WEBINAR - Changing fortunes in the polyurethane value chain
Note, this Webinar was held on the 18th November - if you missed it Contact Us for further information.
2020 has seen a reversal in the fortunes of most players in the polyurethane industry. Containment measures implemented during the first half of the year caused disruption to supply and a sharp drop in demand during Q2 as construction and automotive output fell as well as consumer spending due to lockdown measures. Q3 has seen strong recovery in demand in many sectors of the industry but question marks over demand growth and oversupply remain for Q4 and as we look into 2021. This webinar looks at the polyurethane industry in 2020 and gives NexantECA's outlook on supply of polyurethane raw materials and demand for different types of polyurethane.
This Webinar will address key questions:
- The impact to the isocyanate, polyol and polyurethane industry in 2020
- Outlook for the polyurethane value chain in the near term
- The trends likely to affect the polyurethane industry in the longer term
