PEPP 2016: New Capacity, Shifting Trade Flows, and Opportunities for Value Creation
IHS Chemical's flagship PEPP conference in Europe will focus this year on the dynamic global energy situation, the next wave of polymer capacity additions worldwide, and the ripples it will have throughout the supply chain. Additional supply, particularly from North America and the Middle East, will lead to major changes in market dynamics – sellers will face increased competition while buyers will have greater supply options. Trade flows will increase, driving the need for improved supply chain management.
Evolving consumer trends and regulations mean increasing demand for enhanced product quality in several end uses such as packaging and automotive, while low oil prices could make the environment even more attractive for new plastics applications. These will drive new innovations in PE/PP technology and applications.
Where are opportunities for the PE/PP industry to create value in this landscape?
PEPP 2016 will feature a stellar lineup of more than 25 IHS and industry experts over two full days exploring polyolefin technology developments and new applications, additives and compounding, trends in packaging requirements, as well as the outlook for distribution and logistics.
Who should attend?
The 24th Annual PEPP will draw speakers and attendees spanning the PE/PP chain including:
Resin producers and distributors
Catalyst and process technology providers
Attendees at PEPP 2016 will have valuable networking opportunities. Last year's event drew more than 150 delegates from 77 companies and 23 countries.
The main program (June 2-3) will be preceded on June 1 by a training workshop:
Olefins and Polyolefins: Feedstocks, Cost Competitiveness, Market Dynamics, Technologies and Trade
This year's workshop offers enhanced content via two concurrent breakout sessions in the afternoon:
- Determining the Cost Competitiveness of Polyolefin Plants, Projects and Producers
- Technology, Market Dynamics and Trade of Polyolefins
