Cumene, also known as isopropylbenzene; is an organic compound based on aromatic hydrocarbon with an aliphatic substitution. Cumene is commercially produced as a pure compound by the alkylation process of benzene with propylene and stored in the form of cumene hydroperoxide to avoid oxidation. It is soluble in acetone, ether, and ethanol, but insoluble in water. Though it is a stable compound, but forms peroxides upon contact with air. Cumene is also found as a constituent of crude oil and refined fuel.
An increasing demand of cumene for various applications such as laminates, composites, and plastics, is a major factor anticipated to drive the growth of the global cumene market. In addition, an increasing adoption of cumene from industries such as adhesive and sealant, and paint and coating, is also expected to fuel the growth of the global market to a significant extent over the forecast period. Moreover, increasing demand for byproduct of cumene such as phenol and its derivatives for various applications is also anticipated to propel the growth of the target market over the long run.
However, the toxic nature of the product on exposure can cause health hazards such as skin irritation, headache etc., which may hamper the demand and restrain the growth of the target market. Additionally, fluctuation in crude oil prices resulted in the high price of the product, could restrain growth of the global market. Though, the use of product in the gasoline pool as a blending compound, is expected to create a major growth opportunity for the target market.
The Asia Pacific cumene market accounts for a highest share in terms of revenue in the global cumene market and is expected to maintain its dominance over the forecast period. China, India, and Japan are estimated to be major contributors in Asia Pacific region. The Europe market accounted for a significant share in the global market in terms of revenue and anticipated to witness a significant growth to certain extent, owing to rising demand for various applications. The North America cumene market is expected to witness a moderate growth during the forecast period, due to the growing demand of cumene from end users such as enamels, paints and coatings industry.
