Has your PET or R-PET business been feeling the pinch? Have market conditions and competition had a negative effect on profits?

With the circular economy set to shape the future of the PET and wider plastics industry, leading companies and members of the PET industry are eager to find out how best to change their strategy in this era of notable change. With the agenda covering hot topics in the media surrounding ocean waste, 100% recycled material in brands and China’s R-PET import bans, the 2018 ICIS event will guide producers, traders, converters, end-users and recyclers to make smart decisions in what is set to be one of the industry’s most challenging transition periods to date.

With a globalised system and PET and R-PET regulations continually evolving across the board, March is the perfect time for you to join ICIS experts and your peers alike, to discuss market trends, technological advances and the challenges ahead for 2018 and beyond.

Watch Senior Editor Caroline Murray and Markets Reporter Pavle Popovic discuss this and other talking points which were significant at the ICIS PET conference from 7-8 March in Berlin.
