Top 15 Companies in India by Net Profit from Commodity Chemicals Sector (Feb 2024 update)

A class of chemicals known as commodity chemicals, bulk chemicals, or bulk commodities are produced on a massive scale to meet the demands of international markets. Chemical trade magazines and websites like Chemical Week and ICIS regularly publish the average prices of commodity chemicals.

Analysts at S&P Global Commodity Insights predict that the Indian market for chemical commodity products will expand by about 7% in 2023 and 8% in 2024. This exceeds economic growth, which for the fiscal years 2024–2026 is estimated by S&P Global Ratings to be between 6% and 7.1% annually.

India intends to increase its polymer capacity significantly through 2024 and beyond. The new 1.2 million mt/year PE capacity of HPCL-Mittal Energy became operational in 2023. The 1 million mt/year PE and 1.2 million mt/year PP at HPCL’s Rajasthan Refinery are expected to be completed in 2024, while company sources indicate that Nayara Energy’s new 440,000–450,000 mt/year PP plant in Vadinar is anticipated to begin operations in 2024. In 2025, additional capacities, such as GAIL’s PP line in Usar, are also anticipated.
