The article analyzes the capacity build-up of petrochemical industries in the Middle East. An analysis from Nexant ChemSystems reveals that the total volume expansions in 2008 will dwarf what has already been established. In spite of this, the Middle East is still predicted to account for a modest proportion of total world output. To aid the previewed conflict, some business strategies like the diversification downstream strategy are being pursued, particularly in Saudi Arabia.
