Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/g2pmf8/mexico) has announced the addition of the “Mexico Petrochemical Market Opportunity Analysis” report to their offering.

The Mexican market for the resins ABS, SBR, SBS, PBT, and POE was valued at $1.06 billion in 2013

The revenue is expected to reach $1.64 billion in 2020, driven by the investments of end-user industries such as automotive, electronics, and appliance companies, which are installing plants in Mexico, attracted by its low production costs and strategic geography. This research service analyzes the Mexican market (in revenue and volume) for ABS, SBR, SBS, PBT and POE. It offers pricing trends and forecasts, export and import analyses, revenue by vertical markets (transportation, building and construction, healthcare, electronics, consumer goods and others) and competitive analysis, with base year 2013, and forecasts from 2014 to 2020.

This research service analyzes the Mexican market for the resins acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), styrene butadiene rubber (SBR), styrene butadiene styrene (SBS), polybutylene terephthalate (PBT), and polyolefin elastomers (POE).

ABS, SBR, and SBS are locally produced but also have high import rates. PBT and POE are completely imported.

Increasing vehicle production is the main driver in the market. Vehicles are becoming lighter, increasing demand for plastic materials to replace metal parts, but decreasing the amount of rubber required per car.

Another important driver is the ongoing investments of automotive, electronics, and appliance companies, which are installing plants in Mexico, drawn by its low production costs and strategic geography.

The main competitors are SABIC, Styrolution, Negromex (INSA), Dynasol, and Dow Chemical. However, more competitors are entering the market, especially from Asia, making the market more competitive and decreasing the average price of these resins in the market.
