FREE WEBINAR: The outlook for chemical demand in a world of ageing populations

This webinar has been broadcast.
A recording is now available on-demand.

Presented by Paul Hodges Chairman, International eCHEM
Paul Hodges is Chairman of International eChem (IeC). IeC was founded in 2001 and has built a reputation as trusted commercial advisers, with a global focus, to the chemical industry and its associated investment community. IeC’s clients include many of the world’s major companies and investors.

With the ever increasing change in the global economic demographics it is time to consider just what impact this has beyond the already accepted increase in healthcare costs.

Please note that it is completely free to attend this webinar and is one hour in duration.

The main areas this webinar will discuss are:
1. Changing demographic stats
2. Where the spending power is and how this is changing?
3. Impact on chemicals

Older people buy less, because they already own most of what they need, and they have less cash as they enter retirement.

They will typically do ‘the trip of a lifetime’ as they pay off the mortgage, but after this will tend to prefer seeing the grandchildren than rushing out to the shopping malls as they did when the kids were younger.

So growth will be very much slower, which has a big impact on chemical demand.
