Many of the Middle East cracker expansions are now back on track after delays during the worldwide financial crisis in 2008-2009.(Menafn-the peninsula, May 2010 & www.arabianoilandgas.com, April 2010).

Another player with new capacities coming on is Borouge , around which 8.5m tones/year cracking capacity is expected to be onstream. (www.arabianbusiness.com, June 2010).

It has not been an easy road for these Middle East players and they are proving more resilient amid challenges of limited feedstock supplies, volatile economic situation, EPC costs, etc. How will the market dynamics shape up next year? What are the challenges and strategies to compete in the global arena?

China and India are crucial markets as they are buyers of the olefins and polyolefins products whilst producing their own. Despite recent global economic slowdown, the two economic giants are still showing amazing growth and demand but can they continue to absorb the Middle East capacities?

The search for growth continues and other markets that are creating a buzz are the Turkish market and Africa markets. Turkey, one of the important upcoming manufacturing sites in Europe, is particularly interesting. Having a limited local production, Turkey has to import most of its polyolefins to meet their increasing demand. How will the polyolefins consumption trends shape up in the mid-long term?

The African polyolefins markets continue to draw interest due to their close proximity to Middle East. Evaluate how these markets will evolve despite immense challenges.

While forecasting demand trends and gathering market insights are vital success factors, players will also need to know the best logistics and supply chain solutions to bring their products to their customers efficiently. What are the optimal solutions available? Learn how you can devise innovative strategies to meet your logistics challenges.
