Toluene, also known as toluol and methylbenzene, is a colorless, water-insoluble liquid, with a benzene-like odor. It exhibits beta-oxidant, depressant, hepatoprotective, anesthetic, and neurotransmitter properties. Toluene is an aromatic hydrocarbon that is used in many industrial applications, mostly as a solvent and industrial feedstock. It is also used in the explosives industry to manufacture flammable compounds and in the production of hair dyes. Moreover, due to its low sensitivity characteristics and high-octane ratings, toluene is considered as an ideal fuel for heavily loaded engines. According to the latest report, titled “Toluene Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2017-2022”, the global toluene market reached a value of US$ 21 Billion in 2016.

The growing applications of toluene and its derivatives in numerous industries represent the key growth inducing factors for the market. Besides, the wider use of toluene in gasoline blends, where it acts as octane booster and maintains the energy content of gasoline, has augmented the market growth. Additionally, the surging demand for aromatics in the petrochemical industry for the production of synthetic fibres, elastomers, agrochemicals, dyes, nail paints, etc. is driving the global toluene market globally. Apart from this, expansion in the end-use industries, particularly in the emerging markets, such as China, India, etc., has resulted in an augmented demand for toluene. According to the report, the market is anticipated to reach a value of more than US$ 28 Billion by 2022, exhibiting a CAGR of 5% during 2017-2022.

The report has segmented the market on the basis of technology into reformate process, pygas process, coke/coal process, and styrene process. Based on the application, benzene represents the largest segment, followed by solvents, xylene, TDI, and others. On a regional-basis, Asia Pacific is the leading market, followed by North America and Europe. Other major regions include the Middle East and Africa, and Latin America. Based on the import-export scenario of the market, the report finds that China is the largest importer whereas Korea is the largest exporter.
