemical industry what the future will hold for the region.

The ICIS Latin American Polymers Conference has been designed to equip executives involved in the polymers industry with the most up-to-date information about industry trends and market dynamics to enable them to identify new business opportunities and make informed buying decisions.

Latin American Polymers Conference, which will now take place in Sao Paulo on the 3rd & 4th April 2014 will give its attendants many benefits. Firstly, it will provide with the latest information on Latin America's polymers market, especially with detailed insights into PE, PP, PET, PS and PVC market. It will be also an occasion to get the essential industry insights from key market players, e.g. Fabian Gil (Vice President Commercial, Plastics Latin America, The Dow CHemical Company), Claudio Rocha (Diretor Comercial / Commercial Director, Videolar SA), Alexandre Elias (Renewables Chemicals Business Director, Braskem) and Auri Marçon (President, ABIPET - Brazilian PET Industry Association / Associação Brasileira da Indústria do PET).

The big advantage of the conference is its regional character. Rather than offering general information on wider global trends, the conference hones in on the issues affecting the Latin American market and offers ideas on how the region can remain competitive. The conference provide with excellent networking opportunities over a day and a half. Over five hours of the agenda has been set aside to enable you to meet and connect with the key commercial players in the Latin American polymers industry.

This event has been strategically timed to coincide with PlastShow Brazil 2014 which also takes place in Sao Paulo. With so many polymers market players from across Latin America present in the city, this is the perfect time to fulfil all your business needs in one trip.
