06.02.2007 - 07.02.2007 / In Mould Decorating 2007
Established as the longest running IMD conference, In-Mould Decorating 2007 is set to be our biggest and best yet. The conference will feature OEM case studies, advances in materials and manufacturing technology which will enable new effects to be achieved cost-effectively, innovative market applications for IMD, and of course, valuable networking opportunities.
CREON takes pleasure in informing you about III Moscow International Conference "PET 2007", which would be held on the 19th of February 2007 at Baltchug Kempinski Hotel, Moscow.
The modern Russian market of PET originates from commissioning of the first domestic plants producing PET-preform in impetuous 90es. For the past 10-15 years PET market at the territory of CIS passed the important steps of development. The total consumption of PET at the territory of former USSR leveled up to 700 thousand tons per year and is still going to increase. Nowadays there are domestic companies, which not only keep the leading position at initial market but also expand their influence to the neighboring regions. The major consumer of the polymer in CIS is packaging industry. The other important sector consuming polyesters is the light industry. But the last is still in crisis situation and has the weak influence on the PET processing output.
The increasing demand for PET goods stimulates both independent companies and major processors of PET to create the inhouse feedstock supply, the PET chips production. It should be noted that in 2003 the initial market was 100% supplied by import production due to the absence of domestic producers of this kind of production. Though at the present time there are two plants functioning with total capacity of more than 140 thousand tons per year. In the nearest couple of years the additional facilities would be commissioned. The capacity of the new plant is amounted to 200 thousand tons of the polymer per year. Moreover, the development of domestic PET production would continue. And some new projects scheduled to be performed till 2010-2012 were announced.
The "PET" conference, annually organized by CREON, becomes the immutable place for the meeting of almost all market participants: suppliers and customers of PET goods (perform, films and fibers); polyethylene terephtalate producers and traders; supplies of equipment for polymer production and processing, and other stakeholders. The conferences held in 2005 and 2006 hosted the representatives of more than 200 companies. Among them there are: Alpla, Br?ckner, Dow, Gneuss, HUSKY, KP Chemicals, LG International, NEO Group, Nestle Waters, Netstal, P.E.T. Engineering, Petrochemical Holding, Reliance Industries, Resilux, Retal Industries, SDT Group, Uhde Inventa-Fischer, UOP Sinco, Vinmar, Zimmer, AK BARS BANK, Alphatehform, AMIPAK CENTR, APG Vostochnaya Evropa, Europlast, Gasprom Neft, New Polymers Plant SENEG (member of Association of Plants Europlast), Klassika-PET, LUKOIL-Neftehim, KOMITEX, Mega-Plast, Mogilevkhimvolokno, Polihimservice, Selena, Serebryany Istochnik, SIBUR Holding, Baltika Breweries, Etalon-Plastservice, YuMSK, Yuniplast and others. The leading world companies become sponsors and partners of the event.
The detail analysis of current state and development prospects of the world and CIS polyethylene terephtalate market would be presented at the conference "PET 2007". The producers and importers of granulated PET will give their reports. The special attention will be devoted to the reports of PET package (perform, films) producers, as well as to the modern development tends of packaging materials and to the companies' plans concerning business development within the country and expansion abroad. The present condition of polyester staple branch of industry and PET processing sector will also be discussed.
CREON takes pleasures in inviting you to take part in the IV Moscow International Conference "Polyethylene 2007". The conference will be held on February, 20, 2007 at the hotel "Baltschug Kempinski Moscow".
Polyethylene was and is going to be the most important polymer, taking the first place for production output and demand among all large commodity plastics. The world capacity of polyethylene production increased up to 70 million tons per year, the polyethylene output in 2005 amounted to 65 million per year. At the same time the world demand increase by 5% per year, and Asian region is going to become the world center of polyethylene market growth. At the world scene Russian and CIS producers do not play the important role now. However, the rapid increase of polyethylene production, domestic hydrocarbon raw material supply and plans of first-rate vertically-integrated companies for polyolefin branch development can result in substantial increase of CIS countries role at the world arena within 5-10 years.
Within the past few years the dynamic growth of polyethylene production volumes was registered in Russia. This is the result of the increase of demand for this production from polyethylene processing enterprises, increasing polymer and metallic-polymer tubes production, production of films, packaging materials, etc.
Nevertheless, in spite of production growth, the polyethylene demand exceeds the supply at the Russian market. The current domestic output of polyethylene is not enough, that can be confirmed by export decrease and import increase for this product. In 2005 Russian producers of polyethylene decreased export by more than 40 per cent in comparison with the same values of 2003, down to 160,8 thousand tons. In 2005 polyethylene import reached 196,6 thousand tons that is 1,9 times more than 2002. The main import thread is formed by the polyethylene grades, not produced in Russia which are used for the production of high-tech goods.
