Argus Petrochemicals 2020: CIS and Global Markets

Clearly the events of 2020 will stay in the memory for a long time, and their consequences may lead to significant shifts in the global and regional economies. The petrochemical industry is no exception: the first half of 2020 revealed a series of trends, which, if developed, could dramatically affect the industry landscape and its prospects. 

Among the pending questions are: How quickly will petrochemical products demand rebound? Have all the market participants coped with changes in supply chains? Are there any business areas which managed to benefit from the Covid-19 pandemic, and will they be able to sustain their success?

Our conference will be a platform for discussion of the petrochemical industry’s preliminary results for 2020. The event will offer access to the most up-to-date forecasts for future development. Our experts will discuss in detail the factors which will determine the state of industry in the context of the “new normal”.
