Dow Inc., the largest producer in the world, focuses on HPPO technology to produce propylene oxide. It is focusing on inorganic growth strategies, as seen in the recent joint venture between Dow Inc. and Siam Cement Group (Thailand,) which started operations as the SCG–Dow Inc. Group (Thailand), for its new propylene oxide facility. This new facility has a capacity of 390,000 tons per annum of propylene oxide using HPPO technology. The company thus further strengthened its position in the Asian propylene oxide market. The Sadara Chemical Company (Saudi Arabia), a joint venture of The Dow Inc. Chemical Company (US) and Saudi Arabian Oil Company (Saudi Arabia), launched in December 2016, consists of 26 production units and is engaged in the production of propylene oxide/isocyanates/polyurethanes envelope and the ethylene oxide/propylene oxide/specialty chemicals units. The company further strengthened its position in the propylene oxide market with this development.
LyondellBasell Industries Holdings B.V. is the second-largest producer in the world and uses proprietary propylene oxide and TBA technology to manufacture propylene oxide. The company is focusing on organic as well as inorganic strategies and is planning to build a PO/TBA plant in the Houston area (US) with an annual production capacity of One billion pounds of propylene oxide and two billion pounds of tertiary butyl alcohol. The plant became operational in 2020. LyondellBasell is expected to become the largest producer of propylene oxide using the PO/TBA technology and strengthen its position in the propylene oxide market with this development,
