Format: Online | Last Updated: Nov 2021

[Online Quarterly Update] The Indian N-Nonylphenol market has shown significant growth as it reached 95 thousand tonnes in 2020 is expected to grow at an impressive CAGR of 6.50% in the forecast period until 2030. Nonylphenols belong to the family of organic compounds that bears a 9-carbon chain of alkylphenols. There are different isomers of Nonylphenol, among which 4-Nonylphenol is the most widely produced and marketed Nonylphenol. N-Nonylphenols are produced naturally by the environmental degradation of Alkylphenol ethoxylates. Industrial production of N-Nonylphenols is done by the acid-catalyzed alkylation of phenol with a mixture of nonenes. N-Nonylphenols are extensively used in numerous applications including a surfactant in detergents, antioxidants, lubricating oil additives, laundry - Dish detergents, emulsifiers, solubilizers, textiles, and also for the Production of Nonylphenol Ethoxylates. They are the precursors to the commercially important non-ionic surfactants, Nonylphenol ethoxylates, and Alkylphenol ethoxylates, which are widely used in detergents, paints, pesticides, personal care products, cosmetics plastics, polymers, etc. 
The growing demand for N-Nonylphenols by key end-user industries including chemical, textile, cosmetics & personal care, automotive, paper & pulp, and others is likely to augment the market growth of N-Nonylphenols in India. In India, according to the Bureau of Indian standards, there are no specific standards mentioned for Nonylphenol or Nonylphenol ethoxylates for water and wastewater. However, it is prohibited to use Nonylphenol in cosmetics, which can hinder the growth of the N-Nonylphenol market in India. The surging demand of Nonylphenols for the production of chemicals and chemical intermediates by the flourishing chemical industry is expected to boost the Indian market of N-Nonylphenol in upcoming years. Increasing domestic production of plastics in India due to the investments by the Indian government up to USD 6.3 million in order to expand the packaging industries to manufacture plastics and polymer, will drive the Indian market of N-Nonylphenol over the next ten years. 
In 2020, due to the outbreak of COVID-19, the Indian N-Nonylphenol market witnessed a drastic slowdown. Several end-user industries temporarily halted their operations and production units in order to curb the spread of coronavirus. One of the major end-user industries of N-Nonylphenol i.e., the chemical industry witnessed a major economic downturn during the first half of 2020, as Nonylphenols are highly used in the production of chemical intermediates, which negatively affected the Indian N-Nonylphenol market. However, with the uplifting of lockdowns, the markets are slowing resuming, which is likely to bolster the demand for N-Nonylphenol by the end of the year. 
In India, consumption of N-Nonylphenol varies in different regions. North and South regions in India account for major consumption and production of N-Nonylphenols due to the presence of a large number of end-user industries and vivid distribution channels.
