Analyzing the Petrochemical Industry in China 2016

Analyzing the Petrochemical Industry in China 2016

The Chinese petrochemicals industry is the fastest growing petrochemical industry worldwide. Despite facing a downslope as recession slowed down growth, Chinese petrochemicals market has held on to its stimulus packages and strong demand from its large domestic market helped in its revival.

The Chinese petrochemicals industry is imports-dependent, which will continue to benefit the producers across nations like Saudi Arabia, Japan, Korea and the United States. These countries can extend their excess supply to the Chinese market. The fast growing Chinese market is welcoming foreign producers who are investing their efforts into joint ventures with Chinese producers to establish manufacturing facilities in China.

The growing Chinese demand in the recovery phase provides opportunities to producers in other countries who can export their excess supply to the Chinese market. Major Asian countries such as Japan and South Korea have benefited most by exporting to China.
