BMI View: The South African petrochemicals industry witnessed a contraction in 2015 amid slow overall economic growth. The industry is in recession and it could take at least two years before returning to growth as key petrochemicals sectors flatline in a difficult operating environment. The sector is the worst affected area of an economy that is enduring sub-2% growth and falling competitiveness. In 2015, basic chemicals output fell 0.9% y-o-y, while plastic fell 2.2% and rubber declined 1.2%. However, some signs of recovery were seen in H215 with uptrends in plastics and chemicals. In terms of end-markets, the construction sector is enduring a poor performance, which is helping to depress demand for construction-related polymers. On the upside, the automotive industry enjoyed a boom in 2015 and rising local content in cars manufactured in South Africa offers further opportunities for consumption group.
