Germany Petrochemicals Report Q2 2016

Germany's petrochemicals industry is seeing a modest but strengthening market recovery amid a cyclicaleconomic upturn. Much of the growth has been generated by low oil prices and the positive effects of theslide in the value of the euro against the US dollar. However, if the sector is to remain competitive, it willneed to invest in research and development in high-value products.

The market trend suggests that a weaker euro, coupled with slower growth in the eurozone, is having animpact on the structure of the external market.
