Ethane availability and feedstock pricing will remain key to the growth of the UAE's petrochemical industry. Rising feedstock prices, limited ethane feedstock availability, increasing construction costs and the anticipation of slower demand growth in key markets are expected to lead to a decline in the number of new project announcements. A significant risk factor for the UAE's petrochemicals industry is its current reliance on naphtha feedstock. The focus for the country in the immediate term will be cost control as the primarily ethane-fed industry contends with improved competitiveness of naphtha-fed competitors due to low oil prices. The UAE's Borouge facility will see output grow to full capacity in 2017, following operational setbacks in Q116 due to a month-long cracker shutdown. However, weaker basic chemicals and fertiliser prices have undermined profitability in recent months. The country will be looking to diversifying and adding value to downstream production with the development of engineering and plastic processing plants.

- The start-up of a new 70,000tpa cross-linked low density polyethylene (XLPE) plant, the final part of the Borouge 3 complex, was completed in Q216.

- A decline in basic chemical and fertiliser prices had a negative impact on Borouge's profitability in Q216, but this is likely to be outweighed by rising output in coming quarters.
