Top 15 Petrochemicals Market (Ethylene, Propylene, Benzene, Butadiene, Toluene, Xylenes, Ethylene Oxide, Propylene Oxide, Methanol, PE, PP, PVC, PS, PET, ABS), Applications, and Region - Global Forecast to 2021

“The high-growth application areas such as packaging, construction, and automotive is driving the consumption of petrochemicals market“
The top 15 petrochemicals market report is divided into three sub parts, basic petrochemicals, basic intermediate chemicals, and basic polymers. The basic petrochemicals market is projected to grow from 250.3 million tons in 2016 to 310.3 million tons by 2021, at a CAGR of 4.4% from 2016 to 2021. Rise in demand of commodity plastics in emerging economies of Southeast Asia and the Middle East fuels the market growth. Also, the growth in end-use industries such as automotive, packaging, electronics & electricals globally is driving the petrochemicals market.

“Xylenes is projected to be the fastest-growing basic petrochemical”
Xylenes is a colorless liquid and most important petrochemical. It is used as an intermediate to manufacture polyester (via polytetraphaltic acid (PTA) and DMT (Dimethyltryptamine). The xylenes market is projected to grow at a CAGR 6% during the forecast period. The growth is attributed to the rise in demand for polyester fiber (fibers, fabrics and floor coverings) & polyester resins for beverage containers. Exxon Mobil is the largest producer of xylenes in the world having operations in North America, Western Europe, and Southeast Asia. JX Nippon (Japan), Reliance Industries (India), and BP (U.K.), and LyondellBasell (Switzerland) are some of the other major players in the xylenes market, globally. The demand for para xylene is expected to rise in the U.S. because of commencement of new derivative plant by Mossi and Ghisolfi (M&G), in Texas. The plant will have a capacity of 1.3m ton/year PTA and 1.1m ton/year PET.

“Asia-Pacific is the fastest-growing market for petrochemicals”
Asia-Pacific is the fastest-growing market for petrochemicals. The growth of the market in the region is attributed to expansion of production capacity, high demand for end-use products, and others. On the other hand, the matured markets of North America and Europe would witness slow growth as high as compared to Asia-Pacific. These markets are becoming saturated, as companies operating in this market are shifting their manufacturing bases to low cost countries such as India, Malaysia, and China among others.

With the recent expansion activities by key players in the Asia-Pacific region; the demand for petrochemicals in this region is projected to grow at the highest CAGR between 2016 and 2021.
