Venezuela Petrochemicals Report 2016

Venezuela Petrochemicals Report 2016

BMI View: The Venezuelan petrochemicals industry may have benefitted from the impact of lower crude oilcosts on naphtha feedstock prices, but the local market is facing severe constraints due to the country'songoing economic problems and poor business environment. Petrochemicals converters are complaining ofa lack of affordable and available polymers to cater for demand with imports severely constrained by a lackof foreign exchange. The opposition win in Venezuela's December 2015 election has, however, raised hopesof reform that could improve the business environment.

In 2015, Venezuela had ethylene capacity of 600,000 tpa, propylene capacity of 400,000 tpa, 450,000 tpa ofpolyethylene (PE) capacity, 110,000 tpa polypropylene (PP), 70,000 tpa polystyrene (PS) and 130,000 tpapolyvinyl chloride (PVC). These remain unchanged from 2011 and are unlikely to change significantly overthe coming five years. Nevertheless, the country has significant competitive advantages that make it wellplaced to increase global sales, even in the event of the anticipated slackening of the petrochemicals market.
