Phenol Market Report and Forecast 2017-2022


Phenol, also known as carbolic acid, is an aromatic organic compound with the molecular formula C6H5OH. This acid is produced on an industrial level by mixing propylene with benzene under cumene process. Phenol has well diversified applications across various sectors. The major use of phenol which consumes two-third of its production is conversion to precursors for plastics. In medical sector, phenol is a precursor to a large collection of drugs, most notably, aspirin and also many herbicides and pharmaceutical drugs. It is used to cure Pharyngitis (inflammation of the pharynx, which is the back of the throat). In the aviation industry, it is used for the removal of epoxy, polyurethane and other chemically resistant coatings. Phenol derivatives are also used in the preparation of cosmetics including sunscreens, hair colorings, and skin lightening preparations. During 2009-2016, the global phenol market grew at a CAGR of around 18%. The consumption of phenol is primarily driven by the agriculture (particularly fungicides) and the animal husbandry sector which account for the majority of its consumption.
