Regional Insights

The global petrochemical market is divided into Europe, North America, Asia-Pacific, and the rest.
The Asia-Pacific region accounted for the largest maximum market share of around 51.5 percent in 2017, given by the rapid industrialization in the region. The regional demand is anticipated to record a substantial CAGR during the assessment timeframe.

The North American region has emerged to be one of the important petrochemicals markets. The growing demand for petrochemical products is the major aspect causing an upsurge in the regional market's growth. Additionally, the steady growth in the demand from automotive and construction industries allied with substantial capacity expansions is projected to propel the growth of the petrochemicals market.

The European petrochemical market is distinguished by prominent leaders in the region. Increased ethylene production in leading economies such as the U.K., France, and Germany is likely to boost the region's growth in the foreseeable future.
The Middle East economy is likely to be powered by plentiful crude oil and natural gas supply. The region boasts its power, especially in ethylene and its derivatives such as ethylene glycol and polyethylene (P.E.).


There are certain petrochemical market trends that are driving growth. One of these is the growth in the companies in the base chemical sector that use petrochemical products for downstream products and capacity adds. More and more new technologies are being developed and used to process light crude oil and mixed crude oil. This will definitely increase the supply of various petrochemical products.

Also, the price of the raw materials needed to process various petrochemical products has stabilized. This is also expected to be a major growth driver.


Many end-user industries need advanced petrochemical products that are friendlier for the environment and have more innovative applications. The same is true for the rapidly expanding base chemical field. Some end-use industries that have more of a need for improved petrochemical products include aviation, building and construction, agriculture, food and beverage, electrical and electronics, healthcare, and automotive.

In September 2021, Sibur, Russia's biggest petrochemicals company has signed a deal to take over 100% of TAIF, its Tatarstan based rival, in an equity swap, which will leave the shareholders of TAIF with 15% of the merged company and bonds, both companies announced on September 24.
