IHS Markit Briefing at APLA
IHS Markit is participating at APLA Annual Conference in Cancun, Mexico, Nov 10-13, 2018.
Please note this pre-conference seminar is open only to registered APLA delegates.
The year 2018 represents the sixth year of an extended upcycle in global chemical markets - characterized by robust demand, tight supply, and strong profitability. This extended period of profitability has caused a surge in reinvestment planning activity in North America, the Middle East, China and other Asia locations. And in Latin America, companies are pursuing investments in feedstock and new capacity.
Key issues include rising crude oil prices, domestic fiscal policy and currency fluctuations, geopolitical tensions, and a variety of trade disputes. Slowing economic growth in the early 2020s represents a threat to strong chemical market conditions.
The Region has a long list of new presidents and political stability should aid growth as foreign direct investment begins to poor into the region. As the industry rides a wave of high profits, join IHS Markit for this industry seminar, which will dive into several key topics: Understanding the key risks that could derail the global economy: Trade Wars, Global Slowdown, and Rising Geopolitical Risks. How will demand for finished goods trend in the region. Sustainability related issues affecting how business has been done in the past.
We would like to take this opportunity during APLA to share IHS Markit views on key issues to consider as we look into the next 24 months. Presenting an integrated view of the markets from Feedstock to basic petrochemicals and derivatives. We hope to provide valuable insight to companies doing business in the Americas. Participants will have the opportunity to exchange views with our experts and identify Key Issues that might affect their particular business in the Region.
