Strategizing for Growth During a Demand-Driven Trough

At the Global Chlor-alkali and Vinyls Conference 2024, Chemical Market Analytics and leading industry experts will showcase the latest supply and demand forecasts and associated price, cost and margin trends to give you the tools to optimize your strategy in an evolving market.

This year’s conference will focus on Strategizing for Growth During a Demand-driven Trough and include discussion on:

  • The post-pandemic surge led to runaway inflation driving central bankers to respond by raising interest rates. Economic activity is slowing as inflation declines, reducing chlor-alkali and vinyls demand.
  • Declining demand has created chlor-alkali and vinyls troughs; but, with a short downcycle expected, and limited new near-term capacity announced, a drawn-out recovery is not anticipated.
  • Strategic decisions preparing for renewed growth will be informed by answers to questions like: “How fast will the recovery be?”, “Where will new demand come from?”, “Should I invest in new capacity?”, “Where should I invest?”, and “What are the forecast price trajectories?”
