The polyester industry is going through a tumultuous period, from PET resin shortages due to the M&G bankruptcy filing impacting the new Corpus Christi TX integrated PTA/PET resin plant. To PTA and polyester plant outages at a time of high demand, new government legislation and restrictions with the China Waste Ban as well as Tariff War between the US and China. The entire polyester chain is affected. Normal polyester trade flows have been further disrupted by a number of punitive anti-dumping and countervailing duties placed on PET resin and polyester staple imports from many countries. These and other topics will all be discussed and analysed in depth by our Wood Mackenzie experts and guest speakers at our upcoming 2019 Wood Mackenzie Americas Polyester Conference, Houston TX 27-28 February 2019.
