Developing and investing in advanced technologies are ways in which companies can create truly exceptional value. The current economic environment coupled with environmental challenges represents a fairly unique opportunity for companies to create extraordinary value by developing new process technologies in the petrochemical sector.
Petrochemicals: Oil Treating & Refining
The petrochemical industry of today is an unavoidable part of the manufacturing and consuming sectors, responsible for products like paint, plastic, rubber, detergents, dyes, fertilizers, textiles, and even solvents. However, 2009 has been an unpleasant year for the Petrochemicals sector, which experienced a huge drop in demand due to the global economic slowdown. The fundamental weakness in the world economy has restricted the consumption of petrochemicals. The beginning of this 21st century has seen a huge shift from the West to the East in the Petrochemicals business, with Middle East emerging as a global production hub with an advantage of low cost feedstock.
This trend is likely to also affect the global petrochemical industry with emergence of National Chemicals and Oil Companies as global players having to realign by moving eastwards through partnerships or strategic alliances to be near the consumption centers to catch up with Asias Petrochemical boom.
However, as regional petrochemicals development continues, the industry will face significant challenges relating to energy and feedstock availability and to climate change, particularly carbon dioxide emissions. Major consumptions are shifting to Asia given the rapid growth in demand in China on account of chemical intensive and export driven industry & India emerging as a global consumer.
