Asia Expected To Lead The Global Petrochemical Industry Capacity Growth
GlobalData’s report ‘Global Petrochemicals Capacity and Capital Expenditure Outlook, 2021 - 2030 – Asia Leads Global Petrochemical Capacity Additions’, reveals that the total petrochemical capacity of new-build and expansion projects in Asia is expected to be 477 million tonnes per annum (mtpa) by 2030. Of this, 465.8 mtpa will be from new-build projects and the remaining capacity will be from expansion projects.
Dayanand Kharade, Oil and Gas Analyst at GlobalData, explains: “Asia will continue to dominate the global petrochemicals market with both the biggest number of new projects and the largest absolute capacity expansion, driven by the economic growth of China, India and other Asian countries.”
The Middle East is expected to have the second highest petrochemical capacity additions globally, behind Asia. The region contributes about 140.8 mtpa of the total global new-build and expansion petrochemical capacity additions by 2030. Major capacity additions for the Middle East will be from Iran, with a new-build and expansion capacity additions of 83.3 mtpa during the period.
