Industry Overview

The global Chemicals & Petrochemicals market is projected to grow from US $4.6 trillion in 2021 to US $6 trillion in 2028 whereas India’s Chemicals industry has the potential to reach US $300 billion in FY25 from US $178 billion in 2019. The Indian Chemicals industry is set to play a major role in achieving the country's ambitious US $5 trillion economy goal by 2025.

In order to reach the US $300 billion landmark, the Indian chemical industry needs to tap attractive business opportunities in all segments of chemicals and petrochemicals in a big way. The Chemicals & Petrochemicals sector would require an investment of US $100 billion in the next ten years, skilled and competent manpower, robust investment policies, strong regulatory framework promising labour reforms and trade agreements, lucrative tax incentives, and sustainable growth to propel India into the league of preferred manufacturing destinations globally. Sustainable growth requires an integrated and 360-degree approach and it includes both environmental concerns and economic development.

The chemicals industry plays a vital role in tackling major societal challenges such as climate change, global food supply shortages, and how we deal with plastic waste. Decarbonising the Chemicals & Petrochemicals industry and upping its sustainability quotient is one massive challenge ahead as the industry marches towards the promise of net-zero carbon footprint.

Sustainable growth would require a comprehensive and integrated 360-degree approach in order to address both environmental concerns as well as industrial and economic growth and development. Carbon neutrality, green and alternative energy sources like hydrogen, renewable energy, EV are new buzzwords of future changes that are staring the sector. Incremental adoption of technology and digitalization can play a significant role in reducing pollution and enhancing the implementation of global best sustainable practices.
