▶ While annual steam cracker turnarounds are expected to lower olefins production, fresh polymer production is expected to weaken markets and change market flows.

▶ An early emphasis to use LPG for cracking could result in higher olefins production and lower aromatics production.

▶ China’s ban on plastic waste imports in 2018 could increase demand for virgin material amid the country’s efforts to clean up its environment especially for reducing air pollution.
