Opportunities for downstream chemicals in South America

Our managing director, Roger Lee, gave his presentation about downstream petrochemicals opportunities in South America in the recent Latin American Petrochemical Annual Meeting (APLA) in Argentina.

The presentation covers polyester & intermediates, polyamides & intermediates, fibres & intermediates, caustic soda/VCM/PVC, orthoxylene/phthalates, plasticiser alcohols, acrylic acid/acrylates, acetic acid/VAM, phenol/acetone, maleic anhydride/BDO.

South America is net importer of many intermediates, fibers and resins. Some product areas have significant import substitution opportunities. There are also opportunities for investments even in the current market conditions.

You can download the entire presentation below after a brief sign-up.
