Global petrochemicals capacity will grow considerably over the next five years, increasing from 1,464 million metric tonnes per annum (mmtpa) in 2015 to 1,708 mmtpa by 2020. Around 647 planned projects are slated to come online in the next five years, driven primarily by China, the US, and Iran. Asia has over half of all planned projects, with China responsible for 176 projects with a total capacity of 64 mmtpa by 2019. China Petroleum & Chemical Corporation, Shenhua Group Corporation Limited and China Coal Energy Company Limited will be the top three companies behind major capacity additions in China during the forecast period.
The petrochemical plant proposals across ten key countries would increase global capacity for petrochemicals by over 1,000 mmtpa by 2019, approximately equivalent to two thirds of total capacity in 2015. These projects represent over US$140 billion of estimated capital expenditure.
