Organic Chemicals

In 2021, India exported $22.8 Billion in organic chemicals, making it the 7th largest organic chemical exporter in the world. Organic chemicals from India are mainly exported to the United States, China, Germany, and Brazil. 

Indian Industry

The Indian organic chemical industry is supported by a strong domestic market, a growing export market, a favorable regulatory environment, and the availability of a skilled workforce. Methanol, aniline, alkylamines, and its derivatives formaldehyde, acetic acid, and phenol are the six main organic chemicals manufactured in India, accounting for about two-thirds of the country’s basic organic chemical sector.

Indian manufacturing of organic chemicals is mostly concentrated in the western state of Gujarat. The production of organic chemicals rose 3% during the 2021 fiscal year. The United States imports some of its organic chemicals from India, and it is currently one the largest consumers of organic chemicals in the world. 

Regulatory Framework

Both India and the United States have a number of regulations that apply to the export of Indian organic chemicals. These regulations are designed to ensure the safety, quality, and integrity of the chemical products being exported, as well as to protect the environment and public health.

In India, the Directorate General of Foreign Trade issues licenses and certifications for the export of chemical products, and ensures compliance with international regulations and standards.

In the United States, the export of organic chemicals is regulated by a number of agencies, including the US Environmental Protection Agency, the Food and Drug Administration, and the Department of Commerce. These agencies set standards for the production, labeling, and use of chemical products, as well as regulate the import of chemical products to ensure that they meet these standards.
