WPC 2019: Chemical earnings to plateau as margins weaken through 2022

Global chemical demand growth will moderate through 2022, earnings will plateau, and margins will weaken but remain historically strong, says Dave Witte, senior vice president and division head/energy and chemicals at IHS Markit. Speaking in San Antonio Wednesday morning at IHS Markit's World Petrochemical Conference (WPC) 2019, he noted that industry sentiment, widely optimistic one year ago, has shifted to caution.

WPC 2019: Uncertainty is widespread and growing

Uncertainty about the economic outlook, geopolitical risks, and their implications for the chemicals industry is pervasive and increasing, according to speakers at the 2019 IHS Markit World Petrochemical Conference (WPC), held this week in San Antonio, Texas. Global economic growth is decelerating but a recession is unlikely, as chemical earnings are expected to weaken from a peak in 2018 but remain at a high level.
