The changing landscape of the oxo-alcohols industry indicates a bleak outlook for trade between Europe, Asia and the US. Unstable cracker operating rates, the massive boost to the US market through shale gas and new oxo-alcohol capacity that is transforming China into a self-sufficient market, have played pivotal roles in this uncertainty. 
The market has also witnessed an increasingly strained relationship between the 2-EH and plasticizers markets due to regulatory changes and new developments in non-phthalates. In light of these pressures: 
  1. How will organisations deal with the threat of overcapacity? 

  2. What strategies should you be implementing to overcome the challenges facing this evolving marketplace?

It is crucial for those involved in the oxo-alcohols value chain to have the latest information on global market dynamics to ensure business sustainability and to stay ahead of the competition. This conference will address the issues you are currently dealing with and give you the tools to develop an effective strategy to overcome them.
