The opening of the mixed-feed Sadara petrochemicals complex should help boost Saudi Arabia's external competitiveness, helping to leverage low oil prices to its favour with greater use of naphtha feedstock. However, a challenging Asian market environment means margins will continue to come under pressure due to softening product prices.

Growth in Saudi Arabia's petrochemicals capacity will come at a time when China - Saudi Arabia's key export market - is ramping up its capacities, including a total of 3mn tonnes per annum (tpa) of ethylene,
while the country is seeing slower consumption growth. Added to the supply situation is the potential for Iranian output to enter the market as sanctions are eased.
