Toluene Market Overview
 
Toluene Market is projected to be worth USD 33.23 Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 5.2% during the forecast period (2021 - 2030). Toluene is a colorless liquid that is insoluble in water. It is a monosubstituted chemical made comprised of a CH3 group connected to a phenyl group. Toluene, also known as methylbenzene, phenylmethane, and toluol, is predominantly created during the manufacturing of gasoline by reforming naphtha. Toluene is widely employed as an industrial raw material and a solvent in the production of a wide range of commercial goods. It is also used to make benzene, p-xylene for PET resins, and toluene diisocyanates (TDI) for polyurethane uses, as well as a solvent. Because of the methyl group in its chemical structure, it has low volatility, making it a useful octane-enhancer for motor gasoline blending.
 
The fast use of toluene solvent-based paints and coatings owing to rising building activities, rising demand for efficient gasoline, and rising demand for chemical intermediates generated from toluene such as benzene and xylene are all factors driving the worldwide toluene market. Furthermore, due to the booming oil and gas industry, toluene demand is expected to expand significantly over the assessment period. Rising crude oil refining around the world is expected to close the raw material demand gap, boosting market growth over the forecast period. The market is expected to develop due to rising automobile production and sales, as well as rising lubricant consumption. Moreover, significant urbanization in emerging nations, combined with rising disposable income, is expected to drive market expansion during the assessment period.

Regional Analysis


The different segmentations that are made into the toluene market based on the region are- Asia-Pacific, the Middle East and Africa, North America, Europe, and Latin America.


The Asia Pacific holds the largest Toluene market share in the year 2018. It is expected that this dominance in the region increases during the toluene market forecast period. Is she specifically going to all its expanding oil and gas industries and the lenient government regulations for the usage of toluene has led to opting out of many Toluene market trends. In the region of Asia Pacific countries such as India, China and South Korea are one of the leading markets. These countries show a great upsurge in the demand for toluene.


The second region is North America which holds the maximum toluene market size in the year 2018. This major drive is due to the presence of oil and gas leaders increasing building and construction activities expanding automotive industries which have directly led to an increase in the customer base. As the need for customer goods increases such as paints and coatings and polyurethane foams, These use Toluene as its primary solvent. This solvent increases the use of chemicals and their derivatives. These are the factors that increase toluene market growth in North America.


Europe is expected to show some growth following some governmental policies in these regions regarding the use of toluene. The slow growth however is expected due to the mature automotive market that uses Toluene in their gasoline fuel to increase the fuel quality. This is the reason for the slow and continuous demand for Toluene in this region.


In the region of the Middle East and Africa following market attributes demand due to the production and consumption of petroleum derivatives in the GCC countries.


In the region of Latin America, it is expected to show some retarded growth during the review period in the toluene market.
