BMI View: Brexit has cast considerable uncertainty over the British petrochemicals industry's future withthe possibility of an end to European single market access and Scottish independence leading to likelycapacity cuts. The sector is benefitting in the short term from a boost in external competitiveness as a resultof the fall in the value of the pound. In the long term, if it can maintain tariff-free access to mainlandmarkets and the US continues exporting ethane from its shale resources, the UK could remain stronger thanEU states. However, this is based on many requisites that will have to be met if the industry is to surviveand thrive.Before the Brexit vote, the UK petrochemicals industry was witnessing a contraction in output. Productionindices showed that petrochemicals output fell by an average of 3.4% in January-April 2016, whilechemicals output declined 3.8%. Rubber and plastic production saw a more marginal decline of 0.1%.The UK's Chemical Industries Association (CIA) had noted that businesses expected sales volumes toremain or exceed 2015 levels when there was 5% growth with growth led by exports, but its surveys wereconducted at a time when the referendum result was expected to confirm the status quo. Producers in thechemicals sector overwhelmingly supported remaining in the EU and some warned that leaving the unionwould cause significant disruption that could damage the sector.
