据天然气资讯9月17日消息称,新冠肺炎疫情严重影响了2020年的全球经济。GlobalData称,亚洲主要经济体的增长预计将在2021年出现反弹,因为遏制措施和刺激方案可能会增加该地区的经济活动,推动石化产品需求。

GlobalData石油和天然气分析师John Paul Somavarapu表示:“该地区的产能增加主要集中在中国,目标是实现自给自足,以满足该国现有和不断增长的石化产品需求。其次是印度和印度尼西亚,它们也在利用它们不断增长的需求。疫情爆发和原油价格下跌促使两地区的石化巨头宣布项目推迟。处于早期开发阶段的项目可能会被推迟,因为企业希望重新评估自己的投资策略。”

由于各国政府为控制疫情大流行采取了封锁措施,亚洲的聚合物需求受到影响。不过,近期工业/商业活动的上升,以及经济的逐步重新开放,必将增加对聚合物的需求。由于需求疲软和制造业供应链降低了增长,建筑和汽车等关键最终用途领域的需求受到了影响。然而,来自包装和医疗保健部门的需求将维持该行业的增长。

索马瓦拉普总结说:“ COVID-19大流行是史无前例的,各公司已通过制定战略和实施严格措施来应对这种经济不确定性和增长疲软。公司将资本投资用于维持现有的资产基础,并对当前情况进行战略评估,并相应地安排发展项目。”

Growth across major Asian economies to drive petrochemicals demand in the region, says GlobalData

The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly impacted the global economy in 2020. Growth across key Asian economies is expected to rebound in 2021, as the containment measures and stimulus packages are likely to increase economic activities and drive petrochemicals demand in the region, says GlobalData.

John Paul Somavarapu, Oil and Gas Analyst at GlobalData, comments: “The regional capacity additions are largely concentrated in China, targeting self-sufficiency to meet the country’s existing and growing petrochemicals demand. China is followed by India and Indonesia, also capitalising Polymer demand in Asia was affected due to lockdown measures undertaken by governments to contain the COVID-19 pandemic. However, recent uptick in industrial/ business activities and gradual re-opening of economies are set to strengthen the demand for polymers. The demand from key end-use segments such as construction and automotive have been affected, as sluggish demand and manufacturing supply chains have lowered the growth. However, demand from packaging and healthcare sectors would sustain the growth of the industry.

Somavarapu concludes: “The COVID-19 pandemic is unprecedented and companies have responded by developing strategies and implementing stringent measures to battle this economic uncertainty and weakened growth. Companies are channeling their capital investments towards maintaining existing asset base and are undertaking strategic review of the current scenario and scheduling their growth projects accordingly.”
