Key Findings


The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) is the major producer of ethylene in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) currently with over x % of capacity. Regional ethylene capacity is expected to grow from x million metric tonnes (MMT) in 2012 to x MMT by 2017 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of x %.

Ethylene derivatives are used in a wide variety of industrial and consumer markets such as packaging, transportation, electrical/electronic, textile, and construction industries, as well as consumer chemicals, coatings, and adhesives. Polyethylene is the major ethylene derivative in use, and it accounts for close to x % of global ethylene demand.

Significant expansions to the tune of x to x x % of existing ethylene cracker capacity are expected in the United States over the next x to x years as a result of low cost ethane coming out of the shale gas boom. This will make US ethylene exports more competitive in Europe, thereby competing against GCC exports in the region over the medium to long term.

The GCC demand for ethylene is expected to rise over the coming years due to a growth in demand for packaged food and beverages, and governments have been focused on developing the entire value chain for the plastics industry in the GCC. As a result, this industry is experiencing tremendous growth as a result of the availability of ample raw material at competitive prices and a surge in demand from the downstream segments like plastic food packages, pipes, cables, and wires.
