Argus Petrochemicals 2021. CIS and Global Markets.

The spread of coronavirus infection has been a tough test for the global economy, and the petrochemical industry is no exception among the sectors that have felt the impact from the pandemic. The current situation has revealed a number of trends, which may greatly influence the industry’s future development and its place in the modern world.

Among the pending questions are: Have all the market participants coped with the changes occurred, and what lessons have they learned? What impact did the pandemic have on the consumption structure and the profitability of petrochemicals production, and how long will this impact last?
