The first half of 2020 is unfolding in a radically different way than anyone could have predicted. As a result of COVID-19, thousands of chemical plants around the globe have halted production, stalled construction activity for ongoing capital projects and significantly delayed planned maintenance activities. The economic crisis resulting from the pandemic is altering the outlook for previously planned projects, pushing many investment decisions out another year or more in many cases.
Despite these short-term challenges, the growth outlook for the chemical industry remains positive over the long term. Demand for key olefin commodities is forecast to grow, while feedstock will remain attractively priced, driving the need for new world-scale capacity.
Some of the topics discussed will include:
- Impacts of COVID-19 on plant operations and investment spending
- Summaries of planned petrochemical capacity additions
- Future spending outlined by world region
- Demonstrations of spending by industry segment
- A focus on key market drivers influencing future spending
- Capital spending by project type [expansions, additions, etc.]
