According to CMAI
consultants, operating rates are showing an unprecedented downturn suggesting the industry has already seen its up-cycle.
The company notes that earlier CMAI
projections for an industry upturn by 2005 are being influenced by a number of factors, including slower economic recovery in North America, the next wave of capacity expansions in the Middle East, the outbreak of SARS, the war in Iraq, volatile energy markets, and the role of China in global resin and finished goods trade.
Designed and taught by CMAI
professionals, these workshops are a one-of-a-kind opportunity to get acquainted with the most relevant concepts in these important polymer sectors.
All sessions will include market insight from global CMAI
consultants, who will discuss the pertinent issues facing the industry, and will be complemented by outside industry speakers.
Based on CMAI
projections, the global economic recovery will stimulate demand growth for both chlorine derivatives and caustic soda, but in uneven patterns.
