What’s New In 2019?

• A New Start

From 2019, China will begin to witness the establishment of oil refineries by privately owned enterprises, including Zhejiang Petrochemical, Hengyi Petrochemical and Hengyi Industries (Brunei) – all coming on stream one after another and marking a new era of higher integration for China’s polyester chain.

• New Components

In November 2018, Chinese PTA Futures Markets opened to foreign investors.

In December 2018, MEG also became listed on Chinese Futures Markets.

Research in preparation for the next round of Polyester Staple Fibre and PET Packaging Resin technology innovation and capacity expansion are underway.

Increased involvement in international markets and enhanced financial tools are fuelling the industry

• New Goals

Against a challenging global economic backdrop in 2019, China is now established as the worlds leading producer of PET packaging resin, polyester filament yarn and PTA. New refining and MEG production capacity in 2019 and beyond should see further milestones attained and surpassed.

New Ideas & Fresh Opportunities

  • Supported by Polyester Committee of China Chemical Fibers Association and China National Chemical Fiber Corp., China Chemical & Fiber Economic Information Network (CCFEI) and Tecnon OrbiChem join again to host the 16th China International Polyester & Intermediates Forum.
  • As in the past, government institutions, industry associations, feedstock suppliers, polyester producers, traders and financial experts from upstream and downstream, home and abroad, will meet to share ideas and information on the global polyester chain, reviewing market and economic performance, in preparation for the opportunities and challenges ahead.
  • CCFEI and Tecnon OrbiChem continue to seek every opportunity to improve our events. The 2018 polyester conference was attended by ~500 participants from 24 countries and all major regions. In addition to the networking and promotional opportunities, speakers of the highest calibre are invited to present their views and share their varied industry perspectives.
