November 12, 2018

Various products namely Linear Low Density Polyethylene (LLDPE), High Density Polyethylene (HDPE), Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE), Polyestyrene (PS), Polypropylene (PP), Poly Vinyl Chloride (PVC) and Expandable Polystyrene (EX-PS) were produced under Polymers group of Major Petrochemicals during 2009-10 to 2016-17.

Production of LLDPE was 897.069 thousand metric tonne during 2010-11, up by 31.39% from 682.771 thousand metric tonne during 2009-10. We have seen annual growth of 9.44% in Production of LLDPE from 1204.568 thousand metric tonne during 2015-16 to 1318.263 thousand metric tonne during 2016-17. Production of HDPE was 887.193 thousand metric tonne during 2010-11, up by 3.61% from 856.3 thousand metric tonne during 2009-10. We have seen annual growth of 15.4% in Production of HDPE from 1317.151 thousand metric tonne during 2015-16 to 1520.037 thousand metric tonne during 2016-17.

We have observed an annual growth rate of -7.25% in Production of LDPE from 192.601 thousand metric tonne during 2009-10 to 178.628 thousand metric tonne during 2010-11. Annual growth rate of 0.86% has been seen in Production of LDPE to 201.762 thousand metric tonne during 2016-17 versus 200.032 thousand metric tonne during 2015-16. We have observed an annual growth rate of 9.65% in Production of PS from 269.549 thousand metric tonne during 2009-10 to 295.552 thousand metric tonne during 2010-11. Annual growth rate of 0.9% has been seen in Production of PS to 311.345 thousand metric tonne during 2016-17 versus 308.576 thousand metric tonne during 2015-16.

Production of PP was 2520.754 thousand metric tonne during 2009-10. It has increased by 8.52% to 2735.537 thousand metric tonne during 2010-11 over 2009-10. We have seen annual decline of -0.72% in Production of PP from 4284.424 thousand metric tonne during 2015-16 to 4253.392 thousand metric tonne during 2016-17. Production of PVC was 1109.535 thousand metric tonne during 2009-10. It has increased by 15.2% to 1278.177 thousand metric tonne during 2010-11 over 2009-10. We have seen annual growth of 1.64% in Production of PVC from 1437.889 thousand metric tonne during 2015-16 to 1461.527 thousand metric tonne during 2016-17. Production of EX-PS was 63.127 thousand metric tonne during 2009-10. It has increased by 12.79% to 71.201 thousand metric tonne during 2010-11 over 2009-10. We have seen annual growth of 12.27% in Production of EX-PS from 86.197 thousand metric tonne during 2015-16 to 96.772 thousand metric tonne during 2016-17.
