The overall performance of the polymer market in South America is largely linked to the market in the region’s largest and second largest economies, Brazil and Argentina, which accounts for the majority of the region’s polymer and compound/masterbatch demand. For much of the last decade, both countries have been subject to great difficulties, and the ongoing crisis in Venezuela has further contributed towards the weak economic performance of the region.
The market for plastic resin and compounds was already weak leading up to 2020, when theregion was hit by the global pandemic, resulting in a decline in demand for both resins andcompounds in 2020. Polymer demand was quick to recover, and markets returned to growth in 2021.
