BMI's Canada petrochemicals report examines how the country's petrochemicals industry is overcoming challenges related to feedstock access and growing global competitiveness. It assesses recent developments and trends in the industry and looks at the enormous potential for growth,
particularly in the under-exploited propylene product chain. It also analyses the role shale gas will play in the rapidly evolving North American petrochemicals market.

Canada's chemicals and resins industry was driven by domestic demand in 2012, with BMI estimating domestic sales growth of 6.0%, while exports rose just 0.5%. Around 75% of chemicals output is exported, with the US accounting for 75% of exports. The Canadian petrochemicals industry is highly sensitive to trends in the US, although the EU market is also prominent. The domestic market accounted for 80% of the growth in chemicals industry sales. While exports were back to near their pre-crisis 2007 peak and plateauing in 2012, domestic sales remained 25% below their previous peak and growth will need to strengthen in the near term to assist with a return to full operating rates.
