The World Plastics Annual Study
[http://www.icis.com/chemicals/channel-info-about/world-plastics-study/?cmpid=DSC|CHEM|CHPRI-2012-GLOBAL-as-pressrelease_worldplastic&sfid=70120000000tSLn ]
gives a complete and
comprehensive review of the nine major plastics, including supply and demand data,
import/export assessments, growth rates and production capacities. Historical data given
goes back as far as 2000, while forecasts are up to 2025.

“Following the 2008-09 recession, demand growth for the major thermoplastics started
picking up in 2010, and recovery continued in 2011-12. Further market improvements are
expected. Taking PE as an example, worldwide demand is forecasted to reach 107m tonnes by
2013 and 130m tonnes by 2025,” says Fabrizio Galie, polymers consultant for ICIS.

“The 2012 version of the World Plastics Annual Study will give details on these areas
of growth for the plastics industry, including analysis of market drivers and foreseen
challenges,” Galie adds.

ICIS has also launched its 2012 China Annual Reports
[http://www.icis.com/Chemicals/channel-info-about/China-polymers-annual/?cmpid=SOC|CHEM|CHCRE-2012-2510-GLOBAL-globalannualplastics-pressrelease-chinaannual&sfid=70120000000tSAV&channel=chemicals&region=china ]
to give market players who are highly involved in China a
detailed analysis of the PP and PE domestic markets.

“With the developments in China affecting the wider thermoplastics industry, it is
equally important to gain access to accurate and thorough market intelligence direct from
this region,” Steve Tan, ICIS editorial director for Asia, says. “The ICIS China Annual
Reports provide in-depth information and insight from our team of local experts on one of
the world’s most exciting plastics markets.”

The China Annual Reports give readers a complete view of developments and forecasts
for the next 12 months, focusing on domestic consumption and upstream and downstream
markets, as well as updates on the Chinese government’s policies affecting trade
activities.
