Abstract:

Belgium s export sector has traditionally been dominated by relatively low technology goods supplying downstream processors in Germany and elsewhere. However, increased investment throughout the value chain, particularly in products utilised by the automotive industry, will improve the external competitiveness of the petrochemicals sector. ...Belgium is the European country most exposed to an influx of petrochemicals from Iran, when sanctions are anticipated to be lifted in ----, as Antwerp is set to be the main port of entry. A flood of Iranian polymers would undermine Belgian petrochemicals margins, although on the upside Ineos ethylene handling facilities amounting to the equivalent of -mn tpa of ethylene capacity could stimulate downstream growth if Iran is unable to ramp up polymer production. In ----, Belgium had ethylene capacity of -.--mntpa with intermediate and aromatics capacities of ---,---tpa benzene, ---,---tpa ethylbenzene, -.--mntpa ethylene dichloride (EDC), ---,---tpa vinyl chloride monomer (VCM) and ---,---tpa xylenes. ...Nevertheless, it retained its fourth place in the European rankings, -.- points behind the UK and the Netherlands and -.- points ahead of France. While it is unlikely to rise up the rankings over coming quarters, it could increase its lead over neighbouring France, where capacities are in the process of being cut.
