The article reports that a major change is about to impact the supply chain for petrochemicals and polymers. The focus of this change will be the Middle East, where enormous quantities of new production will be coming on stream. But new capacity is also expected to come online in China, India and other Asian countries. Yu Jing, of the China International Chemical Consulting Corporation, forecasts that China's net ethylene import demand will stabilize at current levels until 2010.
