The outlook for the South African petrochemicals industry has worsened due to the country's continued poor economic performance as well as the threat of strike action within the petrochemicals sector and related sectors, both upstream and in end markets. In spite of the decline in the value of the rand, the sector is struggling with low levels of competitiveness and weighed down by poor consumption, although past problems with electricity power supply have eased. Sub-2% growth is expected over the short-term with little significant growth expected over the five year forecast period in spite of the growth in capacity in the C3 chain. Basic chemicals output grew 2.6% y-o-y in the first five months of 2016, reversing the trend in 2015 when full year output fell 0.6%. This was above the trend seen in the overall manufacturing sector which grew 1.0% y-o-y over the period. Plastic also fared better, growing 0.5% y-o-y compared to a 1.9% fall. However, rubber saw a 1.6% decline. Nevertheless, going into Q216 the rubber sector appeared to pick up while the plastic segment lost steam, demonstrating the volatility within the petrochemicals sector.
