BMI's Thailand Petrochemicals Report Q113 examines the industry's attempts to add value to basic chemicals production following a surge in olefins and polymers capacities over recent years. We look at capacity expansion plans as well as Thailand's leading petrochemicals producer PTT Global Chemical
(PTTGC)'s long-term investment strategy.

In 2013, the petrochemicals industry will benefit from growth in monoethylene glycol (MEG),
acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene and solution styrene butadiene rubber (SSBR). Increased synthetic rubber production will tap into the growing Asian market for automotive tyres, while MEG will feed the polyester chain. Speciality chemicals are also set to be boosted by growth in polyacetal capacity, which will serve the engineering plastics sector.

PTTGC, Thailand's leading petrochemicals producer, is planning capital expenditure (capex) of US$4.5bn over 2013-2017 to help it achieve projected revenues of THB800bn by 2022, with a focus on expanding capacity in commodity-grade polymer products, high-value-added specialty plastics and green polymers. High-value-added polymers and specialty products are projected to account for 20-25% of the company's READ MORE >
