The Egyptian petrochemicals industry has benefitted greatly from depreciation and the lack of foreign currency that emerged as the authorities acted to halt the decline of the Egyptian pound. With access to locally available feedstock, petrochemicals producers were able to raise production and serve local demand, even at times of slack demand. This will mark a temporary reprieve and stability is likely to be restored in 2016, alongside market growth. A revival in local consumption and sustained exchange rate weakness would support the planned massive expansion of capacities over the next few years.

While local production is benefitting from a weaker exchange rate and import difficulties, it has not escaped a squeeze on margins as cost pressures have risen. The local market will be sluggish, although depreciation will favour local producers. The automotive sector remains in a slump, which is undermining consumption of a range of rubber and plastic products used in car manufacturing. However, construction activity is holding up and should help spur some growth in segments such as PVC.
