France Petrochemicals Report Q2 2016

France Petrochemicals Report Q2 2016

The fundamentals of the French petrochemicals market are mixed. The decline in France's industrialcompetitiveness over the last ten years is a fundamental issue facing the country. However, domesticautomotive producers have made significant steps to improve their competitiveness, which should helpassist with bolstering demand in engineering plastics.

France's petrochemicals industry has undergone a process of structural adjustment to improve cost margins.

However, it has been behind the curve compared to other Western European states that have seenconsolidation and capacity reductions in recent years. Resistance from labour unions has largely beenresponsible for the slow process of dealing with the sector's lack of integration and poor economies of scale.

However, delocalisation is inevitable for the petrochemicals industry, just as it is across the industrialsector.
