GCC Polymers Market Outlook 2017-2025

Polymers are made either from naturally occurring materials or are man-made usually from the petroleum products. The increasing concerns over environment, health and economy over the use of synthetic polymers are leading the way towards the manufacturing of sustainable polymers. The fact can be verified as in 2016, 2.4 million ton bio-based polymers capacity was installed to cater the global plastic demand of 340 million tons in 2016, which is expected to be replaced by the bio-polymers. Goldstein Research analyst forecast that the GCC polymers market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.8% during 2017-2025. The increasing consumption of polymers in GCC is driven by the growing developmental activities and tracing the opportunistic regions such as India and Africa. The GCC polymer industry in 2016 was estimated to grow by 5% and reached to 27.1 million tons capacity. Qatar was recorded as the fastest growing consumer of polymers in the region which is growing at a rate of 14% annually. Polymers market is growing with the high demand across the globe with second major contribution from the GCC region after China. However, to sustain the global position GCC has to review their strategies, competitiveness and market networks thus the new export opportunities. The global target to achieve sustainable, affordable and reliable renewable energy has led to installation of other sources of energy in the region (solar energy) to cater the new opportunities. But this has posed threat to the GCC petrochemical industry and so to the synthetic polymers industry.
