France Petrochemicals Report Q4 2015

Strong petrochemicals growth performance in H115 in line with economic growth hides the underlyingstructural weaknesses in the sector and the wider economy, warns BMI's latest France PetrochemicalsReport. Slow growth in the automotive sector and a continued contraction in residential constructionindicate that the industry's performance could easily be thrown off-balance.

The French petrochemicals sector is enjoying the benefits of low naphtha costs as well as moderate demandgrowth. Plastic output rose 3.9% y-o-y in H115, although rubber production fell by around 1.1% y-o-y overthe period. Growth came in the context of economic growth generated by low inflation and low interestrates, which have lifted domestic consumption.
