TAIPEI (ICIS)--Thailand’s polypropylene (PP) production will be stagnant this year because domestic plants are already running at full capacity, the country’s industry associations said as the Asia Petrochemical Industry Conference (APIC) ended on Friday.
Thailand produced about 1.756m of PP last year, said the Petrochemical Industry Club and the Federation of Thai Industries in their annual report.
Internal end-user market demand for PP would be supported by high growth in the automotive segment, the associations said.
The report was presented at the annual APIC, which was held in Taipei on 9-10 May.
