Monetary investments made by national oil companies are significantly supports growth of the petrochemicals market.

The gradual rise in petroleum prices as most economies around the world slowly gather momentum after COVID-19 is helping to lift several associated business segments, including petrochemicals. This is stimulating the growth of the petrochemicals market after a lean period due to travel restrictions, dwindling oil & gas prices, and production cuts during the peak of the pandemic.

However, extensive disruptions in raw material supply chains during the pandemic, restricted movement of goods, and steep decline in the volume of seaborne transportation have impacted the overall petrochemicals market estimated to display moderate growth in the upcoming years. The petrochemicals market is projected to expand at a CAGR of 4.3% from 2020 to 2030.
