Business Review In 2020, the global economy has been severely impacted while facing the most severe economic crisis since the Great Depression in the 1930s under the global COVID-19 pandemic situation. Major developed economies have experienced negative growth without exception, while emerging markets and developing economies have also in general experienced negative GDP growth. Facing a complicated domestic and global situation, especially under the wrath of the COVID-19 pandemic, China adhered closely to the grand principle of seeking progress while maintaining stability and coordinated epidemic prevention and control and economic and social development to guarantee the restoration of economic stability. Throughout 2020, China’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) saw a growth of 2.3%, a decrease of 3.8 pp year-on-year, yet China was the only global major economy that managed to achieve positive economic growth in the year. China’s petrochemical faced enormous challenges especially in the first quarter. Price of major chemical products seen severe drop while both production and sales were in historic fall. Under the constraints of both resources and environment, the petrochemical industry was in short downward spiral.

Prospects: 1. Industry competition and development trends Currently, while the world is deep in the crisis of the pandemic, the global economy is expected to undergo a rapid recovery in the wake of swift vaccine research and roll-out. Even so, the ongoing global economic recovery was still clouded by the following challenges: the effectiveness of vaccine is still waiting to be seen; countries may withdraw their stimulus measures sooner; increasing trade protectionism; intensifying geo-political tensions; the global economy still faces intricacy. While China is still moving into a new development phase, the foundation for recovery is yet to be consolidated. Issues in unbalanced and inadequate development remain to be tackled. However, China still enjoys positive economic development factors: 2021 is the commencing year of the “14th Five-Year Plan” which represents the three major objectives have been completed on schedule, and a new development pattern with the domestic big circle as the main body and the domestic and international double circle promoting each other is being accelerated.. China will continue to implement a proactive fiscal policy and a prudent monetary policy so as to keep providing necessary support for economic recovery. It is expected that China’s economic growth is going to operate within a reasonable range. In 2021, COVID-19 pandemic, OPEC+ production cut and geo-politics incidents pose continuing challenges on oil price. The recovery of the global economy in the second half of the year will draw new oil demand. Rising supply is expected from OPEC nations exempted from oil cut and non-OPEC producers like Canada, which are to exert pressure on the supply side. However, global oil supply would run on a lower level should OPEC+ maintain effective enforcement on production cut, so much so that the supply will stay lower than demand. On the political stage, the new US president’s ruling strategy, the degree of support for energy development in US and the positioning of Sino US relations are still uncertain. Whether Sino US trade frictions will come back and the trend of US crude oil production and export are all factors that may affect the oil price trend in 2021. The domestic petrochemical industry is currently facing the challenge of a downward economic cycle. During the “14th Five-Year Plan” period, China’s refining and chemical industry is set to enter a full phase of new release in capacity and fierce competition. Industry integration, transformation and upgrading are also phasing in. Oversupply is further seen in the refined oil market. The transformation of chemical products towards the higher end and the more environmentally friendly will become a new trend. Driven by new energy, new materials, and the new economy, clean, digital, and diversified developments are now the key trends in developments upon the phasing in of a new energy regime in social development. These new developments will impact the energy supply from petrochemical companies, which will put severe pressure on petrochemical companies’ profitability. 2.
