London (PRWEB) November 3, 2005
ICIS, the world’s largest information provider for the global chemical industry, launches ‘Petrochemicals – A Beginners’ Course’ in India on the 7th December 2005. To be held in Mumbai, the course is intended to give an introduction to the petrochemical industry, a sector which is expected to see considerable growth in India over the next few years.
Bullish growth projections for the Indian economy have prompted new interest in petrochemical projects. It is forecast that India will become the third largest polymer consumer globally by 2010. Indian textile exports are projected to jump from $14bn in 2003 to $50bn in 2010 following the end of quotas. However, this growth will become more dependent on imported gas and oil, leading to the challenges of managing volatile raw material costs.
'Petrochemicals – A Beginners’ Course' explains the fundamental relationship between oil products and petrochemicals, and then how petrochemicals are used in the many everyday consumer products which India will manufacture for local demand and export. The petrochemical business and fundamentals that drive markets are covered, providing delegates with the tools to be able to apply their knowledge to the bigger picture.
“ICIS training courses bring clarity and focus to often difficult concepts and ideas,” commented Christopher Flook, ICIS training Publisher. “Our training seminars are designed for newcomers to the industry, analysts and service providers, as well as product specialists who want to refresh their knowledge of the big picture. Delegates will learn the basics from both business and technical standpoints and how oil and petrochemicals impact one another as they are increasingly used in consumer production,” he said.
ICIS training will run this course at The Taj Mahal Palace & Tower Hotel, Mumbai on the 7th December 2005. Training will also take place in Shanghai, 25 November 2005 at the Four Seasons Hotel. Other successful events have been held in Amsterdam, Singapore and Dubai. Visit http://www.icis.com/training for further details and registration information.
