On March 1, 2022, IHS Markit ENR merged with S&P Global Platts to form a new division called S&P Global Commodity Insights. The merger combined two of the most highly respected organizations in the global energy, chemicals, and commodity markets.
S&P Global Commodity Insights offers end-to-end petrochemical market expertise—from feedstocks to end-use chemical markets, as well as transportation/delivery systems. The new organization brings together the speed of Platts’ short-term market reports, benchmark pricing, anda growing list of lower-carbon price assessments, with the power of IHS Markit’s short-term, medium-and long-term market analysis and forecasts.

Other events focus on covering just the basics, but in a complex world, we know basic just isn’t good enough.
Volatile energy markets, war, pandemic-weakened economies, supply chain disruptions, decarbonization, and the energy transition. Today’s challenges demand a trusted foundation of chemical market insights combined with fresh ideas—and new voices—from disruptive influencers. You need essential content in context and a 360° view of supply chains and end markets to navigate volatile markets. This is something the 38th World Petrochemical Conference by S&P Global is uniquely positioned to deliver.
At WPC 2024, we will cover what you expect—a comprehensive outlook on the economy, energy and feedstocks, commodity chemicals, intermediates, specialty chemicals, and related customer markets, but we won’t stop there. We will elevate the conversation beyond basic chemical supply and demand to discuss critical supply chains, feedstocks, financials, geopolitical factors, and emissions, because volatile markets can be managed—if you know the risks.
Only WPC 2024 will deliver end-to-end chemical market outlooks, end-use market analysis, and the story on mobility, energy transition, and climate strategies to help you seize opportunities and manage risk.
