5th Global Chlor-vinyl Markets Conference, Meeting in Istanbul – Turkey, Will Spotlight Bright Spots in Global PVC Markets

Thursday, April 22nd, 2010

With Asian led revival of global economy, the prospects for PVC look highly positive. Accounting for over 50% of PVC output, the housing sector has been the driving force behind the PVC market surge. Improving margins is yet to be complemented by steady demand due to regional volatilities. In this scenario, which region has the potential to drive PVC growth and what exactly are the roadblocks for the sector? What are the chances for market recovery in the west? What is driving the PVC market in emerging economies?

CMT’s 5th Global Chlor-Vinyl Markets conference meets in Istanbul-Turkey on 10-11 June 2010 to provide high-level insights for resin producers/traders, plastic additives suppliers, compounders, end-users and technology providers alike to aid them in developing strategic decisions going forward.

The conference will commence with vital updates on the world economic situation and outlook for 2010/11. This will pave the way for key sessions on “Changing Vinyl Trade Patterns” by Nexant Chemsystems and “Challenges Facing the European PVC Industry, and PVC Production Cost Competitveness” shared by Arkema

The 5th Global Chlor-Vinyl Markets will also focus on prospects of PVC markets and trends from leading PVC producers/traders including Formosa Plastics, Arkema, PETKIM Petrokimya, Egyptian Petrochemical, Vinmar International, Market Report Company and DCW Ltd.

Turkey’s Esen Plastik will address the challenges of PVC materials sourcing from a customer’s perspective. Other regional and domestic markets to be covered include Russia, Ukraine, Central Asia, Middle East, Asia, USA, and Brazil. The end-user session at the conference will also include the outlook for plastic pipes and profiles as well as medical applications.

With consumer demanding more environmentally friendly product, will PVC demand be substituted by other “green” products, and how big is the market for “green” PVC? Participants at the conference will receive updates on bio-based plasticizers from Danisco’s Sales Manager for plastic additives, as he discusses technology innovations, major applications and growth trends. ChemOrbis will introduce the e-commerce solutions dedicated for the plastics industry during the conference.
