Hexane Market Analysis: Plant Capacity, Production, Operating Efficiency, Technology, Demand & Supply, End-User Industries, Distribution Channel, Regional Demand, 2015-2030

Format: Online | Last Updated: Jun 2021

[Online Quarterly Update]Global hexane demand is projected to grow at a healthy CAGR of 3.21% during the forecast period. Hexane is a colourless fluid with a relatively low and narrow boiling range. It has low odor and quick drying properties. It is able to dissolve in many organic compounds and evaporate easily which makes it good solvent and diluent for a wide range of industrial applications. Structurally hexane has three isomers including n-hexane, iso hexane and neo hexane. Out of the three, n-hexane is the most sought after isomer of hexane. Depending upon the concentrations of n-hexane and purity there are two grades of hexane namely polymerization grade and food grade. The polymerization grade is used as a reaction medium for polymerization process. The extraction grade is used to extract edible oils which is the major application of hexane. The key application areas for hexane include polymerization process, specialist coatings and adhesives, pharmaceutical and food extraction, industrial cleaning and degreasing, textile and rubber manufacturing etc. Growing demand of edible oil coupled with the increasing demand of industrial solvents from the paints and adhesives industry is expected to drive the demand of hexane during the forecast period. Moreover, Availability of safer alternatives for oil extraction such as cyclohexane is expected to somehow hinder the market growth. 
Due to impact of COVID-19, hexane demand has declined drastically due to nationwide lockdowns and subsequent disruptions in supply chains. Construction and automotive sectors were the most severely hit sectors during the pandemic which had an impact on paints and adhesives industry which have application of hexane as solvent. However overall good demand growth has been observed in China from the manufacturing sector due to continuation of production activities after the lockdowns. 
Regionally, Asia Pacific region holds the major share of global demand for hexane due to growing demand for edible oils and commercial and residential construction and automotive sector. With the rising demand of end use industries including edible oil extraction, many companies have set up their manufacturing base in this region thereby increasing the overall production capacity. Increasing population and per capita income in emerging economies is another factor propelling demand growth for hexane in Asia Pacific.
