Petrochemical revenues have risen notably in the last four decades -- from $200,000 in 1976 to $17 billion in 2018, head of the National Petrochemical Company said.
“Sale of petrochemicals, both in the domestic and foreign markets, is projected to reach $37 billion by 2025,” ILNA reported Behzad Mohammadi as saying.
Close to 642 million tons of 8 basic petrochem products (benzene, toluene ethylene, ammonia, methanol, xylene, butadiene and propylene) are produced annually in the world, 3.6% of which 23 million tons are manufactured in Iran despite difficulties created by the new US sanctions, he noted.
Petrochemicals constitute more than one-fourth of Iran’s non-oil export earnings with products destined to 30 countries, namely neighboring states, China, India, Southeast Asia and Europe.
