France Petrochemicals Report Q2 2015

France Petrochemicals Report Q2 2015

French petrochemicals output growth will slow in 2015 following a relatively strong year in 2014 due topoorer household consumption and sluggish export markets, according to BMI's latest FrancePetrochemicals Report. While Total's closure of 400,000tpa of ethylene capacity in 2015 is regarded as thefinal major plant closure over the medium-term, the reduction of capacity since the 2008 financial crisismeans that in volume terms the industry is unlikely to return to its previous strength.

After a stagnation of activity in 2013, European chemical production grew by 1.9% in 2014 with output setto rise by a further 2.0% in 2015. Growth slowed over 2014, reflecting a weak economic recovery and aweakening in demand from consumer industries. However, the structure of growth is changing with organicchemicals - including polymers and aromatics - growing very little in 2015, while inorganics takeprominence.
