  • RSS Feed

Securing natural gas feedstock in the Middle East has become increasingly difficult in the last few years, threatening the region’s dominance as the most economical petrochemicals producer, according to a new report by business intelligence company GlobalData.



*Petrochemical Industry - Key Geographies Experiencing Change in Feedstock Scenario

The study provides an in-depth analysis of the petrochemical feedstock supply scenario in key locations, while explaining the reasons for a decrease in the supply of ethane feedstock in geographies such as the Middle East and Canada. It also explains the impact of new oil and gas discoveries on the petrochemicals industries in countries such as the US, Brazil and Canada. The study provides the basic petrochemicals (ethylene, propylene, butadiene, benzene, toluene, xylenes and methanol) capacity split by feedstock for all the five regions. The report highlights the change in the supply trend of petrochemical feedstock sources such as natural gas and crude oil. The report is built using data and information sourced from proprietary databases, primary and secondary research and in-house analysis by GlobalData’s research team of industry experts.
