A surge in new petrochemical production capacities across China, mainly for paraxylene, is likely to be the key factor that will heavily impact the sector globally, with US-China trade tensions next in line. Both factors have the potential to cause disruptions and change trade flows, while triggering fluctuations in margins.

Volatile upstream markets, such as crude oil and naphtha, are not making these markets any more predictable either, and 2019 is set to be a year full of challenges.

This special outlook report takes an in-depth look at the key themes expected to shape key Asian petrochemical markets in the months ahead.
