The Gulf Petrochemicals and Chemicals Association(GPCA) represents the downstream hydrocarbon industry in the Arabian Gulf. Established in 2006, the association voices the common interests of more than 240 member companies from the chemical and allied industries, accounting for over 95 percent of chemical output in the Gulf region. The industry makes up the second largest manufacturing sector in the region, producing over U.S. $100 billion of products a year.
The association supports the region’s petrochemical and chemical industry through advocacy, networking, and thought leadership initiatives that help member companies to connect, to share and advance knowledge, to contribute to international dialogue, and to become prime influencers in shaping the future of the global petrochemicals industry. GPCA manages six working committees — Plastics, Supply Chain, Fertilizers, International Trade, Research and Innovation, and Responsible Care — and organizes six world-class events each year. The association also publishes an annual report, regular newsletters, and reports.
