The chemical sector has witnessed growth of 13-14% in the last 5 years A number of initiatives have been proposed in the 12th 5-year plan (2012-2017) to boost the growth of Indian Chemical industry like Target to increase the share of manufacturing in GDP to at least 25% by 2025 (from current 16%). Investments in manufacturing in the chemical sector are absolutely essential to ensure growth of the Indian chemical industry, FDI inflow picked up in FY11 reaching USD 2,345 Mn and USD 4,041 Mn in FY12. Indian Chemical industry also managed to lead industrial IIP in FY13. As per CSO sources, Chemicals IIP for FY13 stood at 3.1% while the overall IIP was 0.8%. The Indian chemicals industry, which earned revenues in the range of $ 155-160 billion in 2013, is likely to grow at a rate of 11-12 percent in the next two to three years. The market is likely to grow at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 13-14 percent. “Product customization and understanding of unique customer needs has been one of the key success levers for the Indian chemical industry. The chemical industry can be broadly classified into two segments – organic and inorganic chemicals. Organic chemicals cover over half of all known chemical compounds, and include petrochemicals, drugs, cosmetics, agrochemicals, etc. Inorganic chemicals comprise alkalis, dyes and dyestuffs.
