Growing Demand for Phenol and Acetone Likely to Drive the Market Growth of Cumene

The utilisation of cumene in the production of phenol and acetone is driving the market growth of cumene. The cumene is oxidised to hydroperoxide to yield phenol and acetone, which is considered the most economical method, thereby bolstering the market growth. The expanding demand for phenol in manufacturing phenol resins, pharmaceuticals, rubber chemicals, dyes, and disinfectants is fuelling the market for cumene. The rising use of phenol by customers to keep the surroundings clean, owing to the pandemic, has also supported the market growth in the historical period.

In addition, the increasing use of acetone, a by-product in the production of phenol for numerous applications such as pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and electronics, is resulting in the expansion of the cumene industry. The rising inclination towards acetone for removing nail polishes, oil stains in domestic spaces, cleaning electronic gadgets, and improving the efficacy of medicines are providing impetus to the development of the cumene industry.

 

The Asia Pacific to Account for a Substantial Share in the Market for Cumene

The expanding development of various industries, particularly plastic and the multi-faceted application of cumene is accelerating the market growth of cumene in the Asia Pacific region. The increasing imports of petroleum and production of diverse petroleum products in countries such as China is leading to the market development of cumene.

 

Cumene: Market Segmentation

Cumene, also known as isopropyl benzene, is a chemical compound that is produced by the reaction of benzene and propene using an acid catalyst. The production of cumene is based on the Friedel–Crafts alkylation reactions. The organic compound is a colourless, flammable liquid that is insoluble in water and has a gasoline-like odour.

Rising Applications of Cumene in Various Industries to Bolster the Market Growth of Cumene

The growing applications of cumene in several industries are significantly catalysing the market development of cumene. The rising demand for plastics is augmenting the market owing to the use of cumene in the production of plastics such as phenol-formaldehyde resins, polystyrene, and polycarbonates. In addition, cumene plays a critical role as a solvent in the manufacturing of paints and other types of coatings, which is propelling the industry due to the increasing construction activities worldwide.

Moreover, the government initiatives in boosting the production of chemicals such as cumene for providing raw materials to several end-use industries are driving the market growth. For instance, in March 2021, the Government of India announced that it is considering the construction of Nayara Energy, a petrochemical project to produce petrochemicals such as cumene, at Vadinar, Gujarat. Further, the plant expansions of cumene and its end products such as phenol by leading industry players are expected to aid the market for cumene in the forecast period.
