SINGAPORE, January 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
ICIS, the world's largest petrochemical market information provider, has launched a new suite of annual studies covering China's plastics, paper, aromatics, rubber and alcohol markets. Produced by locally based industry experts and combining the expertise of a global analytical team based in key hubs in the Americas, Asia and Europe, each in-depth study offers detailed insight into individual petrochemical markets in China and answers important questions about the future.
As the largest petrochemicals importer in Asia, China is attractive to global exporters. Changes in supply, demand and price can have a significant impact on local as well as global markets.
However, until now it has been difficult to access detailed market information from reliable sources, not only to understand developments in China but also to gain a trusted view of the outlook for the coming year.
ICIS now provides a solution by launching the following:
- China ABS annual study
- China methanol annual study
- China polyethylene annual study (2013-2017)
- China polypropylene annual study (2013-2017)
- China SBR annual study
- China styrene annual study
- China paper annual study
The annual studies allow you to monitor changes, formulate strategies and evolve plans. They answer important questions including how the market is developing, sources of demand, how to identify new opportunities, trade patterns and the factors driving prices.
Produced as a single, easy-reference report, each ICIS annual study offers an integrated view of data, as well as expert analysis of current and future year trends. Trade flows, capacities, and supply and demand data are also included.
"Subscribers will be able to use the new studies to learn more about the current market fundamentals, supply/demand forecast for 2014 and gain an upper hand when planning and negotiating business in 2014. All studies are based on deep insights from a strong local China presence combined with ICIS' international expertise," says Charmaine Chew, Product Development Manager for ICIS China.
