Kuwait's petrochemicals industry should prove resilient in the face of the twin challenges of rapid growth inIranian exports and an increasingly over-supplied Asian market. Petrochemicals capacities are expanding,but the delay in the Al-Zour refinery project presents a significant downside.Kuwaiti petrochemicals should experience a boost to production as a result of debottlenecking operations atits polyethylene (PE) and mono-etylene glycol (MEG) units. Production will be further boosted in 2017with the completion of Kuwait Petroleum Corporation's (KPC) Olefins III petrochemicals project. Thecountry's industry should also capitalise on lower naphtha costs, which put it at a competitive advantageover ethane-based rivals in the Arabian Gulf region.
