Top executives from regional and international organizations came together at Gulf Petrochemicals and Chemicals Association’s (GPCA) Annual Forum that was held on November 27-29 in Dubai, in which ChemOrbis also took part as a media partner.

The region’s chemicals and petrochemicals industry including production capacity, sales revenue, employment figures and trade were discussed and evaluated during the forum. Low oil prices, diminishing availability of advantaged gas feedstock and reduced profitability were the main discussion issues among players as they heavily dominated this year.

“The three C’s - competitiveness, challenges and changes— will pave the way to future growth in the region. Asia is emerging as a competitive region and challenging the Arabian Gulf petrochemical industry to change and become more efficient and innovative. Past performance is no guarantee of future results. The competitive landscape is shifting beneath our feet. The fundamentals are changing – not only for the GCC, but for the customer as well,” said Yousef al-Benyan, chairman of GPCA.
