This site provides detailed information on the Acetyls. It also focuses on other factors that contributed to the growth of Acetyls inIndia.

Acetyls are organic compounds that are being produced by reacting acetic acid. The acetic acid used for the production of Acetyls is made by reacting carbon monoxide with methanol. Further, methanol can also be used to produce acetic acid and formaldehyde. Acetyls like vinyl acetate monomer (VAM) are also produced when acetic acid is made to react with ethylene.

Acetic acid is used in the production of -

  • Vinyl Acetate Monomer
  • PET bottles
  • Films
  • Paints
  • Plastics
  • Pharmaceuticals

Vinyl Acetate Monomer or VAM is used to manufacture the following -

  • Paints
  • Adhesives
  • Film packaging
  • Magnetic wire insulation

TheIndian Acetyls production growth is quite fascinating. The Acetyls that are being produced inIndia are at par with world standard. Thus,India shares a good portion of Acetyls business in world market. Asian, African, and even Arab countries buyIndian Acetyls. The demand forIndian Acetyls is high mainly because of its quality and competitive pricing.India's low cost and high end Acetyls manufacturing expertise coupled with developing world class infrastructure is the main leveraging factor for the rise of this industry. Further, with the consolidation of the infrastructure development this industry will be big success in years to come.India offers Acetyls at a substantial discount than its western counterparts while delivering the same class of output. Like, in the western countries the rates are few times higher than what it costs inIndia. Petrochemicals products thatIndia produces are -
