Impact of the Next Capital Cycle On Global Chemical Markets
Can the new world order in energy and chemicals be sustained?

The 2014 IHS World Petrochemical Conference & Workshops will address the core issues of the day, offering analysis and insight from IHS experts and industry leaders.

The IHS World Petrochemical Conference & Workshops is the leading gathering of senior chemical industry decision-makers from around the world. Join more than 1,200 of your industry peers for unparalleled insight, critical analysis, and clarity of the future of the petrochemical industry in a new global landscape.

What will you learn by attending the IHS Chemical World Petrochemical Conference in 2014?

  • Which companies will lead the next capital cycle as plans to build new chemical plants in China, North America and the Middle East are advanced?
  • Can coal and bio based investments compete in an environment of global high crude oil and low North America natural gas prices?
  • How will producers in high-cost locations respond as new low-cost capacity enters the market?
  • Will M&A activity accelerate as an alternative to building new chemical assets?
  • Will North America chemical producers face increased competition from foreign investments in the domestic market?
  • How can regional buyers of chemicals and plastics develop strategies to access new low-cost supply sources?
  • How will trade patterns evolve and which companies will leverage the opportunities to invest in the global chemicals supply chain?
  • Will the chemical industry over-build in the next cycle, assuming stable conditions in the global economy?
