Report summary

PCI Wood Mackenzie was delighted to participate in this year's EPCA (European Petrochemical Association) Conference held in Berlin. The European industry has experienced robust demand for polyolefins and this has revived some talk of investments in the region. However Europe wasn't the only hot topic for polyolefins as many industry participants were concerned about what is happening in other regions and the implications for the European industry. We participated in dozens of meetings and interactions and our thoughts are summarised in this insight "EPCA 2017: 5 key polyolefins market discussion points from Berlin".
