India Maleic Anhydride market demand stood at 83 Thousand Tonnes in FY2021 and is forecast to reach 138.22 Thousand Tonnes by FY2030, growing at a healthy CAGR of 5.83% until FY2030. Maleic Anhydride is widely used in the manufacturing of unsaturated polyester resin used in the construction and plastic industry. Growing infrastructure and construction activities in India are expected to propel the demand for Maleic Anhydride in the coming years. Furthermore, Maleic Anhydride demand is witnessing a surge due to its use as an additive in lubricant manufacturing. Moreover, Maleic Anhydride is used to produce Copolymers, Malic Acid, Succinic Acid, and Fumaric Acid. Increasing demand for Malic Acid in the food and beverage industry as a flavoring agent and in the pharmaceutical industry as an ingredient raw material are major factors propelling the demand for Maleic Anhydride during the forecast years.
Due to the outbreak of COVID-19 in FY2020, the world economy was disrupted. The market was affected drastically, and production and manufacturing units were shut down. Furthermore, the major market players intentionally halted the production keeping their employee’s health and wellness in mind. With imposed new regulations of the COVID-19 and proper precautions, the market is anticipated to regain its growth in the years to come. The pandemic is slowly being subsided and the effects are tried to be overcome by various methods. Once the market regains the full function of its production unit, the market is bound to show robust growth in the forecast period.
In India, Maleic Anhydride is produced by Thirumalai Chemicals Ltd, I G Petrochemicals Limited. Other players operating in the India Maleic Anhydride market include Huntsman International LLC, LANXESS, etc. India is one of the major importers of Maleic Anhydride. During FY2020, in India, the import was more than 50 thousand tonnes, which is almost 32 percent higher compared to imports in FY2020. In the coming years, the demand is anticipated to increase, which will lead to a surge in its import, thereby posing a greater market opportunity for domestic players.
