Kuwait's petrochemicals industry should prove resilient in the face of the twin challenges of rapid growth in Iranian exports and an increasingly over-supplied Asian market. Petrochemicals capacities are expanding, but the delay in the Al-Zour refinery project presents a significant downside.

Kuwaiti petrochemicals should experience a boost to production as a result of debottlenecking operations at its polyethylene (PE) and mono-etylene glycol (MEG) units. Production will be further boosted in 2017 with the completion of Kuwait Petroleum Corporation's (KPC) Olefins III petrochemicals project. The country's industry should also capitalise on lower naphtha costs, which put it at a competitive advantage over ethane-based rivals in the Arabian Gulf region.
