Above-trend growth is forecast for the British petrochemicals market, amid improved economic performance. However, a strong pound and a lack of competitiveness mean that British plastic and rubber output is down, thereby fuelling petrochemicals imports.

The British chemicals industry as a whole is in transition to higher-value, lower-volume production, having closed many basic chemicals and polymers capacities in recent years. This should put the industry in good stead for profitability, although existing petrochemicals facilities will continue to feel the challenge of feedstock prices in competing with US and Middle Eastern rivals. In 9M15, British chemicals output grew by an average of 6.1% y-o-y while rubber and plastic output declined 2.8%.
