MEA has some of the largest oil producing countries in the world, namely, Saudi Arabia, Nigeria, and Algeria. These countries are also among the largest exporters of crude oil in the world and would continue to invest in the exploration and development of new oil fields. Owing to this, the demand for specialty chemicals used in oil fields is expected to rise in the region. Also, rising demand for specialty chemicals in the production of automotive lubricants is also expected to boost the MEA specialty chemicals market during the coming years.

The demand for the product in the developed countries of the region has reached the maturity stage, owing to the saturate demand from end user industries.
