The Brazil Petrochemicals Report provides industry professionals and strategists, corporate analysts, petrochemical associations, government departments and regulatory bodies with independent forecasts and competitive intelligence on Brazil's petrochemicals industry.

BMI's Brazil Petrochemicals report for Q312 examines the enormous long-term potential of the local consumer market, but raises concerns over the potential impact of a rapid depreciation of the real against the US dollar over the short term.

We also examine the ways in which Brazil is tackling issues related to competitiveness, which has taken a hit because of the strong real and high naphtha feedstock costs. The report also analyses the growth and risk management strategies being employed by the leading players in the Brazilian petrochemicals sector, as they seek to maximise the tremendous growth opportunities on offer in the local market.

The Brazilian petrochemicals market has considerable potential for growth, with plastics consumption at 32kg per capita, which is less than one-third of the US and Western European level. Growth will be fuelled primarily by the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro READ MORE >
