Benzene Market Overview

According to Vantage Market Research, some of the main factors are projected to accelerate the Benzene market demand in the coming years. The growing demand for Benzene from end-use industries such as automotive, electronics, and construction drives the market growth. The high use of Benzene as a key ingredient in producing different products and materials such as resins, dyes, plastics, rubber, detergents, synthetic fiber, and others further drives the market growth.

We forecast that the ethylbenzene category in Benzene market sales will account for more than 40% in 2021 and is estimated to witness significant growth during 2022-2028. The key factors for category growth include the high demand for ethylbenzene from the styrene industry, as Benzene is a major feedstock in styrene manufacturing. Moreover, the high demand for Benzene as a solvent and fuel additive further drives the market demand in the coming years.

Asia Pacific dominated the Benzene market and is estimated to witness the highest CAGR in the coming years. The presence of key market players in the region and the enhanced government initiatives to support the chemical industry will drive market growth in the coming years. Besides, North America is anticipated to witness a considerable share in the coming years due to the growing petrochemical, packaging, and pharmaceutical industries.

Market Dynamics

Growing Demand for Styrene Polymers

The increased demand for styrene to manufacture polystyrene for use in the packaging industry is due to its lightweight, moisture resistance, and flexible properties to drive the market growth. Moreover, the increased demand for styrene from the automotive industry to manufacture tires further drives the market growth in the coming years.

Rising Demand for Domestic Cleaning Products

The high demand for domestic cleaning products is another key factor driving the market growth. Linear alkyl benzene is majorly used as a raw ingredient to manufacture linear Alkyl Benzene sulfonate (L.A.S.); hence the demand for Benzene is increasing. The growing demand for household cleaning products, including linear alkyl benzene, will drive the market's growth in the coming years.
