The India Propylene Market Has Grown Significantly in the Past Years and Reached 6.3 Million Tonnes in Fy2022 and is Expected to Further Grow at a Steady CAGR of 6.01% During the Forecast Period Until Fy2035

The India Propylene market has grown significantly in the past years and reached 6.3 million tonnes in FY2022 and is expected to further grow at a steady CAGR of 6.01% during the forecast period until FY2035. Rising demand of polypropylene for flexible food packaging and producing other plastic commodities is anticipated to cause Propylene market expansion in India.

Propylene is a colorless and combustible gas with chemical formula C3H6 which is synthesized from petroleum. Primarily, propylene is used to make polypropylene polymers for injection molding, fibres, and cumene (used in phenol production). Additionally, isopropanol, acrylic acid, oxo alcohols, and propylene oxide are all made from propylene. Polypropylene, a significant member of the polyolefin resin family, is molded or extruded into a wide variety of plastic goods and parts. Polypropylene displays properties like hardness, elasticity, low weight, and heat resistance and find application in various industries such as automobile components, flexible food packaging, upholstery, camping goods, etc. Polypropylene is also frequently utilized in the automotive sector, including for batteries casings, tray and beverage holders, bumpers, interior details, and door moldings. With the growing demand of automobiles with the growing per capita income and modernization in the nation, the demand of polypropylene is anticipated to rise, resulting an expected rise in the Propylene consumption. Owing to these reasons, the Propylene market is estimated to reach approximately 13 million tonnes by FY2035.

Based on the region, the Propylene market is segmented into West, South, North, and South. In the historic period of FY2015-FY2021, West India has been dominating the market and accounted about 37% of the Propylene market in FY2022. Gujarat is being the largest consumer of propylene owing to the location of numerous polypropylene production sites located in this state. In FY2022, Gujarat remained the dominant state for the manufacturing of propylene and polypropylene homopolymer (PPHP). India Oil Corporation Limited (IOCL) is aiming to construct up a new manufacturing line in Gujarat with a capacity of about 500 KTPA. This line is expected to be operational by FY2025. In Vadinar, Gujarat, a propylene recovery unit is anticipated to be established by a new market player, Nayara Energy Limited.

Based on end-use, the India Propylene market is segregated into Polypropylene, Isopropanol, Acrylonitrile, Oxo alcohol, and Others. Among these industries, the Polypropylene industry is dominating the Propylene market. In FY2022, this industry consumed 90% of the Propylene market. With the food and beverage industry's growing need for flexible packaging made of polypropylene films, the propylene industry is anticipated to further expand in the forecast period.

Major players in the India Propylene market are Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited, Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Limited, Indian Oil Corporation Limited, Reliance Industries Limited, Haldia Petrochemicals Limited, HPCL-Mittal Energy Limited, ONGC Petro additions Limited, and Others.
