Czech Republic downstream oil long-term outlook

Report summary

The Czech Republic oil products market is dominated by sole domestic refiner, Unipetrol. Its influence on the internal market is further underpinned by supply into the CEPRO pipeline. CEPRO plays a pivotal role in the impartial control of transport and wholesale prices. Retail fuel margins are expected to remain fairly stable for the foreseeable future, driven by the high degree of pricing influence from Unipetrol and CEPRO. There remains a small but growing retail fuel discount segment, including the automated sites of independent players AVIA and Robin Oil. However, we expect non-fuel retail to play an increasingly important part in supporting net profitability. Benzina, Shell, OMV and MOL are leading the way by investing in forecourt diversification. Despite the dominance of Unipetrol, the overall structure of the retail market remains fragmented and characterised by a large number of small, independent players. As such, there is scope for further network consolidation.
