Global Resorcinol Market to Grow at 2.2% During 2024-2032, Facilitated by Increasing Application in Rubber Industry

December 30, 2019 | Chemical & Materials

As per the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Resorcinol Market Report by Application (Tire and Rubber Products, Wood Adhesives and Binders, UV Products and Dyes, Flame Retardants, and Others), Production Method (Benzene Disulfonation, Hydroperoxidation of Meta-Diisopropylbenzene, Hydrolysis of Meta-Phenylenediamine), End-Use Industry (Automotive, Building and Construction, Healthcare, Electrical and Electronics, and Others), and Region 2024-2032”, the global resorcinol market reached a value of US$ 487.7 Million in 2023. Resorcinol (C6H6O2), also known as m-dihydroxybenzene, is a white crystalline phenolic monomer, which has a mild odor and a bittersweet taste. It is soluble in ether, alcohol and water, and becomes pink when exposed to light. It is generally prepared by sulfonating benzene with fuming sulfuric acid and fusing the resulting benzenedisulfonic acid with caustic soda. It usually exists in two crystalline forms, namely the α- and β-form. Amongst these, α-resorcinol is procured through recrystallization from alcohol or benzene or spontaneous transformation from β-resorcinol below 71 degrees Celsius. On the other hand, the β -form is obtained when recrystallization is stable up to about 71 degrees Celsius under normal pressure conditions.

Global Resorcinol Market Trends:

One of the key factors strengthening the market growth is the application of resorcinol in the rubber industry. It is a vital component of adhesive resins used in the manufacturing of tires for trucks, passenger cars, off-road equipment, and other fiber-reinforced rubber mechanical goods like conveyor and driving belts. Apart from this, due to its cost-effectiveness, chemical stability and resistance to solvents, salt-water, acids and oil, resorcinol is widely utilized as a wood-binding agent. It also finds applications in the production of light screening agents to protect plastic products from ultraviolet (UV) rays. Besides this, it is also employed in the pharmaceutical sector as an antiseptic and disinfectant in topical pharmaceutical products for treating skin disorders and infections, which includes acne, calluses, warts and seborrheic dermatitis. Owing to these factors, the market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 2.2% during 2024-2032.
