The global petrochemical industry has experienced decades of sustained growth with last few years witnessing some shifts in regional relative competitiveness but it is uncertain whether the industry will follow the same trends going forward as it has in the past.  This opening panel will review major trends, ongoing and forecast projects in major regions to provide a context for future developments in Canada. The discussion will examine key development factors – such as integration, flexibility, as well as access to feedstock and demand centers – and define adaptations necessary in this evolving business environment.
