The chemical industry in India is a key constituent of Indian economy, accounting for about 2.11 per cent of the GDP. Bulk chemicals account for 39 per cent of the Indian chemical industry, followed by Agro-chemicals 20.3 per cent and Specialty chemicals 19.5 per cent. India’s growing per capita consumption and demand for agriculture related chemicals offers huge scope of growth for the sector in the future.
India is one of the world’s leading producers of Dyes, Agro-Chemicals and Petrochemicals. With over 70,000 commercial products, India is the 6th largest producer of Chemicals in the world and 3rd largest producer in Asia. The industry is also the 3rd largest global producer of Agro-Chemicals. India accounts for 16% of world’s dye production. The Dyestuff sector is one of the important segments of the chemicals industry in India, having forward and backward linkages with a variety of sectors like textiles, leather, paper, plastics, printing inks and foodstuffs. India also produces a large number of fine and specialty chemicals, which have very specific uses and are essential for increasing industrial production.
India, with its skilled manpower and flourishing end user industries, has the right ingredients to emerge as the global hub for chemical manufacturing. However, the Government needs to undertake further reforms for the orderly growth of chemical industry. Regulations have been framed for import and export of chemicals, manufacturing of chemicals, transportation of chemicals, consumers’ interest in using chemicals and protection of human health, environment and for hazards and non-hazards chemicals. For India to align its chemical industry with those being developed and implemented internationally, it would require a relook on certain regulatory issues and investments in R&D to counter global competition.
Therefore, with the objective of discussing various issues, compliances and opportunities in Indian chemical industry, ASSOCHAM is organizing “Indian Chemical Industry - Challenges & Opportunities”-Summit-Cum Excellence Awards” at 09:00 a.m. on December 04, 2015 at Hotel Le-Meridien, New Delhi. The conference will be attended by large number of national and international stakeholders and will focus on making chemical sector vibrant.
