Primeval plastics and synthetic rubber are important input materials for many industries, especially plastics and automobile industry. The development of the polymer industry relates to the petrochemical industry and is affected by the price fluctuation, supply and demand for the main raw materials like crude oil, gas. China takes the lead in thermoplastic production, with an output of 92.1 tons in 2016. In 2016, global sales of polymer-based products reached 851 billion USD, up 6.2% compared to 2015. Global synthetic rubber production and consumption has been on the upward trend in recent years, much greater than those of natural rubber.
In Vietnam, the oil refinery sector has just newly-fledged, having only Dung Quat oil refinery in operation. Plastic material and additive production in 9M/2017 were estimated at 915 thousand tons, up 32.8% over the same period in 2016 (689 thousand tons). In the first 9 months of 2017, the domestic consumption of plastic materials reached 4,575 thousand tons, up 19.3% over the same period in 2016. The demand for plastic resins has increased, resulting in a sharp increase in plastic resin import volume between 2012 and 2016 with a CAGR of 19%. Opec Plastics is a leading company among top importers of plastic raw materials in 9M/ 2017. In recent years, Vietnam’s plastic industry has been highly appreciated in terms of growth speed compared to ASEAN countries .
