Saudi Arabia Petrochemicals Report Q1 2016

Saudi Arabia Petrochemicals Report Q1 2016

BMI View: The opening of the mixed-feed Sadara petrochemicals complex should help boost SaudiArabia's external competitiveness, helping to leverage low oil prices to its favour with greater use ofnaphtha feedstock. However, a challenging Asian market environment means margins will continue to comeunder pressure due to softening product prices.

Growth in Saudi Arabia's petrochemicals capacity will come at a time when China - Saudi Arabia's keyexport market - is ramping up its capacities, including a total of 3mn tonnes per annum (tpa) of ethylene,while the country is seeing slower consumption growth. Added to the supply situation is the potential forIranian output to enter the market as sanctions are eased.
