Japan Petrochemicals Q1 2018

Japan Petrochemicals Q1 2018

BMI View: The surge in Japanese real GDP growth in Q217 was ostensibly driven by domestic demand, but the ongoing recovery in global growth remains a key supportive factor. We have revised up our forecast for Japan's 2017 real GDP growth to 1.8% from 1.3% previously, which would mark the fastest pace of growth since 2013. Strong profitability and high levels of business confidence could sustain above-potential real GDP growth in H217, but rising oil prices and growing domestic economic distortions lead us to maintain our 0.5% growth forecast for 2018.
