"--A View of the Rapidly Growing Petrochemical Industry in the Middle East- -

In recent years, Saudi Arabia and other Middle Eastern oil-producing nations have been attempting to diversify their industrial structures as they seek to reduce their dependencies on oil exports. In this respect, high hopes are held for the petrochemical industry in particular due to the competitiveness of the region's abundant supply of low-cost feedstocks. The industry has been pushing forward with aggressive expansion that has included foreign investment in joint ventures, and its presence in the global petrochemical arena continues to grow year by year.

Trends in the Middle Eastern petrochemical industry that directly influence the global industry should be paid close attention to by every company and organization either directly or indirectly associated with the petrochemical industry. This report is a comprehensive update of our groundbreaking publication "Middle Eastern Petrochemical Industry 2000." Taking into account the complex political and economic factors characteristic of the Middle Eastern region, a significant volume of the latest data and original information from the field has been added, and trends in the petrochemical industries of each Middle Eastern country's petrochemical industry have been compiled and analyzed. Moreover, an all-new chapter on supply/demand and competitiveness of Middle Eastern petrochemical products has been added.

The following information is provided in detail in "Middle Eastern Petrochemical Industry 2004."

*Outline, summary, and positioning of the Middle Eastern petrochemical industry
*Status and outlook of the petrochemical industries of 13 countries in the Middle East:
Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar, UAE, Oman, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Turkey, Egypt, Libya, Algeria, and Bahrain
*Chemical industry administrative organizations, systems, and foreign investment incentives
*Details of petrochemical enterprises
*Production capacities for petrochemical products and balances of petrochemical products in complexes
*Status and outlook of supply and demand for petrochemical products
*Cost competitiveness
*Status and prospects of petrochemical feedstocks
*Status of European, American, and Japanese companies' activities in the Middle East

Since the original report was published in 2000, our research team has spent about three more years undertaking further research and analysis. In addition to extensive experience regarding the Middle Eastern petrochemical industry and information collected through the course of our day-to-day work, we have undertaken numerous field trips to visit government offices, companies, and organizations in Middle Eastern countries, Japan, the U.S., and Europe, and through their cooperation we were able to obtain a large volume of valuable information. We feel sure that this publication on the Middle Eastern petrochemical industry, about which information is generally scarce, will prove to be very useful to you.

We wish to convey our deep gratitude to all persons in the Middle East, Japan, the U.S., and Europe for the kind cooperation they extended to us to make the publication of this report possible.
