Includes 3 FREE quarterly updatesThe Czech petrochemicals industry is on course for solid growth in 2014 and beyond in line with growth in key domestic plastic and chemicals converters, which primarily serve export markets. However, BMI's latest Czech Republic Petrochemicals Report warns that recovery is tenuous and depends on external markets and feedstock prices.

BMI estimates that in the first five months of 2014 chemicals output was up 7.5% year-on-year (y-o-y) while rubber and plastic was up 10.8% y-o-y. This was a marked improvement on 2013 growth rates when chemicals shrank 6.8% and rubber and plastics grew 4.6%. In H112, Unipetrol's petrochemicals segment profitability increased to CZK1.85bn from CZK1.41bn in H113. Improvement was driven by significant increase of sales volumes by 12% y-o-y from 792,000 tonnes in H113 to 885,000 tonnes in H114, due to higher utilisation of the steam-cracker and polyolefin units. In terms of volume, polyethylene (PE) sales were up 12.6% y-o-y to 152,000 tonnes while polypropylene (PP) sales grew 11.6% to 135,000 tonnes.
