South Korea Petrochemicals Report 2016

South Korea Petrochemicals Report 2016

South Korea's petrochemicals output growth will be challenged by dwindling demand from China, as wellas the deepening supply glut in the domestic petrochemicals market, which will push down prices andreduce margins. However, the industry's competitiveness coupled with its high value product slate shouldhelp producers maintain revenues going forward.

South Korea's integrated petrochemicals supply chain and high value added will enable it to capitalise ongrowing demand opportunities for petrochemicals in the region's emerging economies. For example,Indonesia's emergence as a regional auto manufacturing hub will increase its demand for synthetic rubberand engineering plastic over the next five years. India's sluggish capacity growth is also widening the gapbetween demand and domestic supply. These factors should help offset some of the decline in growth ofexports to China.
