Global Toluene Market Expected to Increase at a CAGR of 4.4%

During the last ten years, global demand for toluene has been rapidly increasing. In 2000, global toluene demand stood at 10,380,023 tons, before increasing to 12,441,568 in 2010. The majority of the increased demand for toluene was from the Asia-Pacific region, and the same trend is expected to continue during the forecast period. Asia-Pacific is expected to account for 51.4% of global toluene demand by 2020, and global demand for toluene will grow to 19,603,561 tons by 2020.

China and South Korea to Drive Demand

China has emerged as a global petrochemical products manufacturing hub, due to its rapid economic development and the expansion of a number of industries. Production in China has the advantage of lower operating costs, and as a result China will significantly increase its toluene capacity in the future. China also imports a considerable amount of toluene to produce benzene, xylene, TDI and other solvents. Chinese demand for toluene is driving demand for toluene from the Asia-Pacific region. In addition, South Korea and India also have high GDP growth rates, and therefore toluene demand in these countries is also rising at a rapid rate.

Saudi Arabia to Drive Capacity Additions in the Middle East and Africa

The Middle East is also emerging as a production hub for various petrochemical commodities, because of its advantage of access to low cost natural gas and crude oil. Such products are the starting point for the production of any petrochemical product, and therefore Saudi Arabia has developed plans to expand toluene production in the country. By volume, the production of toluene in the Middle East and Africa is expected to increase at a CAGR of 3.7% during the forecast period.
