Products such as ethylene, propylene, and benzene are widely used in various industries such as packaging, electronics, plastics, and rubber. The ethylene product segment dominated the market in 2021 and is expected to maintain its lead in the forecast period owing to its wide application scope across several industries. Asia Pacific is anticipated to dominate the market in the forecast period owing to the favorable regulatory policies in the region.
Crude oil and natural gas are the major raw materials used for the manufacturing of petrochemical products. The volatile prices of crude oil are a major challenge in the procurement process of crude oil as a raw material for manufacturers. The industry players that are reliant on crude oil as a feedstock for manufacturing are likely to face difficulties in the coming years. However, declining prices of natural gas owing to a rise in its production are expected to augment the growth of the product over the forecast period.
The competitiveness among the producers of the product is high as the market is characterized by the presence of a large number of global players with strong distribution networks. Top players are dominating the industry for the past few years owing to the increasing investment in R&D activities related to new product development.
