[Online Quarterly Update]Indian Hydrochloric acid market is projected to grow at a healthy CAGR of 7.31% during the forecast period. Hydrochloric acid (HCl) is a colorless inorganic chemical with pungent smell. It can be produced by the combination of Hydrogen and Chlorine. It is extensively used in steel, textile, and food industries. HCl in the steel industry runs the operations in pickling unit where it helps in removing the impurities like carbon and rust. In the wake of growing steel industry in India, there is a boost in the demand of HCl in the market. Growing construction and mining activities are other major drivers for the Indian HCl market. The rising awareness regarding wastewater treatment is causing a surge in the production and demand of HCl in water treatment plants. India is a major exporter of HCl, refined petroleum and textiles are among the most exported products from India accounting for around 2% of India’s GDP. Moreover, with the increasing demand of HCl for the development of food and chemical products globally, the demand for Hydrochloric Acid exports from India is also expected to rise. Due to the of its lower cost and easy domestic availability, HCl has replaced the Sulfuric Acid in the steel pickling Industry. The rising demand of HCl has led the replacement of Sulfuric Acid in other cleaning industries and household applications. A major end use of Hydrochloric Acid is the oil well acidulation and manufacturing of dyes. 
In 2020, due to the onset of COVID-19, The food and beverage and textile industry has been severely impacted. the decline in the demand of chemicals and petrochemicals has created a slump in demand of Hydrochloric Acid. However, the rising demand of the Hydrochloric acid in the steel and textile industry will boost the HCl market during the forecast period. 
Region wise, western region holds the major share of Indian demand of Hydrochloric acid due to the growing demand of water treatment plants in west India, and the growing steel industry, the demand of hydrochloric acid is set to rise during the forecast period. The Grasim industries and GACL have largest production capacities in the western region.
