There is a worrying trend for Taiwanese petrochemicals producers to move investment in basic chemicals to mainland China and South East Asia. Unless Taiwan can diversify and specialise to add value to the olefins production it currently possesses, the industry is likely to fall behind and lose its competitive edge.

The Taiwanese petrochemicals industry's recovery in 2015 began to tail off as the industry was affected by the slowdown in China. In the first 10 months of 2015, the chemicals products index grew 0.4% y-o-y and rubber grew 0.6%, but plastic declined 3.7% with the sector reversing the gains it made in the previous year.

The trend reflected a 0.6% decline in manufacturing, caused by falling orders from mainland China as well as the effects of water restrictions for producers in response to the drought situation.
