About Sipchem

An identity we shaped

As one of the leading and most ambitious petrochemical companies in the world, Sipchem strives to deliver excellence through our sustainable, high-quality polymer and petrochemical products. Our consistent growth and success since Sipchem’s inception in 1999 have enabled us to achieve a market presence spanning more than 40 countries with over 15 products and 1,442 employees from 27 nationalities. One of the major milestones in our journey has been the merger of Saudi International Petrochemical Company and Sahara Petrochemical Company in 2019 to form a stronger national entity.

Today, our assets are worth $6.3 billion, and our market value is around $5.3 billion. We are listed on Tadawul and included in the MSCI Emerging Markets Index. Our business strategy is fully aligned with Saudi Vision 2030, and we are proud to have been recognized as one of the top 100 companies in Saudi Arabia under the $1.3 trillion Shareek private sector investment program.
