India Polypropylene Market Assessment 2015-2030 – Tremendous Growth Opportunities in the Manufacturing of PPE – ResearchAndMarkets.com

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "India Polypropylene Market: Plant Capacity, Production, Operating Efficiency, Process, Demand & Supply, Grade, Application, End Use, Distribution Channel, Region, Competition, Trade, Customer & Price Intelligence Market Analysis, 2015-2030" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The demand for Polypropylene (PP) in India grew at a CAGR of around 8.51% during 2015-2019 and is expected to achieve a healthy growth rate during the forecast period.

Recently, the product gained popularity as a raw material for manufacturing Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), an essential kit recommended by WHO for medical personnel to avoid coronavirus transmission. Increasing government investments in manufacturing PPE kits backed by surge in the demand from other medical products is likely to give the Indian Polypropylene market a tremendous boost in the upcoming years. Moreover, rise in the demand for BOPP (bi-axially oriented polypropylene) films from the flexible packaging sector mainly from packaged fresh and frozen foods and pharmaceutical sector is also likely to support the growth of PP market in the forecast period.

Sudden outbreak of COVID-19 rendered a sharp decline in the country's Polypropylene demand causing inventories to pile up at unprecedented levels because of sudden halt in downstream manufacturing activities due to nationwide lockdown. However, as a key raw material for manufacturing personal protective equipment (PPE), the demand outlook for some grades remained uplifted. Industrialists reported that the outbreak, has supported the demand for PP in the medical sector for the production of masks, injection syringes, and PPE kits which consume non-woven PP, fibre grade and transparent PP (TPP) grade.

However, because unit consumption is too small, actual demand for PP has been subdued since the onset of the pandemic. Meanwhile, the demand from the sectors like infrastructure and daily necessities has dip sharply triggering a fall in other grades amid already existing uncertainties due to nationwide ban on single-use plastics implemented with effect from October 2019.

In addition, the demand for Polypropylene from the automotive sector remained lull in Q4FY20 due to plant shutdowns and lack of buying sentiments. However, restart of automobile plants with ease in lockdown restrictions has led to a gradual pick up in the PP volumes produced and procured. With major players like RIL, IOCL and OPAL ambitiously expanding their polyolefins sectors, the Indian PP industry is expected to witness tremendous growth heightened by new capacity additions which are scheduled for the next five years.

One such project under construction is HPCL Rajasthan Refinery Ltd's (HRRL's) 181,000-bpd integrated refinery and petrochemical complex which is still under construction in the Barmer District, Rajasthan. The refinery will possess two 490 KTPA Polypropylene units each, thereby propelling the growth in the country's PP market. Latest technological investments in the country's Polypropylene sector such as adoption of LyondellBasell's 5th generation Spheripol polypropylene process technology by HPCL-Mittal Energy Limited (HMEL) for its 500 KT per year plant in Bathinda, India, will further propel the growth of PP market in the subsequent years.

Years Considered

  • Historical Years: 2015-2019
  • Base Year: 2020
  • Estimated Year: 2021
  • Forecast Period: 2022-2030

Objective of the Study

  • The primary objective of the study was to evaluate and forecast polypropylene capacity, production, demand, inventory, and demand - supply gap in India.
  • To categorize polypropylene demand based on end-use, grade, application, region and sales channel.
  • To study trade dynamics and company share in the Indian polypropylene market.
  • To identify major customers of polypropylene in India.
  • To evaluate and forecast polypropylene pricing by grade in the Indian polypropylene market.
  • To identify and profile major companies operating in the Indian polypropylene market.
  • To identify major news, deals and expansion plans in the Indian polypropylene market.

The Demand for polypropylene in India is currently being met through domestic production as well as imports. As compared to the previous fiscal, the total PP imports in India increased by 2.6 % in 2019-20 while declined by almost 17% in 2018-19. This is clearly indicative of the fact that India's PP capacity is sufficient to support the domestic demand.

Some of the major players operating in the Indian polypropylene market are Reliance Industries Limited, Indian Oil Corporation Limited, HPCL-Mittal Energy Limited, Haldia Petrochemicals Limited, ONGC Petro Additions Limited, Mangalore Refinery and Petrochemicals Limited, Brahmaputra Cracker and Polymers Limited. Exxon Mobil Corporation, LyondellBasell Industries and Sinopec are some of the global players operating in the PP market.

Import of Propylene increased by almost 2.6 per cent in FY 2020 and PP yearly prices were assessed at USD XXX per MT on bulk contract basis. Polypropylene CFR prices in India fell by $20 per tonne and settled around $930-960 per tonne in India in Q4FY20 due to COVID-19 related uncertainties. However, with downstream sectors restarting their production activities, prices are likely to show an uptrend by the Q2FY21.
