Kuwait Petrochemicals Report Q2 2016

As an export-oriented sector, Kuwait's petrochemicals industry will be highly dependent on externalmarkets, particularly Asia. The global market downturn is affecting strategic decisions by thesector. Karo was looking to develop its production facilities and improve the performance and flexibility ofits aromatics complex and Petrochemicals Industries Company (PIC) is examining the viability of morearomatics plants. However, there has been no further progress on these plans.

Externalities will be crucial to the performance of the Kuwaiti petrochemicals industry and unless theindustry sustains a competitive edge, it will suffer diminishing margins on production. While thepredominantly naphtha-fed sector has taken advantage of the recent decline in crude prices, it may strugglewith the surge in output from Iran following sanctions relief as well as low-cost output from US shale-fedproducers. Yet, it still has better prospects than most petrochemicals producers in the Arabian Gulf.
