According to a report compiled by the Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry in India, India’s petrochemical industry is expected to reach $100 billion by the end of 2020 from its current value of $40 billion.

The petrochemical sector is one of the fastest growing industries in India with a growth rate of 13% owing to persistently-increasing demand and reportedly forms 30% of India’s $120 billion chemical industry, which is set to reach $250 billion by 2020. Indian petrochemical producers are set to make new investments worth more than $25 billion to meet the country’s increasing demand, according to ASSOCHAM.

The report also showed that the country’s polymer consumption has reached 6.2 million tons, representing 3% of global consumption of 200 million tons.
