Hydrogen Peroxide demand in India grew at a CAGR of more than 5% during 2015-2020 and is projected to witness a robust growth during the forecast period. Increasing use of Hydrogen Peroxide in versatile applications like pulp and paper industry, textile, water treatment and its usage in food and beverage industry is triggering the product’s overall demand. Although, increased digitization has dropped down the overall paper demand, packaging sector still acts as a supporting factor. Moreover, growing public awareness has compelled most of paper manufacturers to invest heavily on greener technologies to be used in paper manufacturing process where Hydrogen Peroxide finds its use.

Countries like India and China are the manufacturing hub for industrial Hydrogen Peroxide and thus pose a promising market for industrial Hydrogen Peroxide. With paper and pulp industry as the key user of Hydrogen Peroxide in India, the demand for Hydrogen Peroxide is set to increase due to improved performance of paper industry over the past few years. Hydrogen is a key raw material for Hydrogen Peroxide, which is obtained by processing natural gas. Hence, natural gas prices have a strong influence on the overall production cost of Hydrogen Peroxide.

Rapid expansion of Hydrogen Peroxide capacity in India with new domestic players setting up new H2O2 plants and the old players rigorously expanding their capacities has made the India’s Hydrogen Peroxide market more competitive. However, strong demand from the paper industry driving the sales and anti-dumping duty shielding the product margins, are anticipated to give a strong push to India’s Hydrogen Peroxide market over the next five years. Hydrogen Peroxide market in India has been segmented into North, South, East and West. West region is the lead consumer of Hydrogen Peroxide owing to increased demand from pulp and paper mills predominantly located in this region.

Years Considered for this Report:
  • 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 Hydrogen Peroxide capacity, production, demand, inventory, and demand – supply gap in India.  
  • To categorize Hydrogen Peroxide demand based on end use, grade, region and sales channel. 
  • To study trade dynamics and company share in India Hydrogen Peroxide market. 
  • To identify major customers of Hydrogen Peroxide in India.
  • To evaluate and forecast Hydrogen Peroxide pricing by grade in India Hydrogen Peroxide market.
  • To identify and profile major companies operating in India Hydrogen Peroxide market.
  • To identify major news, deals and expansion plans in India Hydrogen Peroxide market. 
Major players manufacturing Hydrogen Peroxide in India include National Peroxide Limited, India Peroxide Limited, Gujarat Alkalies And Chemicals Limited, Hindustan Organics Chemicals Limited, Asian Peroxides Limited and others. In order to expand its chemicals business, Meghmani Organics Limited is planning to set up a new 25,000 MTPA Hydrogen Peroxide (50%) plant and National Peroxide Limited is planning to expand its Kalyan plant capacity from 95KTPA to 150 KTPA in FY’20. New entries into the Hydrogen Peroxide business will increase competition among already existing players.

 The imports of Hydrogen Peroxide contribute to nearly 20% of India’s total demand. The imports majorly come from Thailand, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Korea and Taiwan. National Peroxide Limited and Hindustan Organic Chemicals Ltd. had filed an application in April, 2018 before Directorate General of Anti-Dumping & Allied Duties to carry out anti-dumping investigation and impose anti-dumping duty on imports of Hydrogen Peroxide from Bangladesh, Taiwan, Korea, Indonesia, Pakistan and Thailand. With implementation of anti-dumping duty on six countries i.e. Bangladesh, Taiwan, South Korea, Indonesia, Pakistan, and Thailand, domestic players are now expecting higher profit margins. 

Peroxide prices were assessed at INR XXX per MT on bulk contract basis, increased by about 2.57 per cent over FY 19. 
To extract data for India Hydrogen Peroxide market, primary research surveys were conducted with Hydrogen Peroxide manufacturers, suppliers, distributors, wholesalers and end users. While interviewing, the respondents were also inquired about their competitors. Through this technique, ChemAnalyst was able to include manufacturers that could not be identified due to the limitations of secondary research. Moreover, ChemAnalyst analyzed various end user segments and projected a positive outlook for India Hydrogen Peroxide market over the coming years. 

ChemAnalyst calculated Hydrogen Peroxide demand in India by analyzing the historical data and demand forecast was carried out considering crude oil prices. ChemAnalyst sourced these values from industry experts and company representatives and externally validated through analyzing historical sales data of respective manufacturers to arrive at the overall market size.
