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. Key sessions at the conference include:
  • A vital perspective on the global polymers market with a focus on developments in Latin America
  • Latest industry projections and in-depth supply and demand analysis for PE, PP, PET, PVC and PS
  • An update on North American shale gas, ethylene and propylene projects and their impact on the Latin American market
  • Leader manufacturers' perspectives on the status of the industry
  • Up-to-the-minute information on developments in the bio-plastics sector
  • Insight into changing trade dynamics in global petrochemicals markets and how Latin America can keep his competitive edge
