Technavio Announces Top Nine Vendors in the Petrochemicals Market in MENA from 2015 to 2019

Technavio 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.”
