The Company’s performance results for 2020 are presented in its Annual Report.

The year of 2020 started with economic crisis in the industry. Lower than normal oil prices and feedstock prices associated therewith led to drop of global prices for polymers as well. After OPEC deal, raw material prices soared up resulting in feedstock deficiency for chemicals and petrochemicals sector. At the same time, COVID-19 pandemic posed a major setback to the economy. Against the background of OPEC crisis, this pandemic produced a cumulative effect to petrochemicals and oil and gas sector. Quarantine all over the world precluded polymers producers and processors from raising prices alongside with those for oil, oil products and LPG. Market revival did not start until the second half of the year.
