Algeria has focused on low added-value production, relying on commodity chemicals that are highly priceresponsive 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 with regard to product diversification. As a result, 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.

Domestic consumption of petrochemicals is set to be lacklustre in 2016, with economic growth at a relatively subdued 2.9% and consumer and business confidence remaining low. Lower oil prices are responsible for the erosion of economic performance. Additionally, they militate against Algeria's ability to capitalise on its gas resources to establish gas-based petrochemicals production.

The country has around 178,000 tonnes per annum (tpa) of polyethylene, 40,000tpa of vinyl chloride monomer, 35,000tpa of polyvinyl chloride, 120,000tpa of methanol and 990,000tpa of ammonia, which should increase to 5.6mn tpa when new fertiliser plants enter production. These rises in capacity will also result in the production capacity for urea hitting 3.59mn tpa.
