Format: Online | Last Updated: Nov 2021

[Online Quarterly Update]  Indian 4- Octylphenol market has shown significant growth by achieving 28 thousand tonnes in FY2020 and is projected to grow at an impressive CAGR of 6.25% during the forecast period until FY2030. 4-Octylphenol (C14H22O) also known as p-tert-Octylphenol comes under a type of high purity Alkylphenols, which is substituted at the para- position by an Octyl group. It is manufactured from diisobutylene and phenol using DIC's proprietary techniques. 4- Octylphenols play a huge role as a xenoestrogen, a surfactant, and a metabolite. They are extensively used for numerous commercial applications such as raw materials for synthetic chemicals, chemical intermediate to UV stabilizers, products for children (e.g., Toys, children's cosmetics), food packaging, paper plates, cutlery, oil phenolic resins, surfactants, pesticides, and many others. 4-Octylphenol also finds its applications in the manufacturing of dispersants, detergents, emulsifiers, wetting agents, foaming agents, cleaning agents, etc. Many industries use 4-Octylphenols as additives in the production of rubbers, lubricating oils, films, or molding materials in order to improve the stability and shelf life.
The surging demand for Phenolic resins by the electrical and domestic appliances market in India owing to the emerging economy and rapid urbanization is likely to propel the demand of 4- Octylphenol, which will further accelerate the Indian 4-Octylphenol market in upcoming years. India’s industry revenue for the manufacturing of electrical equipment using Phenolic resins was around USD 4.18 billion in FY2016 and is projected to grow USD 4.92 until FY2030. The demand for 4- Octylphenols as additives and adhesives by the building and construction end-user industry will boost the Indian 4-Octylphenol market in the forecast period due to increasing construction and infrastructure activities. 
In 2020, due to the onset of COVID-19, coronavirus had a far-reaching impact on the Indian 4- Octylphenol market. There was a decline in the demand for 4- Octylphenol by the rubber industry as it witnessed a huge economic downturn. Major drivers of the domestic rubber industry were highly affected including automotive, medical, aerospace, agriculture, and electrical appliances due to disruptions in the supply of raw materials. However, the surfactants industry was positively affected during the covid times as surfactants are consumed for a variety of applications. During the first half of 2020, demand for hard-surface cleaners and disinfectants surged significantly due to extreme sanitization and increased willingness of global consumers to keep their household clean, to lower the risk of infection, which further boosted the Indian market of 4-Octylphenol amid the pandemic.
The supply of 4- Octylphenol in the Indian market is significantly dependent upon the production and availability of phenol and diisobutylene. In India, consumption of 4- Octylphenol is perceived to vary with regions too. North and South regions in India account for major consumption of 4- Octylphenols due to the presence of a large number of end-user industries and vivid distribution channels.
Major players for Indian 4- Octylphenol Market include Chem Connection India, Rimpro India, Shubhra Industries, Unitop Chemicals Pvt., Ltd., AB enterprises, Noble Industries, Dyna Glycols Pvt., Ltd., Matangi Industries, India Glycols, Gujarat Chemicals, Otto Chemie Pvt. Ltd, and others.
