The global benzene market grew at a CAGR of 4.5% during 2014-2019. Benzene, with the chemical formula C6H6, is a colorless and highly inflammable chemical compound that has a sweet, gasoline-like odor. It is formed as a by-product of the oil refining process and can also be found in crude oil, gasoline and cigarette smoke. Although widely used for diversified industrial purposes, its non-industrial usage is limited owing to its toxic nature. Continuous exposure to benzene can have detrimental health effects and it has also been identified as a carcinogen, a substance that can potentially cause cancer. Benzene was earlier used widely for de-caffeinating coffee and degreasing metals, however, less toxic chemicals are now rapidly replacing it in these applications. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the global benzene market to continue its moderate growth during the next five years.
An increase in the utilization of insulation materials in construction activities is one of the key contributing factors to the market growth. In addition to this, owing to the growing urbanization and the rising disposable incomes, there has been an increase in the demand for consumer products such as thinners and furniture wax across the globe. Furthermore, benzene serves as a key solvent in several commercial, industrial and research operations. For instance, alkyl benzene is widely used to produce surfactants for the manufacturing of detergents. Cyclohexane, another derivative of benzene, is a basic raw material for the production of nylon, which is used to manufacture textiles. The flourishing paints and coatings industry (PCI) is another major growth-inducing factor as it incorporates benzene derivatives in the manufacturing of paints and lacquers.
