The chemical industry is among the most diversified industrial sectors, including a wide variety of products, from basic chemicals to research driven specialised products, at different levels across the industry supply chain. The fundamental nature and diversity of the industry is best understood from the fact that the industry itself is the largest consumer of its products, accounting for around 33% of total consumption. The industry has a weight of 14% in the Index of Industrial Production, giving an indication of the importance the sector holds in Indian industrial growth.
