World Refinery Chemicals

http://www.reportlinker.com/p0170606/World-Refinery-Chemicals.html

Global demand to rise 3.5% annually through 2013

Global demand for chemicals used in petroleum refineries is projected to rise 3.5 percent annually to 18.2 million metric tons in 2013, valued at $21.6 billion. Gains will be led by strong increases in merchant hydrogen consumption, which is surging as refiners seek cost-effective options to meet their rising use of hydrogen for desulfurization and crude upgrading. For other refinery chemicals, global consumption will expand more slowly, although there will be healthy gains for catalysts used in hydrocracking and hydrotreating applications. Geographically, the most rapid growth rates for refinery chemical demand will be found in the Asia/Pacific and Africa/Mideast regions, although the large North American market will account for a substantial share of future volume gains.

Environmental regulations driving refinery chemical use

Around the world, oil refineries are subject to a myriad of environmental regulations aimed at reducing pollution from both petroleum products and the refineries themselves. The most significant of these regulations in terms of their impact on refinery operations are those mandating reductions in the sulfur content of refined petroleum products. To meet these reductions, refiners are expanding existing or constructing new hydrotreating units, which are projected to be among the fastest growing applications for refinery chemicals through 2013.

Crude oil upgrades support refinery chemical growth

A slowly growing share of global crude oil consumption is accounted for by heavier oils, which tend to contain higher levels of impurities and are generally more difficult and expensive to refine. Upgrading the long hydrocarbon chains found in these heavier oils for use in gasoline and distillate fuels requires significant refinery chemical use in hydrocracking, catalytic cracking and isomerization applications, and through 2013 the increased use of heavy crude oil will be a significant driver of refinery chemical demand.

Study coverage

This new industry study provides an in-depth overview of the global refinery chemicals market, presenting historical demand data (1998, 2003 and 2008) plus forecasts for the years 2013 and 2018 by chemical type and application, along with regional trends. This information is framed in the context of the current and future operating environment for petroleum refineries, including future trends in refined petroleum product demand and existing government regulations. The study also considers market environment factors, evaluates company market share and profiles major suppliers of refinery chemicals.
