Argus Petrochemicals 2020: CIS and Global Markets

Business leaders from the petrochemicals supply chain at one platform

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?
