With their participation in the 15th edition of the Gulf Petrochemicals and Chemicals Association (GPCA) Annual Forum, DP World’s flagship Jebel Ali hub, including Jebel Ali Port and Jebel Ali Free Zone (Jafza), which play an important role in enabling the petrochemical sector in the UAE and the Middle East, will highlight the sector’s growth prospects and competitive offerings as reported by Trade Arabia.

The event will take place in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, from December 7 to 9.

“For years, the UAE and the Middle East area have been recognised as a thriving petrochemical hub. Petrochemicals are essential for any industry, and petrochemicals are used in 95% of all produced goods, including electronics, furniture, appliances, textiles, and many other items. This makes it a significant economic driver, according to DP World.

According to industry research and consulting firm Precedence Research, the worldwide petrochemical market is predicted to increase at a CAGR of 5.1% between 2021 and 2030, according to Abdulla Bin Damithan, CEO and Managing Director, DP World UAE & Jafza.

The American Chemistry Council (ACC) predicts that global chemical output volume will increase by 3.9% in 2021. As a result, the industry is trending upward. The petrochemicals sector is also a key pillar of the UAE’s Industrial Strategy, dubbed “Operation 300bn,” which aims to boost GDP from Dh133 billion to Dh300 billion by 2031.

“We want to take advantage of critical trade shows like GPCA to accelerate this growth, which will benefit our existing partners with whom we have long-term relationships. It will also enable us to reach out to additional partners who will be able to benefit from our cutting-edge facilities in Jafza as well as our specialised petrochemical terminal in Jebel Ali Port to develop their operations.”
