There continue to be mixed results in the Philippines petrochemicals industry with plastic output contracting in H115, although rubber and basic chemicals reported strong growth. Problems associated with the start-up of new plants have not helped matters, but this latest Philippines Petrochemicals Report envisages strengthening performance in 2015 as JG Summit Petrochemicals Corporation (JGSPC) ramps up capacity utilisation at its new cracker complex and economic prospects improve.

In H115, the value of production index (VaPI) for basic chemicals and rubber improved following a poor performance in 2014 with growth of 52.9% and 5.9% y-o-y, respectively. However, plastic fell by an average of 7.2% y-o-y in the first half. Production was lower than expected due to problems bringing into operation JGSPC's complex with 320,000tpa ethylene and 190,000tpa propylene.
