Research and Markets: Egyptian Petrochemicals Industry - Political Stability Creating Environment for Capacity Expansions


Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of GlobalData's new report "Egyptian Petrochemicals Industry - Political Stability Creating Environment for Capacity Expansions" to their offering.

Egyptian petrochemicals industry is set to expand substantially in the next five years as investors become more confident about the political stability in the country. Egyptian petroleum ministry announced a 20 year national plan for petrochemicals in 2002 to increase domestic petrochemicals production. In the first phase of the plan, which stretched from 2002 to 2008, various plants were delayed primarily due to a lack of interest by investors. Egyptian revolution in 2011 further hampered the development plans for the petrochemicals industry.

Now, after the arrival of a democratically elected government, investors have once again started to focus on building new plants. This is expected to bring a much-needed increase in the capacity and will increase the olefins, polyolefins and methanol capacity substantially. The next five years will also witness the start up of the first plants for commodities such as Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET), acetic acid, polystyrene and butadiene.
