PTT Global Chemical Public Company Limited is a 49%-owned subsidiary of PTT PCL.

It is Thailand's largest, fully-integrated petrochemical and chemical company operating in refinery, olefins and aromatics sectors, which account for 37%, 31% and 18% of the company's revenue, respectively.

Business Description

PTTGC's refinery business is a leading petroleum refiner in Thailand, supplying refined petroleum products such as LPG, a petrochemical input. Additionally, it sells cooking, transport fuel and middle distillates like jet fuel and diesel.

Its olefins business, which accounts 31% of its revenue, manufactures and distributes products using natural gas and naphtha as feedstocks. Olefins are used to produce fibers, wires, cables and plastics.

Its somewhat smaller aromatics business deals in chemicals used to make automotive parts, electronic parts, clothing and food packaging.

The remaining 14% of its revenue comes from its Green Chemicals, High Volume Specialties and other chemical-related businesses.

Parent company PTT has a total of six acquisitions expected to be finalized by the end of 2017, awaiting various shareholder approvals. If successful, PTTGC should add propylene and biochemical lines. Furthermore, the integration paves the way for adding downstream product lines.


Chairman Prasert Bunsumpun has held the position of chairman since 2011. The Harvard-educated titan has also held the chairmanship for Thoresen Thai Agencies and Krung Thai Bank.

The company has gone through several chief executives in the last few years. President & CEO Supattanapong Punmeechaow has held the position since late 2014 and has thus far seemed to right the ship.

The company is ranked well among its peers in terms of Profitable Growth.
