Cumene Market Overview:Cumene is commercially produced using Friedel–Crafts alkylation of benzene with propylene. Cumene manufacturers contribute around 22% of total benzene consumption. The initial way for producing cumene was by the liquid phase alkylation of benzene with sulfuric acid as a catalyst, however, due to the intricate neutralization and reuse procedures necessary, as well as corrosive environment issues, this approach has been substantially superseded. As a substitute, the catalyst was solid phosphoric acid supplemented by alumina. To know about the Research Methodology :- Request Free Sample Report Commercial manufacturing has used zeolite-based catalysts since the late-1990s. Cumene production efficiency in this technique is typically 71-80 percent. The remaining ingredients are mostly polyisopropyl benzenes. A new cumene method has been devised that leverages aluminum chloride as a catalyst. For this procedure, the total conversion of cumene can be as high as 85%.

Cumene Market Dynamics:The unexpected outbreak of the coronavirus disease has reduced international demand for cumene, resulting in reduced demand for cumene phenol and acetone equivalents. Due to the postponement of industrial activity, the phenol segment witnessed a decline in its growth in 2021. The effects of the outbreak on the industry, and consequent supply chain activities reduced phenol demand. As a result, cumene’s industrial consumption declined in 2021. Additionally, the outbreak began to damage cumene's primary end-user sectors, including cosmetic products and hygiene products, paints and enamels, aviation fuels, and polymer manufacturers. The decreased sales owing to the viral outbreak undermined cumene demand for a long time. It is likely to witness lucrative growth opportunities in the forecast period because of its growing use as a catalyst in chemical synthesis reactions. End-user sectors that utilize cumene and its derivative-based goods e.g. construction are growing quickly, positively influencing the market in question. The healthcare concerns associated with cumene are expected to restrain the overall market growth. Cumene is found in a wide range of oil products. In humans, short-term inhalation exposure to cumene can result in migraines, nausea, sleepiness, minor mental confusion, and fainting. Cumene has a powerful central nervous system depressive activity in animals, with a gradual induction period and long persistence of psychoactive effects. Cumene is an irritant to the skin and the eyes. There is no evidence known of cumene's chronic, hormonal, neurodevelopmental, or malignant impacts on human health. Animal studies have found that inhaling cumene causes increased hepatic, nephrological, and other problems. Cumene has been categorized by the Environmental Protection Agency as a Group D substance, meaning it is not carcinogenic to humans.
Cumene Market Segment Analysis:By Application, the Phenol segment is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.4% in the aforementioned forecast period. Phenol is used extensively in a variety of sectors. Hardwood, window panes, DVDs, electronics, sports gear, fiberglass sailboats, automobile parts and peripherals, motherboards, and flat-panel displays are some of the most popular phenol applications. Cumene is widely used in the manufacturing of phenol, which is one of its most important uses. Cumene hydroperoxide is formed via the liquid-phase combustion of cumene with oxygen molecules, which are then degraded into phenol and acetone using only a catalyst. The oxidation reaction necessitates the usage of pure cumene. The manufacturing of Bisphenol A, which is made from phenol and acetone, is the single largest marketplace for phenol. BPA is then commonly used in the manufacture of polycarbonate and epoxy resins. Because polycarbonate and epoxy resins are utilized in a variety of industries, phenol is a critical element or product in the cumene industry. Phenol is also a vital ingredient of phenolic sealants, which are utilized in timber production e.g. plywood and wood composite board. It's also utilized to make phenolic resins, which are used to make thermal-resistant elements for home appliances, tabletop and floor laminates, and factory molds. Additionally, it is an important intermediary in the manufacture of cleansers, agrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, and colors.
Cumene Market Regional Insights:China is expected to dominate the cumene market at the end of the forecast period due to the high demand for gasoline, jet fuels, and diesel in the country. Additionally, the Civil Aviation Administration of China reports that the country is one of the biggest markets for domestic flight travelers. For the previous 6 years, the country's civilian aircraft industry has gradually grown. As per the Boeing Commercial Aircraft estimations, the country's commercial aircraft deliveries would be over 8500 by 2040, which is anticipated to boost the country's use of aviation fuel. Moreover, Chinese flight firms want to acquire around 7,700 new aircraft for nearly US$1.1 trillion over the next 20 years, which is likely to drive the market demand for cumene in gasoline-based blends for aviation fuel in China. In the past, phenol production statistics were erratic, but in recent years, they have stabilized. In 2021, the United States produced 1.1 million tons of phenol. The output of phenol in India has also witnessed a change. In India, phenol output in the Fiscal year 2021 was nearly 57 thousand tons, from 65 thousand tons in 2021. Cumene was the world's 2074th most traded product in 2021, with a total trade value of $861 million. Cumene exports fell by 34 % between 2021 and 2029, from $1.31 billion to $861 million. Cumene commerce accounts for 0.0051% of total global trade.
