Following a dismal performance in 2014 when political events undermined the domestic economy, the situation is stabilising and providing the basis for increased industrial consumption of petrochemicals products. However, the export-oriented petrochemicals industry will be more influenced by externalities and these could ultimately undermine growth and erode margins.

Having witnessed a surge in petrochemicals capacities over the past two years, the Thai petrochemicals industry will make a transition towards adding value to basic chemicals production as Thailand's leading petrochemicals producer PTT moves forward with its investment programme. Majors are bound to follow suit as they exploit the industry's full potential in order to tap into expanding South East Asian markets.

On the downside, the narrowing of the cost differential between ethane - Thailand's main feedstock - and naphtha will undermine the competitive advantage of Thai petrochemicals. Nevertheless, the industry is highly efficient and integrated, which should enable it to keep ahead of older, smaller naphtha-based producers in Asia. More importantly, producers are looking to utilise more naphtha from local refineries to improve cost competitiveness and respond to falling local gas supplies.

Project announcements by PTTGC have prompted us to revise our petrochemicals capacity forces with total polyethylene (PE) capacity set to rise to 4.23mn tpa by 2019, up 14% compared to 2014.
