The objective of this work was to analyse the scientometric parameters for chemical engineering publications. We have compared the number of journal publications and citations by various countries and institutions. The publication record in terms of quantitative aspects of the number of publications from China has increased exponentially over the last decade and has overtaken USA.However, the citation analysis indicates that there is ample scope for improvement. Thus, USA continues to maintain its leadership position with regard to impact in the field. Analysis of the output of selected Indian universities/organizations against that of the top universities in the world, indicated that the records of top institutions from India are not comparable to the best universities in USA, but are comparable to the best in Asia and are significantly better than the best universities in China.
