Synopsis of Petrochemical Market:

Petrochemicals are basically Petroleum products derived from hydrocarbons. Some other chemical compounds made from petroleum are also obtained from other fossil fuels, such as coal, or natural gas, or renewable sources such as corn or sugar cane. Petrochemical is mainly classified into two type’s olefins (including ethylene and propylene) and aromatics (including benzene, toluene and xylene isomers). Both of these are produced in oil refineries by fluid catalytic cracking of petroleum fraction. Olefins produced by steam cracking of natural gas liquid such as ethane and propane, whereas aromatics are produced by catalytic reforming of naphtha.

Petrochemicals are used in various end user industries ranging from manufacturing to consumer goods. However, they are most commonly used in adhesives, polymers, paints and coatings, dyes, surfactants. The Global Petrochemical Market is expected to be driven by rising demand for petrochemicals in major end-user industries linked with favorable operating conditions, especially in the Middle East and Asia Pacific over the forecast period. Moreover, Demand for bio-based chemicals is increasing due to growing consumer awareness as we all benefits associated with their usage. Consequently, investment in bio based chemicals in public and private sector likely to increase in near future and will hamper the growth of Petrochemical Market globally.
