Global Petrochemical Market to Top USD 875.22 Billion By 2027

Facts & Factors has published a new report titled “Petrochemical Market By Product Type (Ethylene, Toluene, Propylene, Xylenes, Benzene, and Butadiene), By Polymer Type (Polyethylene (PE), Polyester (PET), Polypropylene (PP), Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS), Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC), and Polystyrene (PS)), and By Application (General, Oncology, Gastroenterology, Neurological Disorders, Diabetes, and Hyper-metabolism): Global Industry Perspective, Comprehensive Analysis, and Forecast, 2018 – 2027”. According to the report, the global petrochemical market is predicted to be valued at approximately USD 507.44 billion in 2018 and is expected to reach a value of around USD 875.22 billion by 2027, at a CAGR of around 6.3 % between 2019 and 2027.

Petrochemicals are chemical compounds extracted from feedstock such as natural gas, crude oil, and gasoline. Petroleum is the key raw substance that is utilized for manufacturing olefins like ethylene, propylene, and aromatics, including xylene, benzene, and toluene. These products are used across many sectors like agriculture, construction, automotive, electrical and electronics. All these factors are predicted to substantially leverage the growth of the market over the forecast timeline.

Escalating demand for the chemical products to steer the market growth

Massive product demand across myriad end-use industries is predicted to steer the growth of the market over the forecast timeline. In addition to this, growing government support witnessed across the evolving economies is projected to contribute majorly towards the market expansion during the forecast timeline.

Furthermore, easy access to raw materials in many countries of the Middle East is predicted to steer the expansion of the petrochemical industry over the forecast timeline. Nonetheless, a growing trend towards the manufacturing of bio-based chemicals is likely to create obstacles in the growth of the industry during the period from 2019 to 2027. Moreover, growing environmental concerns is likely to pose a threat to the market expansion over the forecast period. In addition to this, oscillating crude oil costs will obstruct the business scope over the forecast timeline. However, the availability of shale gas as well as coal as a feedstock for the production of petrochemicals is likely to offer new growth avenues for the industry over the forecast timeline. Additionally, acceptance of analytics and process digitization in refineries will further spur the market expansion over the forecast timeline.

Polyethylene (PE) to dominate the polymer type segment by 2027

The growth of the Polyethylene (PE) segment during the forecast timeline is owing to the massive use of high-density polyethylene in blow molding & injection molding applications including drums, caps, and homemade products.
