Algeria has focused on low added-value production, relying on commodity chemicals that are highly price responsive to market fluctuations and easily undermined by capacity elsewhere in the world. The industry is some distance from competing on equal terms with European petrochemicals producers in terms of product diversification. As such, it will be vulnerable to market fluctuations in the narrow range of products it produces, although the effects on margins should be cushioned by the local availability of competitively priced feedstock.

The industry for petrochemicals in Algeria can be labeled as the next big thing in the North African region. The Algerian government has set out a US$80bn five-year investment budget for the industry as a result of investment in the country's unconventional gas reserves. This will have an inevitable effect on the petrochemicals industry, not only because there will be more gas available for feedstock, but also because Sonatrach will have more money to invest in revamping and boosting its petrochemicals industries.

Sonatrach and Sonalmeth are the top players in the industry currently.
