The competitiveness of Qatar's ethane-fed petrochemicals industry is being diminished by the sustained low cost of naphtha feedstock used by its competitors as well as over supply in key export markets, which is driving down product prices. Having cancelled major petrochemicals projects, Qatar is now focused on expanding and diversifying its downstream portfolio in order to add value and support margins.

China and India represent the largest markets for Qatar's polyethylene output, but exports to these Asian economic powerhouses are under pressure and the country's petrochemicals industry needs to diversify if it is to defend its profit margins. The prospects for the industry will therefore be determined primarily by the trends in the volatile and uncertain European markets. The author believes the upshot will be pressure on Qatari margins and potentially lower production volumes, possibly leading to turnaround schedules being moved forwards.
