Qatar is rich in natural resources, sitting on large gas and oil fields. Qatar has a large ethane feedstock base for the growth of its petrochemical industry. However, the rising construction costs and rising concerns about the availability of gas has caused a delay of many petrochemical projects. The petrochemical industry in Qatar has been focused on the production of basic chemicals and it is further trying to diversify its downstream segments as well.

There is a trade embargo imposed on Qatar by a group of nations being led by Saudi Arabia and UAE. However, this has not had a major impact on the country's petrochemical industry, particularly on petrochemical exports. However, in spite of this, the country needs to deal with many structural problems within the industry. In the coming five years, the industry is expected to continue to grow at a stable pace, with no major changes expected in the polymers capacity of Qatar.
