Cumene Market (Application: Phenol/Acetone, Others) - Global Industry Analysis, Market Size, Opportunities and Forecast by 2022

Category : Chemicals and Materials | Delivery Format : PDF | Status: Published | Report ID : ARC649


Cumene is an inflammable organic compound, also recognized as isopropyl-benzene. This compound is derived from an aromatic hydrocarbon with an aliphatic replacement. It is a chief component of refined crude oil and fuels and is used in widespread range of engineering work as a base chemical compound to produce cumene hydroperoxide. This compound further produces two commercially vital chemicals namely phenol and acetone. It is used in fuel additives, enamels, lacquers, adhesives, sealant, in manufacturing of high octane production fuels, and as a solvent in paints.

Market Dynamics

The global cumene market is experiencing substantial growth opportunities globally, due to surge in demand for acetone and phenol and their by-products. Moreover, overall economic growth, increase in per capita disposable earnings, and surge in the usage of bisphenol-A & phenolic resins are projected to propel the growth of this market throughout the forecast period. Furthermore, growth in demand for phenol in several industries such as laminates, composites and plastics are expected to supplement the global market growth. Conversely, hazardous health effects of cumene and volatile prices of crude oil may hinder the growth of cumene market.

Cumene Market

On the basis of application, cumene market is bifurcated into phenol/acetones and others (blending component, solvent etc.). In 2016, the phenol/acetones segment in Asia-Pacific held highest market share in terms of volume and revenue and is anticipated to mirror this trend during years to come. In addition, Europe is estimated to witness highest growth during the forecast period in terms of both value and volume from others application sector. Growing population and need for cumene as fuel additive is highly driving the growth of this market.
