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.
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.
