Petrochemicals products are used rapidly in making pharmaceutical ingredients in recent years. Petrochemicals significantly minimize the incidence of nosocomial infections, which include infections transmitted by germs from other patients, hospital food, and inadequately hygienic environments. Petrochemicals are also included in hand sanitizer in the form of carbomer polymers and glycerin. Phenol and Cumene are used in the preparation of preparatory substances for manufacturing aspirin and penicillin. Penicillin is one of the most used antibiotic agents which are used to cure a number of ailments such as pneumonia, spinal meningitis, diphtheria, and throat infections. In addition, a number of petrochemical resins have applications in drug purification methods.

This method assists in the cost-cutting procedure and simplifies the bulk medicine manufacturing process. The growing development of pharmaceutical industries across the globe is expected to create high demand for petrochemicals. According to research in 2020, the pharmaceutical industry in U.S. generated approximately USD 425 billion in revenue. Growing pharmaceutical sector creates high demand for petrochemicals in this country.
