Diversification of the Middle Eastern petrochemical industry – the growth of propylene capacity
Middle East propylene supply is a story unique to itself. Whilst other main propylene producing regions are having to fill the supply gap with on-purpose technology routes, in the Middle East, steam cracker feedslates are getting heavier, which will be vital to meet a growing propylene market. Our new "Long-term Global Propylene Market Service" examines these dynamics and in this Insight, we look at the growth of propylene capacity in the Middle East and its global impact.
