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

Format: Online | Last Updated: Nov 2021

[Online Quarterly Update] N-Nonylphenol Market has witnessed considerable growth by achieving a demand of 1.02 million tonnes in 2020 and is expected to grow at a healthy CAGR of 5.30% during the forecast period until 2030. Nonylphenols are the organic compounds that are composed of phenol bearing a 9 carbon tail. They are moderately soluble in water but, completely soluble in alcohol. Nonylphenols are of different structures of alkylphenols. They are extensively used in the manufacturing of antioxidants, oil additives, detergents, emulsifiers, solubilizers, and others. N-Nonylphenol compounds are the precursors to the commercially important non-ionic surfactants, Nonylphenol ethoxylates, and Alkylphenol ethoxylates, which are highly used in detergents, paints, pesticides, personal care products, plastics, etc. 
N-Nonylphenols are obtained industrially by the environmental degradation of Alkylphenol ethoxylates. They can also be synthesized industrially by the acid-catalyzed alkylation of phenol with a mixture of Nonene. 
Products that contain Nonylphenol ethoxylates are utilized for various applications including paper and mash producing, machine degreasers, material preparing, fiber scouring, etc. Due to the increasing population, the demand for Nonylphenol ethoxylates is expected to drive the market growth of sodium acetate, further propelling the demand for N-Nonylphenols across the globe. On the basis of end-use industry, the N-Nonylphenol market is segmented into Chemical, Agrochemicals, Cosmetics & Personal Care, Building, and Construction, Textiles and Leather Processing, Metal Working, Food & Beverages, Automotive, Pulp & Paper, Textiles, Oil & Gas, Power Generation, and Others. The chemical industry held the largest share of the N-Nonylphenol market in 2020 owing to its increasing usage as an intermediate for various chemicals in the chemical industry and is forecast to flourish in the next ten years. The increasing demand for N-Nonylphenol from the packaging industry to manufacture plastics and polymers is likely to accelerate the market growth of N-Nonylphenol around the world. Surging demand for Nonylphenol ethoxylates by the blooming cosmetics & personal care industry will augment the market growth of N-Nonylphenol around the world in upcoming years. In various emerging countries like China, India, and Thailand, the boosting cosmetics and personal care industry is a key driver for market growth.
In 2020, due to the onset of COVID-19, the N-Nonylphenol market has been drastically slowed down. Many manufacturing units of several end-user industries temporarily halted their operations and production in order to curb the spread of coronavirus. The demand for N-Nonylphenol by the major end-user chemical industry severely declined, which negatively affected the N-Nonylphenol market. The demand for N-Nonylphenols by the textiles industry was also impeded during the first half of 2020, which hindered the market growth of N-Nonylphenol. However, with the gradual opening of lockdowns, the markets and operations are resuming, which is likely to bolster the demand for N-Nonylphenol by the end of the year. 
Region-wise, the Asia Pacific region holds the major share of the N-Nonylphenol market, and the region is anticipated to maintain its dominance until 2030 due to the increasing demand for chemical intermediates and expansion of chemical industries in the region. In emerging economies like China and India, a growing number of major end-use industries is likely to boost the overall demand for N-Nonylphenol around the world. North America and Europe are the major consumers of N-Nonylphenol after the Asia Pacific owing to the increasing demand for Nonylphenols for the production of surfactants, emulsifiers, and chemical intermediates. 
Major players for N-Nonylphenol globally include Huntsman International LLC, Dover Chemical Corporation, SI Group, Inc., PCC Group, China Man-Made Fiber Corporation, AkzoNobel N.V., Clariant AG, The DOW Chemical Company, Hunstman, Stepan Company, India Glycols, SABIC, Solvay, PCC Exol SA, The DOW Chemical Company, Huntsman, Stepan Company and Others.
