Synopsis of Toulene market


Toluene is a colorless, liquid, and water-insoluble. It is a mono-substituted compound, consisting of a CH3 group that is attached to a phenyl group. Toluene, also known as methylbenzene, phenylmethane and toluol, is produced primarily by reforming naphtha during the production of gasoline. Toluene is widely used as an industrial raw material and a solvent for manufacturing of many commercial products. Furthermore, it is used in the manufacturing of benzene, p-xylene for polyethylene terephthalate (PET) resins, and toluene diisocyanates (TDI) for polyurethane applications, and as a solvent. It has low volatility due to the methyl group in its chemical structure, which makes it a good octane-enhancer for motor gasoline blending.


As per our analysis, some of the prominent market factors and trends identified in the global toulene market include the rapid use of toluene solvent-based paints & coatings owing to increasing construction activities, rising demand for efficient gasoline, and increasing demand for chemical intermediates made from toluene such as benzene and xylene. Moreover, the demand for toluene is predicted to witness a significant growth over the assessment period due to surging oil & gas industry. Rising crude oil refining across the globe is anticipated to reduce the raw material demand gap, which can drive the market growth during the review period. Increasing automobile production and sales along with rising consumption of lubricants are estimated to fuel the growth of the market. Furthermore, rapid urbanization coupled with increasing disposable income in emerging economies is predicted to propel the growth of the market during the assessment period, 2017-2023. However, the implementation of strict regulations by various government bodies has restricted the use of toxic organic chemicals used in the production of toluene solvent, which is expected to hamper the growth of the market.
