United Kingdom Petrochemicals Q4 2018

Key View:

In spite of growing fears of a no-deal Brexit as stalling negotiations are pushed to the wire, petrochemicals producers anddownstream processors have not indicated any withdrawal of capacity in the short term. The British plastics industry faces marketvolatility and higher raw material prices over the short term, but in the long-term there is little certainty over trade and regulation.The effects on investment mean the UK's petrochemicals industry's competitiveness in value-added, high-margin products is beingeroded by risk perceptions, although Ineos - headed by a supporter of Brexit - is considering investment in a new plant, although itsdecision may be dependent on government assistance.
