Plastic Industry: Future Scenario & CIPET’s Role:

The plastic industry is poised for significant changes with sustained growth rate in all its facets in future. The current growth trend indicates that the three important sub-sectors of the industry namely processing, polymer production and machinery manufacturing will undergo significant changes with regard to structure of the industry, technological innovation, mergers and consolidation of the existing small units.  Processing units with large scale manufacturing facilities probably in excess of 2500 tonnes per annum are expected to grow steadily in the years to come.

The leading Indian raw material manufacturers like Indian Petrochemical Corporation Limited (IPCL), Gas Authority of India Limited (GAIL), Reliance Industries Limited (RIL) & Haldia Petrochemicals Limited (HPL) have world scale plants to supply polymers in the country. An estimated investment of about Rs.50, 000 crores in this sector have matured by the year 2000-2001. The capacity has grown by manifold from just 1.0 million tonnes per annum in 1990-1991 to over 4.8 million tonnes in 2006-2007.


It is estimated that by 2006-07, the number of units in operation in plastic processing sector would be around 22000 and the industry is expected to grow at the rate of about 12%-14% in terms of polymer consumption.  It is expected that a number of changes will take place in the processing sector, scales of operation, product line and process.  In view of globalisation of the trade, it will be imperative for units to be internationally competitive and therefore mergers, amalgamation and consolidation and would take place. It is expected that eventually by 2006-07 around 10,000-12,000 medium scale/large scale units would be able to operate successfully with expansion and diversification programmes. The small units below capacity of an average 600 tonnes per annum would find it difficult in operating plants economically and profitably. The growth in polymer consumption would be more emanating from existing units by way of expansion and diversification and less in terms of new units added to the industry in terms of green-field investment.

 The optimistic projections suggest that the total demand of commodity, engineering and high performance polymers/plastics will go up from the current consumption of around 4 million tonnes to 12.5 million tonnes by year 2010.

 The development and growth of plastics processing industry is dependent upon the availability of skilled and technically trained manpower. With a rapid development in the field of plastics processing using modern machines, there has been an increased demand of manpower for designing, tool making, plastics processing and quality assurance (Total Quality Management – TQM) to meet the diverse requirement of industries. It is estimated that with the increase of consumption of plastics material, additional 8 persons may be required for increase of 100 Tons per annum. Hence, the manpower demand will also increase as the polymer/plastics material consumption increases in the coming years. Since, CIPET is the only institute of its kind in South-Asia having state-of-art facilities and excellent infrastructure in the field of Plastics Engineering & Technology, necessity of CIPET services in terms of development of trained manpower for the plastics industry and technical support in different technology areas will be more relevant and  synonymous with the future growth of the plastics and allied industries.  CIPET’s services would be more congruous for the plastics and allied industry in the years to come in terms of specialised training, trained manpower support, technology support, quality and productivity improvement, developmental activities related to newer technologies etc.
