Report summary

Although relatively small in size, the Swiss oil products market is quite competitive with a significant number of players. The density of the retail fuels network is above average for Europe due to a large number of rural communities in hard to reach mountainous regions. Oil demand has been relatively stable over recent years, however the long-term demand forecast is gradual decline. There are two domestic refineries but only one is currently on-stream, Varo Energy's Cressier plant. Tamoil suspended operations at the other refinery, Collombey, in early 2015 due to a lack of profitability, and has been looking for a buyer since. This has increased the country's reliance on imports leading to a large number of importers and distributors.
