The organic hydrocarbons derived from crude oil and natural gas is called petrochemicals. Some of the products made from petrochemicals are plastics, soaps, detergents, solvents (e.g. paint thinner), paints, drugs, fertilizer, pesticides, explosives, synthetic fibres and rubbers, flooring and insulating materials, aspirin, cars, clothing, compact discs, video tapes, electronic equipment, furniture etc.

Petrochemicals feedstock is broadly segmented as:

  • Olefins - Unsaturated aliphatic hydrocarbons having the general formula CnH2n. Olefins contain one or more double bonds, which make them chemically reactive -Ethylene, propylene, and butadiene. 
  • Aromatics - are unsaturated cyclic hydrocarbons containing one or more rings -benzene, toluene, and xylenes.
  • Synthesis gas- is a mixture of carbon monoxide and hydrogen and is used to make ammonia and methanol.

A boom in construction, packaging, transportation, textile, plastics, and healthcare industries ensures high growth in the petrochemical industry. Political initiatives, increasing population, economic growth and reserves of crude oil and natural gas will be the key drivers of petrochemicals growth in Asia – Pacific and Middle East region. The discovery of unconventional gases such as shale gas as petrochemical feedstock opens up new opportunity in the future market.

The key challenge for the industry is the growing environmental concerns with the production methods and usage of various petrochemicals. Major players in petrochemical manufacturing are BASF, Dow Chemical, ExxonMobil Chemical, INEOS, DuPont, Chevron Phillips etc.
