More than 80% of the chemical warehousing and storage market in North America is represented by the US. Raw materials (like natural gas) for chemical production is available at low costs, which is encouraging large scale chemical production in the region, leading to increased chemical storage and exports. This region handles 15% of the global oil production and 10% of global natural gas production.
Many chemical vendors outsource their logistics to reduce transportation costs by 20%-30% and enhance their distribution networks. Several vendors in this region possess strong financial and operational capabilities, which are leading to an increasing number of strategic alliances in the market.
The chemical warehousing and storage market in the region is expected to grow at a CAGR of close to 10%. Established chemical manufacturing companies are shifting their bases to developing countries due to availability of a large consumer base and lower operating costs. The chemical manufacturing giant, BASF announced a new catalyst manufacturing base in China. Such moves are bringing down the operating and manufacturing costs. The fall in oil prices is pushing the manufacturers of petrochemicals to rework their strategies to cut their costs.
In 2015, base chemicals like petrochemicals and its derivatives accounted for 59.5% of total chemical sales in the EU region. Specialty chemical sales in the region alone accounted for generating USD 309.16 billion in the same year.
“The most important region for the chemical warehousing and storage market in the region is the Middle East. The Middle East accounts for 48% of the global oil reserves and 43% of the global gas reserves. Therefore, the production of chemicals is high in this region, and it supplies large amounts of chemical feedstock to Europe and Asia. The chemical industry in the region has 19% of the global capacity”, says Sharan.
In 2014, the region had around 46 refineries and produced 7.7 million barrels of oil per day. However, storing and transporting goods within the region and outside requires special care and attention. This is due to the complex rules and regulations governing the use and transportation of chemicals in the Middle East. Despite this, the market will exhibit a CAGR of over 10% in the forecast period.
