The article reports on the negative impact of price controls and feedstock concerns on the growth of Argentina's petrochemicals sector. According to Jorge Buhler of Polyolefins Consulting, efforts to control inflation have led to downward price controls in all industries, including petrochemicals. Uncertainties about feedstock prices, energy prices and selling prices mean that companies are unlikely to invest in new petrochemicals projects in Argentina.
