The largest application of aniline is in the preparation of methylene dianiline and related compounds by condensation with formaldehyde. The diamines synthesized through the aniline eletrophilic reaction are condensed with phosgene to give methylene diphenyl diisocyanate, a precursor to urethane polymers.

The manufacture of dye intermediates provides the primary impetus for the growth of aniline in the country. Other important applications of aniline are in rubber processing chemicals and herbicides among others. The western region is the leading consumer of aniline in the country, accounting for about 80% of the total domestic demand. The northern region has however, displayed impressive growth rates in recent years and is expected to witness a major boom in demand in the coming years.

As additives to rubber, aniline derivatives such as phenylenediamines and diphenylamine, work as antioxidants in several industries. The principal use of aniline in the dye industry is as a precursor to indigo, used extensively in the textile industry. Aniline is also used on a smaller scale in the production of the intrinsically conducting polymer polyaniline. Insulation sector is the largest end-user of aniline as aniline enhances the electrical strength of insulation materials.

Demand for Aniline is growing at a burgeoning pace in India. The demand for aniline grew at an annual rate of 9.4 % from fiscal year 2011-12 to 2016-17. Demand growth is expected to rise forward at about 9.9% per annum over the period of 2016-21. Demand for Aniline is met through a culmination of domestic production and imports. The growth of aniline in India has been dormant and sluggish in terms of capacity addition and production. While production rates are falling in India, there has been a steep rise in the quantity of aniline imports. However, on the flip side, due to new capacity addition by GNFC, there will not be a spurt rise in procurement of Aniline Imports. GNFC, HOCL and Anirox Pigments Limited are the key manufacturers of Aniline in India.

Global aniline demand is estimated to reach 8.1 Million Tons (MT) in fiscal year 2019-20. The demand for consumer goods and cars, in particular, is rising due to the growing prosperity of Asia Pacific and Latin American consumers, driving the global aniline market. Both these industries have traditionally relied on demand from North America and Europe, but in recent years, industrialization and urbanization in developing countries such as China and India have led to the automotive industry posting bumper figures and these two countries emerging as major markets for consumer goods.

Accordingly, the Asia Pacific market for aniline is the largest regional segment of the global market. These regions are expected to remain the leading regional segments of the global aniline market in the coming years, since the automotive and consumer goods industry in these regions is showing no signs of slowing down.
