The report on global benzene market provides qualitative and quantitative analysis for the period of 2016 to 2024. The report predicts the global benzene market to grow with a CAGR of 4.5% over the forecast period of 2018-2024. The study on benzene market covers the analysis of the leading geographies such as North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and RoW for the period of 2016 to 2024.

Benzene is an organic chemical compound that contains only carbon-hydrogen atoms joined in the ring structure. Benzene is a liquid aromatic hydrocarbon with high flammable, volatile and toxic properties. Benzene is found in crude oils as a by-product of oil-refining processes. Benzene, if in comes in contact with a person, can cause health-related issues such as central nervous system damage, bone marrow damage and others, also breathing very high levels of benzene can result in death.

The benzene is a large volume commodity petrochemical that shows diverse applications in the chemical industry. The versatile applications served by the benzene is the key factor driving the benzene market worldwide. The major amount of produced benzene is essentially used in the production of various chemicals such as ethylbenzene, cumene and cyclohexane that are used in the Tire/Rubber Manufacturing, plastic, paint and coatings, printing and other industries. In addition, the rapidly growing demand of Styrene or polystyrene which are the derivatives of benzene, are used in various end-use industries which is likely to boost the growth of the benzene market.

The manufacturing of synthetic rubbers and polystyrene are the major applications of the Styrene. The rising uses of polystyrene in the food packaging, construction and in the manufacturing industries for insulation and manufacturing purpose is expected to contribute to the growth of the benzene market over the forecast period. However, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) recommends ban of benzene in consumer products because it has linked with various health related issues such as cancer of the white blood cells, blood disorders and abnormalities of genetic material that may hamper the market growth.

Moreover, rapidly increasing phenol consumption is expected to escalate the growth of benzene market in upcoming years. Phenol is one of the derivatives of benzene used in the production of household application and as intermediates for the industrial synthesis.

Geographically, Asia Pacific accounts for the nearly half of the global production and consumption of benzene. The factors such as favorable government regulations, growing end-use industries including electronics, packing, construction, paint and coating and many other, availability of cheap resources and skilled workforce are likely to fuel the growth of benzene market in this region.
