United Arab Emirates Petrochemicals Report Q2 2016

BMI View: The UAE is set to face a challenging year as it doubles output at the massive Borougepetrochemicals complex. The combination of an end to sanctions on Iran, a Chinese slowdown and SaudiArabia's opening of its massive Sadara complex will work to keep petrochemicals prices low. Meanwhile,the UAE's dominant ethane feedstock will struggle to compete with falling oil-derived naphtha feedstockused by rivals in Asia and Europe.

Ethane availability and feedstock pricing will remain key to the growth of the UAE's petrochemicalindustry. Rising feedstock prices, limited ethane feedstock availability, increasing construction costs and theanticipation of slower demand growth in key markets are expected to lead to a decline in the number of newproject announcements. A significant risk factor for the UAE's petrochemicals industry is its currentreliance on naphtha feedstock.
