Benzene Market Analysis: Plant Capacity, Production, Operating Efficiency, Demand & Supply, Technology, Competition, Trade, Customer & Price Intelligence Market Analysis, 2030

Format: Online | Last Updated: Apr 2020

[Online Quarterly Update]Global Benzene demand stood at 52.94 Million Tonnes in 2020 and is forecast to reach 78.03 Million Tonnes by 2030, growing at a healthy CAGR of 3.81% until 2030. Benzene is a colorless organic compound. It is widely used as a chemical intermediate to produce a wide range of chemicals such as ethylbenzene, cumene, cyclohexane, nitrobenzene, linear alkyl benzene, etc. Growing consumption of Benzene derivatives in the automotive industry for manufacturing synthetic rubber has increased Benzene demand in the global market and the product demand is anticipated to increase further due to robust growth in the automotive market. Benzene is majorly being produced by Pygas followed by Naphtha reformate. Elevating demand for Cumene to produce acetone with applications in automotive and architectural industries is also contributing to the growth of the Global Benzene market. Rising demand for rubber processing chemicals, nylon reins and synthetic fibers is also fascinating the downstream market of Benzene derivatives. Ethylbenzene, one of Benzene's derivatives, finds application in producing styrene and growing demand of styrene-based polymers such as polystyrene, styrene acrylonitrile reins acrylonitrile butadiene styrene rubber in the disposable medical devices and consumer electronics is also boosting Benzene market globally. Amongst the five regions (Asia-Pacific, Europe, North America, Middle East & Africa and South America), Asia Pacific region holds the largest volume share of global Benzene market. Recently, working from home imposed by the government due to COVID-19 could fall gasoline demand. Moreover, working from home is boosting greater usage of home food delivery, online shopping, electronic devices, and electrical appliances, which will contribute to Benzene's spurring demand during the forecast period. 
Being one of the widely used organic compounds in the petrochemical industry, benzene market suffered a major hit from the global economic recession caused by COVID-19. Significant drops in sales of aromatic products, consumer appliances, fabrics, electronic components, etc. led to a significantly reduced demand for benzene. However, as the world is gradually unwinding, there has been a rise in benzene prices with increased demand from multiple sectors.
