Free Market Analysis




Petrochemicals are chemical compounds derived from hydrocarbons and obtained from crude oil and natural gas. They are primarily used as chemical building blocks for variety of materials and applications. Petrochemicals are classified into ethylene, propylene, butadiene, benzene and many more. The major end-use industries of petrochemicals include packaging, construction, automobile and plastics. One of the major factors which have been driving the global and Chinese market for petrochemicals includes the growth of these end use industries. In addition, abundant availability of raw materials in the Middle East, which is one of the largest producer and exporter of crude oil and natural gas, is further expected to propel the growth of market. However, volatility in crude oil and natural gas prices and high carbon emissions of petrochemical products is expected to inhibit the market growth over the forecast period.

Ethylene is primarily used as intermediary in the production of polyethylene, which has wide application in packaging, textile and construction industry. It was the largest consumed type of petrochemical which accounted for over 28% of the total consumption in 2011. Ethylene was followed by propylene and accounted for nearly 18% of the total consumption due to its extensive use in the foam and plastic industry. In terms of volume, methanol is expected to be fastest growing product segment with an estimated CAGR of approximately 10% from 2012 to 2018. The growth of methanol is driven by high demand in downstream derivatives especially from China and in biodiesel production. 

Due to rapid infrastructure development and industrialization in China, it was the largest consumer of petrochemicals and accounted for over 25% of the global consumption in 2011.  China along with being the biggest market is also expected to be the fastest growing market at an estimated CAGR of 6.7% from 2012 to 2018. The growth of major end use industries in China is being primarily triggered by the rapid economic growth in the nation. It is also one of the largest producers of coal and shale gas which are emerging feedstock for petrochemical production. China was followed by Rest of Asia Pacific in terms of consumption and accounted for over 23% of the global demand of petrochemicals in 2011. Growth of the Indian economy is one of the major factors driving the consumption of petrochemicals in Rest of Asia Pacific. 

The major trend in the petrochemical industry is shift of manufacturing units towards the East especially in China and Middle East due to abundant availability of raw material and cheap labor. In addition, to reduce the dependability on raw material, owing to limited availability and the volatility associated with their prices, the world is shifting focus towards developing unconventional resources such as shale gas. North America is the major consumer of shale gas due to limited reserves of crude oil and natural gas. The key participants in the industry are shifting their focus towards bio-based chemicals due to growing consumer awareness and environmental concerns. Some of the platform chemicals which are being developed and are on the verge of commercialization include succinic acid, aspartic acid, levulinic acid, glycerol, glutamic acid and glucaric acid. 

The petrochemical market was highly fragmented as top five companies accounted for over 30% of the total market share in 2011. BASF was the largest manufacturer of petrochemical in 2011 and accounted for nearly 9% of the market. The company has high production capacities with wide product portfolio and has vertically integrated value chain. Sinopec and ExxonMobil were the next largest companies in the petrochemical market together accounting for over 11% of the total market share in 2011. The other major players in the petrochemicals market include DuPont, Dow Chemical, INEOs, Shell and SABIC among others.
