This growth is fueled by the growth in end-use industries such as packaging which comprises of soft drink bottling, water bottling, food packaging and general packaging, along with steady demand from the construction industry, globally.
Ethylene – The largest market among top 15 petrochemicals
Ethylene is primarily a petrochemical used as a feedstock in the manufacturing of polymer plastics, fibers and other organic chemicals that are ultimately consumed in the packaging, transportation, and construction industries. Ethylene constituted about 25% share of the total petrochemical market in 2016, in terms of volume and is projected to maintain its share during the forecast period. With advent of abundant shale gas in North America, the majority of global players in the ethylene business have shifted their production facilities to North America to churn out low cost ethylene from ethane.

The GGC (Gulf Cooperation Council) market for bottled water is projected to grow by about 50% each year driven by scarcity of water and rise in population. With rise in disposable income in the emerging economies, the demand of juices, nutrition drinks is projected to grow at high rates in the forecast period.
