COVID-19: Managing disruption in the chemical industry

Article | March 30, 2020

The chemical industry is no stranger to disruption, from SARS to trade policy conflict and the financial crisis. Yet COVID-19 is unprecedented in its impact, creating a universal imperative for governments and businesses to take immediate action to protect their people. Unlike many other sectors, the chemical industry is not in a position to stop production and send workers home. Instead, it needs to strike the right balance between “social distancing” and keeping plants running to provide the basic necessities for society, as well as the antiseptics, disinfectants, protective packaging and more needed to fight the pandemic.

Petrochemical buyers, after a very difficult pandemic, can gain from China-driven deflation

Article | May 6, 2021

BUYERS OF polypropylene (PP) and other polymers and petrochemicals have had an incredibly difficult pandemic. Firstly, the converters and brand owners expected doom and gloom last March. At the time it seemed logical to expect a cratering of demand as the global economy pretty much imploded. Just looking at forecasts for GDP, parallels were drawn with the Global Financial Crisis when collapses in growth led to a cratering of polymers demand. The US is a good example where PP demand declined by 12% in 2008 over 2007. Demand then fell by a further 5% in 2009 over 2008.But what we all missed was the complete dislocation of polymers and petrochemicals demand from GDP. As economies registered historic declines, consumption went up. PP demand went through the roof, firstly for food packaging and hygiene applications.Then consumption for the durable goods made from PP also smashed through the rafters as we bought white goods (PP is used to make components of washing machines), consumer electronics (PP is used to make some electronic components) and carpets (PP fibres are used here).
