IHS is presenting the LAPPC 2014: 4th Annual Latin American Petrochemicals and Polymers Conference and Industry Workshop: "Preparing for Surplus Capacity" in São Paulo, Brazil on September 10-12, 2014.
IHS presents this event that brings together unparalleled market expertise and the insights of major industry players in the Latin American petrochemical markets.
The energy revolution in North America, spurred by its new shale gas opportunities, will provide the region with readier access to abundant and low-cost feedstocks. This new feedstock position will drive significant capacity expansions for a variety of plastic resins and Latin America is expected to be a prime market. As a result, North American producers are expected to view Latin American markets as strategic rather than opportunistic.
How will this shift affect the Latin American petrochemical markets — and your business?
PLEASE NOTE: Conference and workshop will be presented in English and simultaneously translated into Portuguese and Spanish.
