Seminar on "Indian Speciality Chemicals Industry: Feedstock & Standards"
HighLights
 
 
Description

The potential for growth in the chemicals segment is, undoubtedly, very large. Growth in India’s chemical industry will be driven by Speciality chemicals partly because hydrocarbon resources to build a globally competitive commodity chemicals industry is not adequate. Given the large pool of talent which is vital for building a knowledge-based Speciality chemicals business, this segment is likely to witness higher growth though it is still in the nascent stage. However, the growth of Speciality chemicals will require availability of key feedstocks at competitive prices.

 

With this background, CII National Committee on Chemicals commissioned a study on ten key materials which have wide applicability and not competitively available. The study has recommendations for the industry as well as Government to ensure that the industry attracts investment and grows to realize its true potential.

 

Evolution of consumption standards is a significant aspect that had been highlighted by the CII McKinsey report titled Building a Global Scale Speciality Chemicals Industry in India released in 2011, as key to the growth of the Speciality Chemical Industry in India.

 

In view of the above, Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), had organized a one-day Seminar on “Indian Speciality Chemicals Industry: Feedstock & Standards”, on 13th September, 2013, at Mumbai.

 

The seminar:

  • Provided domestic manufacturers a view of the enormous potential for manufacturing feedstock thereby helping them in taking positive business decisions
  • Gave the user’s perspective of the growth of the Speciality chemicals industry
  • Afforded an opportunity to manufacturers and suppliers of Speciality chemicals to share their view of the growth and the anticipated bottlenecks
  • Afforded an opportunity to deliberate upon evolving consumption standards through use of flame retardants and lead free and low VOC paints.

 

The seminar was attended by CEOs, COOs, Marketing Heads, Corporate planners, Technical/Commercial Executives from Chemicals and Petrochemicals Companies; Raw Material Suppliers; Manufacturers of Speciality Chemicals; Manufacturers and users of flame retardants; Manufacturers and users of paints; as well as Analysts, Consultants, and Senior Government Officials.
