Surviving the global slowdown while balancing energy efficiency & green concerns


Since the onset of the financial crisis, the silicone industry is seeing slower times compared to last year when prices rose to all time highs amidst high raw material costs and high demand. As the outlook for world economy remains uncertain though on the way to recovery, will raw material prices continue to remain at low levels ?

While China remain a bright spot with continued growth rates or overcapacity a key concern as the industry has seen more new players joining? As the competition heats up, how will China's silicone industry dynamics change in the future? As mature economies like South Korea and Japan take a beating from the current dire economic situation, how will producers in these markets survive the crisis? What lessons can the industry learn?


Amidst the backdrop of slower economic growth, there are renewed concerns over the safety of D5 silicones in Canada. How will the government's efforts to legislate against D5 silicones impact the industry? What are the wider implications of such a possible move?


In addition, the industry faces constant demands to be energy efficient and environmentally friendly, what kind of technology innovations and steps are
being taken to meet these concerns?


Innovation is key to develop the silicone industry to new heights. What is the growth potential for silicone applications in : LED, Personal Care & Construction industry?
