China Chlor-Alkali & PVC

Chemical Market Advisory Service: China Chlor-Alkali & PVC (formerly CMAI China Chlor-Alkali/PVC Market Advisory Service and Harriman Chemsult Chemsult Week) covers China’s dynamic markets for chlorine, caustic soda and PVC, as well as upstream and downstream relationships.

The service can be purchased by itself, or, for a reduced fee, in conjunction with the Chemical Market Advisory Service: Global Chlor-Alkali (a former service of CMAI and Harriman Chemsult).

The emergence of China as the world’s largest producer of chlor-alkali/vinyls, and its use of an acetylene process to make VCM, have had a profound effect on the industry’s regional and global supply and demand balances. Investors face key issues, such as the availability of coal and lime and access to competitive power and salt. Within this rapidly evolving landscape, Chemical Market Advisory Service: China Chlor-Alkali & PVC provides stakeholders the objective, accurate data they need to make sound business decisions.

Each month, clients receive a report and supplemental—available in English or Chinese—containing historical and forecasted prices and deep analysis of market fundamentals for China’s chlorine, caustic soda and vinyls markets and their related upstream and downstream sectors. Clients may choose to enhance this service with our weekly price reports for the Asian chlor-alkali and vinyls sectors.
