BMI View: Although Israeli petrochemical prices declined in 2015, margins improved as a result of falling naphtha costs even as sales stagnated. Israel's refinery sector has capitalised on imports of oil from Kurdistan as well as lower global oil prices, which has been fed through the production chain. With economic growth set to pick up in 2016, the outlook for the country's petrochemicals market is brightening, although capacity constraints will limit volumes.

Despite 1.7% manufacturing growth and improving economic performance, the petrochemicals industry witnessed lacklustre growth in 2015. In 10M15, plastic and rubber output declined 0.7% y-o-y, compared to 0.8% growth in 2014. Meanwhile chemicals declined 0.1%. In 9M15, Israel's main petrochemicals producer, Bazan Group, reported that aromatics output was down 4.7% to 365,000 tonnes, but polymers production grew 1.5% to 481,000 tonnes, indicating that the industry's performance varied across market segments.
