Report ID: 2114654

Summary

Table of Contents

The study provides market information on one of the largest petrochemical regions, which is important for understanding the global market from a strategic perspective. The study enlists key manufacturers and their production capacities for butadiene in the GCC along with a brief market overview and projected capacity expansions. Trade statistics for 2012 and price trends from 2008 to 2012 have been provided with a detailed analysis. The study includes a brief commentary on the major applications globally, key insights and future growth prospects for butadiene.


Key Findings

Arabian Petrochemical Company (Petrokemya) in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) is currently the only producer of butadiene in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC). No capacity additions are expected for butadiene in the GCC from 2012 through 2017.

The automotive industry is globally among the largest end users of butadiene derivatives. Poly-butadiene rubber (PBR) and Styrene Butadiene rubber (SBR), which find application in automotive tyres, together account for about x% of the global demand for butadiene.

The rapidly evolving automotive industry in the KSA, and the GCC in general, is expected to attract several auto component manufacturers to the GCC over the coming years.

Demand for butadiene is expected to rise in the GCC over the next x years, with several new derivative synthetic rubber and elastomer production facilities expected to come on-stream by 2017. This is likely to weigh down the future export volumes of butadiene from the GCC.

Production of butadiene largely depends on the demand for ethylene and propylene, which are its more valuable co-products. Market prices are greatly influenced by its supply-demand dynamics across regions and the price of its key substitute, natural rubber.
