Domestic DOP & DBP capacity in India is about 155KTA, which is sufficient to meet domestic consumption. But poor capacity utilization rate (about 43%) over the years has forced end users to import the chemicals. They come from a number of countries, primarily from Republic of Korea, Taiwan and Malaysia.

The imports of DOP have shown an increasing trend in absolute terms, as well as when compared to domestic production. Demand on the other hand has grown at a rate of about 2.9%. It is considered a very sensitive product and many nations have placed a ban on its use, especially on the use of pesticides and insecticides developed using DOP/DBP. Therefore their global consumption has declined drastically. In India, only HIL manufactures insecticides and pesticides based on DOP/DBP.
