The major competitors of OCI

Of course, even though OCI is currently positioned as one of the leaders in its sector of activity in the world, it is nonetheless competing with certain major players in this sector. We now propose to discover who are the main opponents of OCI on the international market.

BASF 

This German chemical company is currently the world leader in the chemical industry. The company currently employs more than 34,000 people in the development, testing, manufacturing and sale of several thousand different chemicals, including nitrogen-based fertilizers that compete directly with OCI's.

Monsanto / Bayer

The Monsanto company is an American biotechnology and agricultural biochemical company that was recently acquired by the Bayer company. Even today, Monsanto remains one of the international leaders in the segment of chemical fertilizers and other products for agriculture and is therefore a serious competitor of OCI.


The major partners of OCI

Finally, we will now talk about OCI's strategic allies by presenting two important partnerships that have been signed by this company in recent years and that have had a positive impact on its profitability:

ADNOC

In particular, in 2019, OCI announced, in collaboration with Abu Dhabi Oil Company, the merger of their subsidiaries specialized in the production and distribution of fertilizers. The Sorfert subsidiary is 51% owned by OCI and 49% by Sonatrach and thus falls under the umbrella of this new entity which aims to become the new world leader in nitrogen fertilizers.

Orascom

In 2013, the Sorfrert plant had indeed partnered with OCI in the industrial zone of Arzew and was commissioned quickly i.e. in July of that year. The production capacity of this unit was planned at 2,200 tons of ammonia per day and 3,400 tons of urea per day. The project was initiated in 2007 with a relative majority for OCI and has experienced some delay in its actual implementation.
