Recently published research from Business Monitor International, "Turkey Petrochemicals Report Q4 2014", is now available at Fast Market Research

[USPRwire, Wed Sep 17 2014] The short-term outlook for the Turkish petrochemicals industry is challenging, with the depreciation of the lira and the rising cost of credit dampening domestic demand, but export growth and low stocks should help lift demand going forward, according to BMI's latest Turkey Petrochemicals Report.

Buying demand for polymers appeared to decrease going into Q314 amid increased production and slower than expected market growth. Turkish petrochemicals demand will be robust in the coming years after a temporary slowdown in 2013. The key drivers will be strong construction and autos industry growth. However, in the short-term the pressures Turkey has felt over 2013 and the first half of 2014 will dampen the growth of the local petrochemicals market. The Turkish lira has suffered a major depreciation. In the face of mounting policy uncertainty and rising US bond yields, project financing from domestic banks will subsequently become more expensive as Turkish banks are heavily reliant on international credit. This will have knock-on effects on industrial consumption of petrochemicals projects as well as the wider economic context.
