[Online Quarterly Update] Global nitrotoluene demand is projected to grow at a healthy CAGR of 3.02% during the forecast period. Nitrotoluenes are produced by the direct nitration of toluene using concentrated nitric acid and sulphuric acid mixture. Nitrotoluene has three structural isomers which are ortho nitrotoluene, meta nitrotoluene and para nitrotoluene. O-nitrotoluene and m-nitrotoluene are yellow liquids whereas p-nitrotoluene appears as yellow crystals. Major end uses for the three structural isomers are agricultural chemical intermediates, dyestuffs, paints, pharmaceuticals, and plastic foams for o-nitrotoluene, dyestuff intermediates, and photographic developer intermediates for m-nitrotoluene and intermediates for paints, dyestuffs, and pharmaceuticals for p-nitrotoluene. Out of the three structural isomers, the p-nitrotoluene holds the major share of global demand for nitrotoluenes. Around 60% demand comes from p-nitrotoluene. Rise in the use of nitrotoluenes in the manufacture of dyestuffs which find application in the growing paints and coatings industry is expected to drive the demand of nitrotoluenes during the forecast period. Moreover, upcoming new technologies such as selective nitration for producing the desired isomer is expected to support further demand rise. However, the increasing demand for green chemicals for dyes and other chemical intermediates is expected to hinder the demand growth during the forecast period.
Owing to the impact of COVID-19, nitrotoluene demand has declined drastically due to nationwide lockdowns and subsequent disruptions in supply chains. However overall good demand growth has been observed in China from the manufacturing sector due to continuation of production activities after the lockdowns. 
Region wise, Asia Pacific region holds the major share of global demand for nitrotoluene due to growing demand for commercial and residential construction which has huge application of paints and coatings. Expanding production capacities by major nitrotoluene companies in recent years is also a major driver for nitrotoluene production and consumption in the region. In 2018 Aarti industries increased its annual nitrotoluene production capacity by 30 kilotons, making it one of the largest producers of the chemical in India. Increasing population and per capita income in emerging economies is another factor propelling demand growth for nitrotoluene in Asia Pacific.
