SINGAPORE, June 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
A new annual study on China's metallocene polyolefins market has been launched by ICIS to support investors and sellers interested in maximising the opportunities emerging from this demand market.
ICIS is recognised domestically and internationally as a leading source of market information on global commodities and an established authority on China markets. The new ICIS China Metallocene Polyolefins Annual Study is produced by ICIS experts in the region and provides detailed analysis and forecasts for China's metallocene polyethylene (PE) and metallocene polypropylene (PP) markets. The study includes an integrated view of data, expert local insights into the current buying market and the growth outlook for the next two years.
As one of Asia's largest metallocene polyolefins importers, China is already an active demand market, which offers attractive business development opportunities to international sellers seeking to enter or grow their market share as well as investors looking for new deals.
Significant capacity expansion has been seen in the Chinese polyolefins sector over the last five years. This, together with the arrival of import cargoes, has led to abundant short-term supply and stagnant prices. Capacity is expected to increase further by 2017 to reach 11.54m tonnes, causing market participants to seek alternative markets with higher margins and strong growth prospects, such as speciality-grade polyolefins.
Market players need to build their understanding with reliable insights into China's demand market size, growth prospects and buying market structure in order to make informed medium and longer-term plans for trading metallocene polyolefins with China.
"This study is the only metallocene polyolefins analysis report focusing on China's demand and competitive landscape in the import market. Market participants need to have local insight and a detailed understanding of what will happen next to support their planning process," commented Amy Yu, ICIS China editor.
