rapidly and consistently through the period 2007 to 2012, averaging growth of nearly 10% every year. Slower years were between 2010 and 2013 where the global recession, extended monsoon season and the eurozone crisis slightly curtailed growth. Generally, growth for LL/LDPE has been growing at 1.4 times that of the subcontinent’s GDP growth. 84% of the subcontinent’s demand is accounted for by India.

capable of producing both high density as well as linear grades. Swing plants in the region have tended to favour LLDPE grades however the ability to swing between grades makes calculating capacity problematic. All subcontinent LL/LDPE production comes from India. Production has been consistently lower than local demand and hence the region has become increasingly dependent on imports. In 2011 Indian imports were 625,000 tonnes but this increased to over 785,000 tonnes in 2012 (50% of demand). To cope with fast growth in demand there will be a number of new Indian plants coming on stream in 2013-2015. BCPL, Reliance, GAIL and OPaL will be investing in HD/LLDPE swing plants whilst Reliance Industries also plans a 400,000 tonnes/year LDPE plant as part of its USD12 billion capacity investment programme. While capacity is expected to exceed regional demand by 2015 overall the subcontinent will continue to rely on imports although India is expected to become a net exporter before 2016.
