Chemical and Petrochemical Market in Malaysia to Garner 150,375.8 Tons vis-à-vis Volume, Says TMR Study


Analysts at TMR estimate the Malaysia chemical and petrochemical market to expand at a CAGR of 4.2% for the forecast period from 2021 to 2025. The incessant demand for chemicals and petrochemicals in several end-use industries such as food & beverages, pharmaceuticals, and automotive propels the Malaysia chemical and petrochemical market.

The vast oil & gas reserves in Malaysia account for a significant revenue to the chemical and petrochemical market in the country. This is attracting new companies to establish refinery facilities that would produce a range of chemical and petrochemical products. New players are entering into partnerships with large petroleum companies in the country to gain from their foothold in the chemical and petrochemical market in Malaysia.

Moreover, chemicals and petrochemicals are an integral part of the chemical industry due to their substantial use in the manufacture of synthetic materials.

The outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic had an adverse impact on the Malaysia chemical and petrochemical market. An estimated 5% to 15% decline in foreign direct investment (FDI) has compelled stakeholders to focus on positive or limited negative impact industries. Furthermore, companies are undertaking initiatives to redesign their workflow processes at manufacturing plants to lessen the challenges of the pandemic. This is anticipated to revive growth of the chemical and petrochemical market in Malaysia.
