Canada’s petrochemical industry is on the brink of huge growth as it finally steps out of the US’ shadow, becoming a North American petrochemical powerhouse in its own right.

“Capital expenditures in the sector will jump by 30% this year, to $3.4 billion, after a decade of very limited expansion.” – CIAC

The CIAC estimates that the industry could attract up to $10 billion in new investments over the next 10 years, thanks to the availability of North American shale gas and the continent’s other natural resources.

“We had an extremely successful North American Petrochemicals conference in Houston in 2014,” said Conference Director Lise Thibult. “Given the changing landscape in Canada, it made absolute sense to offer a dedicated market place for petrochemical companies to meet up and address their challenges. We’re excited to see that now is the time for prosperous investments in North America, and it’s great to see such expert decision-makers registered to attend the meeting this year.”

“We’re seeing incredible opportunities arising for growth in the petrochemical industry across Canada – and that’s great news for Canadian companies and foreign investors,” said Lise.
