Synthetic and Bio-Based Aniline Market Overview Aniline is commonly used as a raw material in the production of methylene diphenyl diisocyanate (MDI). It is an intermediate used to manufacture polyurethane. Polyurethane is used to make flexible & rigid PU foams, adhesives & sealants, elastomers, paints & coatings, and binders. Rigid PU foams are used in insulation applications in refrigeration, thermoware like construction, casserole, and automotive, among others. Flexible PU foams are used for furniture, bedding, and carpet underlay in the home furnishing industry. Also, in the automotive industry for automotive upholstery and other interior parts. Apart from that, it is used in the construction industry in the form of print rollers used for painting. Packaging industry for delicate electrical & electronics components, medical items; footwear industry for footwear midsoles; and textile industry. Furthermore, aniline is used in manufacturing rubber chemicals (anti-oxidants, accelerators, vulcanizing agents, anti-degradants), agrochemicals (pesticides, insecticides, herbicides, and fungicides), photographic chemical (hydroquinone), diphenylamine (rubber, petroleum, plastics, explosives), dyes & pigments, pharmaceuticals (Analgin, isopropyl antipyrine, sulpha drugs, oxyphenbutazone, vitamin B2), and various others specialty fibers. Increasing demand for MDI-based PU foams is critical for global synthetic and bio-based aniline market growth.

Aniline is an aromatic amine with the chemical formula C6H5NH2.
Aniline is manufactured by reduction of nitrobenzene under the presence of iron powder and acid. Nowadays, aniline is also manufactured using chlorobenzene.
The growing demand for polyurethane (PU) has been the major driver for the global market for synthetic biobased aniline, which is a key intermediate in the production of PU.
Asia Pacific is expected to dominate the global synthetic biobased aniline market due to the growing industrialization in the region.
Leading players in the synthetic biobased aniline market include BASF, Huntsman, and Sumitomo, among others.
