The Indian plastics industry made a promising beginning in 1957 with the production of polystyrene. Thereafter, significant progress has been made, and the industry has grown and diversified rapidly. The industry spans the country and hosts more than 2,000 exporters. It employs about 4 million people and comprises more than 30,000 processing units, 85-90 per cent of which are small and medium-sized enterprises.
India is one of the most promising exporters of plastics among developing countries. The plastics industry produces and exports a wide range of raw materials, plastic-moulded extruded goods, polyester films, laminates, moulded/soft luggage items, writing instruments, plastic woven sacks and bags, polyvinyl chloride (PVC), leather cloth and sheeting, packaging, consumer goods, sanitary fittings, electrical accessories, laboratory/medical surgical ware, tarpaulins, laminates, fishnets, travel ware, and others.
Demand from original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) has led to producers focusing more on delivering products customised in line with end-user needs. Moreover, the Indian plastics industry has started manufacturing specific items to meet customer requirements. Design, style, and pattern are set based on the requirements of customers in export markets.
The Indian plastics industry offers excellent potential in terms of capacity, infrastructure and cheap labour availability. It is supported by a large number of polymer producers, and plastic process machinery and mould manufacturers in the country.
Among the industry’s major strengths is the availability of raw materials in the country. Thus, plastic processors do not have to depend on imports. These raw materials, including polypropylene, high-density polyethylene, low-density polyethylene and PVC, are manufactured domestically.
