World Refinery Chemicals

Global oil refinery chemical demand will rise 3.5 percent annually through 2013, driven by tightening environmental laws and efforts to boost gasoline and diesel fuel yields. North America will remain the dominant regional market, while the Asia/Pacific and Africa/Mideast regions grow the fastest.

This study analyzes the 15.4 million metric ton world refinery chemical industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1998, 2003 and 2008, and forecasts for 2013 and 2018 by application (e.g., conversion processes, petroleum treatment processes, water treatment), product (e.g., merchant hydrogen, catalysts, pH adjusters, corrosion inhibitors), world region (e.g., North America, Asia/Pacific, Western Europe) and for 19 countries.

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 26 industry players, including Air Products and Chemicals, L’Air Liquide and Linde.
