Technavio Announces Top Nine Vendors in the Petrochemicals Market in MENA from 2015 to 2019
has announced the top nine leading vendors in their recent petrochemicals
market in MENA report. This research report also lists 67
other prominent vendors that are expected to impact the market during
the forecast period.
Competitive vendor landscape
Technavio analysts highlight the top nine players in the petrochemicals
market in MENA and their subsidiaries, accounting for more than 60% of
the overall market in terms of capacity. The market experienced high
levels of capacity additions and is currently facing the issue of
overcapacity and supply in various individual product segments.
Debasish Nayak, lead analyst from the oil
and gas research team at Technavio, says, “The decline in the
global price of crude oil and the difficulty in sourcing ethane for use
as the major feedstock, are few other challenges faced by the market
players. However, to counter these challenges, manufacturers are
gradually shifting toward heavier feedstocks, such as naphtha, propane,
and butane. Thus, following the increased preference for heavier
feedstock, the market is expected to make rapid progress towards the
upward trajectory over the next five years.”
