As an export-oriented sector, Kuwait's petrochemicals industry will be highly dependent on external markets, particularly Asia. The global market downturn is affecting strategic decisions by the sector. Karo was looking to develop its production facilities and improve the performance and flexibility of its aromatics complex and Petrochemicals Industries Company (PIC) is examining the viability of more aromatics plants. However, there has been no further progress on these plans.

Externalities will be crucial to the performance of the Kuwaiti petrochemicals industry and unless the industry sustains a competitive edge, it will suffer diminishing margins on production. While the predominantly naphtha-fed sector has taken advantage of the recent decline in crude prices, it may struggle with the surge in output from Iran following sanctions relief as well as low-cost output from US shale-fed producers. Yet, it still has better prospects than most petrochemicals producers in the Arabian Gulf.
