Growth of Chemical Industry in India - Infographic

India is the sixth-largest producer of chemicals in the world.

Advantage India

Growing
Demand

* Rise in demand from end-user industries such as food processing, personal care and home care is driving development of different segments in India’s specialty chemicals market.

* The domestic chemicals sector's small and medium enterprises are expected to showcase 18-23% revenue growth in FY22, owing to an improvement in domestic demand and higher realisation due to high prices of chemicals.

Opportunities

* India’s specialty chemicals companies are expanding their capacities to cater to rising demand from domestic and overseas.

* With global companies seeking to de-risk their supply chains, which are dependent on China, the chemical sector in India has the opportunity for a significant growth.

Policy
Support

* The government plans to introduce production-linked incentive (PLI) scheme to promote domestic manufacturing of agrochemicals.

* Under the Union Budget 2022-23 the government allocated Rs. 209 crores (US$ 27.43 million) to the Department of Chemicals and Petrochemicals.

Increasing
Investments
and spending

* FDI inflows in the chemicals sector (other than fertilizers) reached US$ 19.09 billion between April 2000 to December 2021.

* In November 2021, Indian Oil Corporation (IOCL) announced plans to invest Rs. 3,681 crore (US$ 495.22 million) to set up India’s first mega-scale maleic anhydride unit for manufacturing high-value specialty chemicals at its Panipat Refinery in Haryana.
