Silkflex Polymers (India) Limited IPO – Industry & Market Potential

The Indian chemical industry has numerous opportunities, considering the supply chain disruption in China and the trade conflict between the US, Europe, and China. Anti-pollution measures in China will also create opportunities for the Indian chemical industry in specific segments. 

Additional support, in terms of fiscal incentives, such as tax breaks and special incentives through PCPIRs or SEZs to encourage downstream units, will enhance the production and development of the industry. The dedicated integrated manufacturing hubs under the Petroleum, Chemicals, and Petrochemicals Investment Regions (PCPIR) policy will attract an investment of Rs. 20 lakh crore (US$ 276.46 billion) by 2035. 

To bring about structural changes in the workings of the domestic chemical industry, future investments should focus not only on the transportation of fuels such as petrol and diesel but also on crude-to-chemicals complexes or refineries set up to cater to the production of chemicals.
