New Study: Indonesia Petrochemicals Report Q1 2016

In BMI's Asia Pacific Petrochemicals Risk/Reward Index, Indonesia ranks 10th out of 12 countries with a score of 52.0 out of 100, unchanged since the previous quarter. It sits 9.5 points behind Australia and 5.1 points ahead of the Philippines, indicating that its ranking is unlikely to change in the short term. Plans for capacity expansion, coupled with improved risk, could raise the country's rating, but BMI thinks it highly unlikely that it will close the gap with other Asian states

The Indonesian petrochemicals industry is witnessing continued investor interest with a surge of capacity over the next five years set to make it more self-sufficient. However, BMI's latest Indonesia Petrochemicals Report warns that the country's petrochemicals market is set to witness a downturn amid weaker growth, particularly as a result of a downturn in the automotive sector.

Petrochemicals output is set to decline in coming months as a result of the overhaul of facilities operated by Chandra Asri Petrochemical (CAP). The company is targeting a revenue increase of at least 30% in 2016 when its annual production of ethylene and propylene is expected to increase by up to 860,000tpa and 470,000tpa, respectively, from 600,000tpa and 320,000tpa in 2015. This should increase Indonesia's self-sufficiency. Other planned capacity includes a new synthetic rubber plant, PT Synthetic Rubber Indonesia, a joint venture between CAP and French tyre maker Compagnie Financiere du Groupe Michelin which is due to come onstream by 2017. The firm will also partner with BP develop a condensate splitter to produce naphtha. Indonesia currently imports all its naphtha requirement and the splitter is set to reduce imports to 60% of local demand. The splitter is due to come onstream by 2019.
