Benzene Market 2026 – What will be the Short-term Impact of Coronavirus? | Fortune Business Insights™

What is Benzene??

Benzene is an organic chemical compound with the molecular formula C₆H₆. The benzene molecule is composed of six carbon atoms joined in a ring with one hydrogen atom attached to each. As it contains only carbon and hydrogen atoms, benzene is classed as a hydrocarbon.

What is Benzene Used for?

Benzene is basically used in making Plastics, pesticides, drugs, dyes, lubricants and more.

Benzene is a natural constituent of crude oil and is one of the elementary petrochemicals. Due to the cyclic continuous pi bond between the carbon atoms, benzene is classed as an aromatic hydrocarbon, the second [n]-annulene ([6]-annulene).

It is sometimes abbreviated PhH. Benzene is a colorless and highly flammable liquid with a sweet smell, and is responsible for the aroma around petrol (gasoline) stations. It is used primarily as a precursor to the manufacture of chemicals with more complex structure, such as ethylbenzene and cumene, of which billions of kilograms are produced annually. As benzene has a high octane number, aromatic derivatives like toluene and xylene typically comprise up to 25% of gasoline (petrol).

Benzene itself has been limited to less than 1% in gasoline because it is a known human carcinogen. Most non-industrial applications have been limited as well for the same reason.

Styrene is used in the production of various products, such as polystyrene, styrene-acrylonitrile (SAN) resins, acrylonitrilie-butadiene-styrene (ABS), styrene-butadiene elastomers. Styrene polymers are used in multiple products, such as televisions, disposable medical products and consumer electronics.

According to the report, Benzene is primarily used in petrochemical industries to synthesize its derivatives, which have several applications in polymers, chemicals, agricultural, and others. The market is segmented into alkyl benzene, chloro benzene, cyclohexane, nitrobenzene, phenol, styrene, ethyl benzene, cumene, and others. Ethyl benzene is expected to account for maximum share in the market. ethyl benzene is one of the significant benzene derivatives, which is a feedstock for styrene.

The contract was valued at $60 million. The deal will focus on optimizing the core technology, overall process integration and large-scale deployment of carbon capture solutions. The agreement of ExxonMobil is expected to bolster the healthy growth of the market in the forthcoming years.

The harmful effects of benzene and its derivatives on human health and environment is predicted to restrict the growth of the market during the forecast period. Prolonged exposure to ethylbenzene has been found to irritate the throat and eyes. Moreover, the US Department of Health and Services has classified benzene as a human carcinogen. These factors together are expected to hamper the growth of the market in the foreseeable future.

Presence of Leading Players to Boost Benzene Market Growth in North America

Geographically, the benzene market demand is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. Asia-Pacific is presently leading the market. The region is predicted to remain dominant owing to the increasing demand from end-users such as packaging, construction, and electronics & home appliances.

In Asia-Pacific, China is the major producer and consumer owing to the rising consumption of plastic in automotive applications, and the rising use of polyurethane foams in the furniture industry.

North America holds second-largest position in the Benzene Market due to numerous oil & gas exploration activities. The increasing production capacities of petrochemical products and rising demand for benzene derivatives in lubricant applications and rubber manufacturing is expected to boost the benzene market trends in North America.
