Report Description

Demand for 2-Ethyl Hexanol in India stood at more than 100 KTPA in 2018 and is projected to grow at a healthy growth rate during the forecast period. 2-Ethyl Hexanol is majorly used to manufacture plasticizers, especially dioctyl phthalate (DOP) and 2-Ethyl Hexanol derivatives. DOP is further used to produce Polyvinyl chloride (PVC). However, the demand for PVC products is anticipated to slow down in the coming years. Moreover, increasing manufacturing of 2-Ethyl Hexanol derivatives, acrylate and methacrylate esters is further expected to fuel demand for 2-Ethyl Hexanol during the forecast period.

The Andhra Petrochemical Limited is the only company manufacturing oxo alcohols products in India, the company has an annual capacity of 55 KTPA to produce 2-ethyl hexanol. The inhouse production of the company is not enough to meet the domestic demand of India, thus a large portion of product is being imported. Moreover, Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited is also planning to enter the business vertical of oxo alcohols by expanding its Kochi refinery to produce oxo alcohols. BPCL is setting up plant to manufacture 2-ethyl hexanol with an annual capacity of 55 KTPA which is expected to be completed by the end of 2022. After the plant become operational, the dependency of 2-ethyl hexanol on imports is going to reduce, and the domestic production of both the companies together will be able to meet the domestic demand across the country.
