China continues to be the leading growth driver for the Polyurethanes industry and considerable investment is focused here, as future growth expectations continue to exceed 10% pa. The industry has become increasingly global over the past 10-15 years and this means changes and shocks in one part of the world tend to have an impact on other regions.
Is the slowdown of the US economy going to influence Chinese growth this year? Are oil prices at over US$120/bbl setting a new floor for raw materials? Is innovation going to be the key to overcome future cost challenges and to gain competitive advantage?
