IHS is presenting the IHS Asia Chemical Conference in Singapore on September 3-4, 2014.

"Opportunities for Asia Amid Growing Global Competition"

The IHS Asia Chemical Conference is the only conference in Asia with in-depth analysis and overviews of the economy, energy & feedstocks, and chemicals spanning base chemicals and polymers to specialties and end-uses. It offers two full days of first-class content and analysis from IHS, your trusted partner in decision-making.

  • Opportunities for Asia Amid Growing Global Competition

    The Asia chemical industry is under increasing competitive pressure from other regions. North America has re-emerged as a competitive production base with shale, and the Mideast has started a shift in strategy to diversify into value-added chemicals with ethane feedstock constraints. Despite these challenges, Asia remains the region with the strongest economic growth, and opportunities abound - the Asian chemical industry will continue to see a strong expansion in the coming years in both conventional petrochemicals and unconventional chemicals, coal will spur competitiveness of Asia olefins for the next 10 years in China and other Asian countries, and large amounts of investment will also be made in imported LPG-based chemical projects. Some Asian companies with no cost advantages are adopting a "going for specialty" strategy to meet these challenges.

    What will you learn by attending the 2014 IHS Asia Chemical Conference?

    • How do very low-cost chemicals from North America and the Mideast affect trade, regional operating rates, and regional margins?
    • When and how does Asia’s chemical cost position change?
    • How will Asia producers respond as new low-cost capacity enters the market?
    • As the gap between coal/ natural gas and oil increases, how will global pricing and product demand be affected?
    • How can regional buyers of chemicals and plastics develop strategies to access new low-cost supply sources?
    • Is China's coal to chemicals expansion program (CTO/CTMEG/CTAromatics) competitive and sustainable?
    • What is the effect on the commercial landscape of on-purpose production of propylene, butadiene, Reformate to PX?
    • What happens as Asia/ China demand growth rates decline?
    • Where are the opportunities in specialty chemicals?
