Overview of the Chemical & Petrochemical Sector in India
Global chemical market size was estimated at USD 3.9 trillion in 2013 and is expected to grow at 3-4% per annum over the next 5 years to reach USD 4.7 trillion by 2018. India currently accounts for approximately 3% of the world chemical market. The Indian chemical and petrochemical industry expanded in 2013 despite weakness in key export markets and subdued growth in the domestic market. The Indian chemical and petrochemical industry currently stands at USD 118 Bn and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 8% for the next five years.
Bulk chemicals form the largest sub-segment of Indian chemical industry with 40% market share whereas the specialty chemical with 19% market share is the fastest growing segment. Together, Gujarat, Maharashtra and Uttar Pradesh account for more than 50% of Gross Value Add (GVA) and Gross Output of the chemical and petrochemical industry in India.
The petrochemicals industry is a significant industry for the Indian economy. The growth of this industry is closely linked to economic growth of a country. Today, petrochemical products permeate the entire spectrum of daily use items and cover almost every sphere of life like clothing, housing, construction, furniture, automobiles, household items, agriculture, horticulture, irrigation, packaging, medical appliances, electronics and electrical etc. The Indian petrochemical market has grown at a CAGR of 11% from USD 19.3 billion in FY11 to USD 24 billion in FY13. The demand for basic petrochemicals and end products petrochemicals is expected to grow at a CAGR of 10% to reach 16 mmtpa and 19.5 mn tons by FY18 respectively.
The current per capita consumption of products of chemical industry in India is about 1/10th of the world average. The low per capita consumption across industries and segments and strong growth outlook for the key end use are the key growth drivers for the chemical and petrochemical industry in India.
Chemical and petrochemical industry is human resource intensive industry and hence employs a large number of people across the world, currently the industry provides employment to about 1 million people in India. With the growing demand the manufacture and marketing of chemicals will continue to offer substantial employment opportunities both for skilled and unskilled persons. The industry also generates indirect employment for the chemicals, engineering, packaging and transport industry. With the additional emphasis on exports, there will be new opportunities in logistics and marketing as well.
