The origin of the Indian petrochemical industry can be traced to the 1970s. The sector witnessed rapid growth patterns in the 1980s and 1990s. The industry has recorded high levels of growth and has been a major contributor to the growth of India. The product portfolio of the country’s petrochemical industry chiefly comprises of synthetic rubber i.e. synthetic fiber, performance plastics, plastic processing industry, and polymers.

When seen in the overall context of the Indian economy, the petrochemical sector has been one of the fastest growth rate of around 14 percent. The huge contribution of this sector to the economy can be seen from that fact that this figure is more than twice the gross domestic product growth of the country. The sector has witnessed huge levels of investment which are essential for its development and continuous growth. The dominant part of the petrochemical industry comprises of polymers production.
