South Korea Petrochemicals Q1 2018

BMI View: Advanced estimates indicated that South Korea's real GDP expanded by 3.6% y-o-y in Q317 versus the 2.7% y-o-y recorded in Q217. We have upgraded our real GDP forecasts for both 2017 and 2018 to 3.2% and 3.0%, respectively (from 2.8% and 2.9% previously), and expect the manufacturing sector to remain the main driver of growth, while the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics will provide a one-off boost to tourism. However, we note that structural domestic issues will continue to weigh on domestic demand.
