The Turkey Petrochemicals Report provides industry professionals and strategists, corporate analysts, petrochemical associations, government departments and regulatory bodies with independent forecasts and competitive intelligence on Turkey's petrochemicals industry.

In 2010 Turkey’s ethylene production capacity remained unchanged at 520,000tonnes per annum (tpa), providing feedstock for plants with capacities of 140,000tpa ethylene dichloride, 100,000tpa ethylene glycol, 80,000tpa ethylene oxide, 100,000tpa HDPE and 310,000tpa LDPE. Turkey has capacities of 150,000tpa PP, 150,000tpa VCM/PVC capacity, 140,000tpa PTA, 135,000tpa benzene and 80,000tpa PS. As there have been no firm new project announcements, BMI has not changed its forecasts for the petrochemicals sector, despite Turkish plastics conversion production capacity rising from an estimated 6.5mn tpa in 2009 to reach 11.3mn tpa in 2013 and 13mn tpa by 2014. However, there are positive signs that expansion is likely over coming years. State Oil Company of Azerbaijan (SOCAR) announced in 2010 that it intended to invest US$10bn over the next seven to eight years in Petkim’s operations.
