Hungary Petrochemicals Report Q2 2015 - New Market Study Published

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Fri Feb 20 2015

The Hungarian petrochemicals industry remains an outperforme r in Central and Eastern Europe. S teady growth in output was reported for 2014 and we are optimistic that future growth will support continued expansion of capacities over the forecast period (to 2019).

The automotive industry is playing a major part in the country's plastics and rubber growth story with petrochemicals investment largely targeting the automotive supply sector. Production capacity in polyurethane used for car seating and synthetic rubber for tyres have has grown strongly with projects continuing to boost output. Hungary is highly specialised in the production of isocynates, used in the manufacturing of polyurethanes, and recent investment in chlorine recovery from the isocynates process has boosted the polyvinyl chloride (PVC) chain by Chinese-owned Borsodchem.

In the refining sector, which produces the naphtha feedstock used by the Hungarian petrochemicals sector, we forecast steady production of refined products to rise marginally to 181,000 barrels per day (b/d), leaving 55,000b/d to export once domestic demand of 125,500b/d are met. The incremental improvement in utilisation rates is something we see continuing for at least three more years (85.4% in 2015; 86.3% in 2016). It is a reflection of a modern, well-managed midstream sector in Hungary.
