The 9th PCI Consulting Group North American Polyester Industry Conference will once again be held in Houston, Texas at the Airport Marriott Hotel on 14th and 15th February 2007.
Conference details, as well as a registration form, can be found here.
Key topics include:
Energy Markets: Although down from its mid-2006 peak, how stable is oil pricing and is natural gas pricing still a volatile beast?
- Paraxylene: One year on from gasoline reformulation is the 2006 peak likely to return and be a repeat event or will better supplied gasoline markets exert a less threatening influence this summer?
- PTA: The start-up of 6 worldscale PTA plants in China is heralding a global slide in PTA as traditional suppliers begin to lose market share and face a harsh future. How is North America adjusting to deal with the threat of a massive Asian PTA surplus?
- MEG: The delays and slippage on new plants have changed the prognosis for the MEG balances for 2007 and 2008. What impact will this have on North American producers?
PET: North America continues to attract investment, yet is also in the process of restructuring for the future. What other developments may occur in the coming 12-18 months?
Polyester Fibers: Has China's influence really waned as the import figure would have us believe and where are the threats coming from?
