Iran Petrochemicals Report Q2 2016

Iran Petrochemicals Report Q2 2016

Iran is set to ramp up petrochemicals exports following the ending of international sanctions in January. Theeffects are likely to be global with a large amount of basic chemicals entering the market, leading todownward pressure on prices. However, the country still faces an uphill struggle with inward investmentdue to infrastructural and regulatory hurdles and will remain behind its Arabian Gulf competitors.

The country's petrochemicals production capacity was around 60mn tonnes per annum (tpa) in 2015, but theshortage of natural gas as feedstock, ageing production units and the problem of sanctions, which reducedexports, have caused petrochemical complexes to work at lower capacities. Iran's petrochemical outputgrew 10% year-on-year to 44.4mn tonnes in FY2014/15, implying capacity utilisation of 74%. Iran alsoincreased petrochemical production by up to 2mn tonnes to about 46mn tonnes in 2015, but mostly byincreasing feedstock and not launching new petrochemical plants.
