Petrochemicals Market Size, Share & Trends Analysis Report By Product (Ethylene, Propylene, Butadiene, Benzene, Xylene, Toluene, Methanol), By Region, And Segment Forecasts, 2020 - 2027

The global petrochemicals market size is projected to reach USD 651.1 billion by 2027, expanding at a CAGR of 5.0%. The market for petrochemicals is largely driven by rising demand for downstream specialty chemicals and plastic manufacturing.

The industry is growing through a transformation with manufacturers focusing on high margin products and trying to optimize raw material costs.Sustainability is the key standpoint driving decision making.

The rising plastic waste and pollution resulting from manufacturing facilities have prompted manufacturers to take steps to tackle the rising problem.Going ahead, manufacturers are trying to develop products with widened application scope and minimal environmental impact.

In China, technologies are being developed to recycle plastic waste into crude oil. Commercialization of these technologies will not only reduce pollution but also ensure the supply of raw materials to the petrochemical industry.

Capacity additions are expected to be a major feature of the market for petrochemicals.Passing through the consolidation phase in 2012 - 2016, the market for petrochemicals witnessed a large number of strategic divestments and acquisitions.

Currently, a large number of projects are being constructed in North America, China, and the Middle East. China is expected to be a major player with more than 6.9 million metric tons of cumulative capacity expected to be operational by 2021. The Middle East is expected to face a lot of problems with manufacturers viewing China as a favorable destination.
