by Azuaga, Feliciano Lhanos

Abstract (Summary)
The petrochemical industry is a subsegment of the chemical industry and important producer of intermediate inputs for the most different industries. The state had an important role in the of the petrochemical industry in Brazil. The state had as its main agent of action in the state sector Petrobras Química SA, a subsidiary of Petrobras. In the 90#s ocshareholdings of Petroquisa in petrochemical companies, which provided the reorganization of sector, another milestone was the opening of the Brazilian economy. These changes led companies to adopt new strategies to adapt to this new environment. In the course of the postprivatization period the sector showed competitive and structural weaknesses in the country, which increased production costs and undertook a large its competitiveness. There is a perception that is occurring a return of Petrobras. The industry is receiving significant attention from the Petrobras, through new ventures and other running under study, with that the state seeks to recover a place of prominence, following its current strategic direction to resume positions in the petrochemical sector. Understanding the constraints of that new posture and especially the consequences for the industry is the challenge of this work. To achieve its goal is systematic changes in the Brazilian petrochemical industry after the restructuring of the industry in the post-privatization, especially as regards the new standard of competition, the strategies adopted by companies faced with a new industrial structure and the role exercised by the state in this process are the three broadly that this work aims to follow to achieve that goal.
