Could China's coal-to-olefins polypropylene output spell trade flow changes in Asia?

With Yi-Jeng Huang

Polypropylene prices in China are dropping to levels not seen since the financial crisis that hit in March 2009. As the country's manufacturing sector slows down, demand for polypropylene materials has also waned. But that's not the only reason imports are dropping, says Platts editor Yi-Jeng Huang. In this video, he looks at how coal-to-olefin production is making an impact on China's polypropylene market - and what it could mean for producers in the region.
