The petrochemical industry is currently facing difficulty with pressure on prices and margins.

Petrochemicals play a vital role in economic development and growth of the country as it enables the growth of other sectors in economy which includes agriculture, infrastructure, healthcare, textiles and consumer durables.

The petrochemical industry is currently facing difficulty with pressure on prices and margins.

Domestic industry has made huge investments in creating new capacities for products like Polyethylene and Polypropylene.

In order to maintain the financial viability of these new investments, appropriate fiscal support is critical. In certain key products like Poly Vinyl Chloride, investment has been severely lagging demand growth due to a lack of a facilitative fiscal structure. This is undermining the “Make in India” campaign and the vision for India’s leadership in manufacturing.

There are already large imports and huge outflow of foreign exchange. The situation would get aggravated as the trade gap continues to widen.

Per capita plastic consumption in India is still hovering at 11 kgs as compared to 46 kgs in China 65 Kgs in Europe and above 100 kgs in USA. . This signifies huge potential for future However, this sector also has negative public perception basically for reasons of improper plastic waste.
