The market insight provides 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 propylene in the GCC along with a brief market overview and projected capacity expansions. Trade statistics for 2012 and price trend 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 propylene.
The Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) has the capacity to produce x million metric tonnes per annum (MMTA) of propylene which accounts for more than x % of total petrochemicals produced in the region. Rabigh Refining and Petrochemical Co (Petrorabigh) in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) with the capacity to produce x MMTA of propylene has the leading share in total capacity of the GCC.
The capacity utilisation rate for propylene in the GCC has varied in the last couple of years depending upon the fluctuations in the availability of ethane gas, as most of the propylene production is as a secondary product to ethylene in naphtha-fed steam crackers and oil-based fluid catalytic crackers (FCC) in refineries. With more new upcoming capacities in the region, the propylene production capacity is set to increase to x MMTA by 2017.
The key derivative of propylene is PP (PP), which consumes more than x % of propylene in the GCC countries, and is expected to drive the demand in these countries. The polymer is primarily used in manufacture of packaging films, nonwovens, moulded articles, automotive parts, woven bags, and carpets.
Developments in these PP downstream applications are expected to impact the demand for propylene
