The petrochemical industry of today is an indispensable part of the manufacturing and consuming sectors, churning out products which include paint, plastic, rubber, detergents, dyes, fertilizers, textiles, and even solvents.

The 21st century is seeing a paradigm shift from West to East in the Petrochemicals business, with the Middle East emerging as global production hub with natural advantages of low cost feedstock.

Major consumption centers are shifting to Asia given the rapid growth in demand in China on account of chemical intensive and export driven industry & India emerging as global consumption centers.

This trend is likely to also shake up the global petrochemical industry with emergence of National Chemicals and Oil Companies as global players and established western companies having to exit or shrink unless they realign by moving eastwards through partnerships or strategic alliances to be near the consumption centers to catch up with Asia Petrochemical boom.

However, as regional petrochemicals development continues, the industry will face significant challenges relating to energy and feedstock availability and to climate change, particularly carbon dioxide emissions.

The Global Petrochemical Industry is analyzed in detail by Aruvian Research in its research report Analyzing the Global Petrochemical Industry 2016 which presents a very fundamental understanding of the various petrochemical derivatives underlined with their commercial outlook in the global petrochemical industry. The report also elaborates in detail on the region-wise competitive moves and overtures into the global petrochemical industry as well as the emergence of new heavyweights as Asian producers into the top echelons of the global petrochemical industry.

The report explains the deepening impact of the current financial crisis which hit the global petrochemical industry before it has progressed onto the other sectors of the world economies. In conclusion, the report presents close understanding of the major chemical as well as petro players such as Dow Chemical, DuPont, Total, ExxonMobil, Shell, British Petroleum and others through tools such as a SWOT analysis and presents in detail the financial performances of the world majors.

The report begins with an analysis of the global petrochemical industry through global market developments, present industry scenario, the emergence of shale gas and how it has impacted the global petrochemical industry, supply and demand scenario of petrochemicals worldwide, industry overview in both developed as well as emerging markets, etc. We also analyze the market for gasoline and gasoil/diesel, the market for naphtha, the market for bunker fuel and the market for jet fuel.

Global petrochemical industry growth is looked at for both present-day scenario and an outlook. We particularly look at the outlook for chlor-alkali and acetic acid, acrylic acid and Tio2. The report also analyzes the cost competitiveness of the industry.

Moving on, the report analyzes the market for some key petrochemicals and looks at both the present industry situation as well as an industry outlook. Key petrochemicals analyzed in our report include benzene, bisphenol A, cumene, dimethyl terephthalate, ethylbenzene, methylene di-p-phenylene isocyanate, orthoxylene, paraxylene, phenol, phthalic anhydride, styrene, terephthalic acid, toluene, toluene diisocyanate, butadiene, ethylene, propylene, 2-ethylhexanol, acetic acid, acetone, acrylic acid, ammonia, ethanol, ethyl acetate, methanol, polycarbonate, HDPE, polypropylene, polystyrene, styrene butadiene rubber, urea and vinyl chloride monomer. Each petrochemical is analyzed through their prices, technologies involved in their production, uses and market scenario as well as a market outlook.

The report also looks separately at polyolefins and monoethylene glycol and analyzes the market through an industry overview, applications, etc.

Leading regions in the petrochemical industry and the key markets are then analyzed. Regions analyzed include Europe, Asia Pacific, the Middle East, Africa, South and North America. Countries analyzed in the report include Belgium, Bulgaria, France, Germany, Russia, Ukraine, United Kingdom, Australia, India, China, Japan, Egypt, Iran, Israel, Qatar, the UAE, Algeria, Nigeria, South Africa and the United States.

Major industry players are analyzed through a corporate profile, an analysis of their business segments, a financial analysis and a SWOT analysis. The report analyzes nearly 50 leading petrochemical companies of the world.
