BMI’s Bulgaria Petrochemicals Report assesses the trends that will affect the country’s relatively small petrochemicals base. It also examines the impact of the business environment on investors’ risk management strategies and the chances of capacity growth over the medium-term.

In 2012, Bulgaria had olefins capacities of 450,000 tonnes per annum (tpa) ethylene, 80,000tpa propylene and 50,000tpa butadiene. In terms of aromatics and intermediates, it had capacities of 35,000tpa benzene,
40,000tpa styrene and 35,000tpa paraxylene. It also had capacities of 120,000tpa low-density polyethylene (LDPE), 80,000tpa polypropylene (PP), 70,000tpa polystyrene (PS) and 35,000tpa styrene butadiene rubber.

The performance of the Bulgarian petrochemicals industry declined through 2012 as the country felt the full force of the economic downturn and the eurozone sovereign debt crisis. The average index for chemicals and chemical products manufacturing fell 8.3% y-o-y in the January-July period of 2012 following 15.0% growth in 2011, while the index for rubber and plastic production fell 4.1% following 3.0% growth in the previous year.
