Phenol is an aromatic compound with the molecular formula C6H5OH. It occurs in a white crystalline form at room temperature and is mildly acidic and quite toxic. Due to stronger hydrogen bonding, it is more soluble in water than alcohols and has higher boiling points as compared to other hydrocarbons with similar molecular weight. Currently, phenol finds many applications in household products and as a precursor or an intermediate for the synthesis of many chemical compounds and materials. According to this research’s recently published report titled “Phenol Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2018-2023”, the global demand for phenol is currently being driven by an increasing demand of its various derivatives. Another major factor catalysing its demand is the increasing application of epoxy resins (derived from phenol) in composites and adhesives which are used in the production of wind rotor blades and other structural elements. With the global wind energy market experiencing strong growth in recent years, the demand for phenol has also stepped up. According to the report, the global phenol market has grown at a CAGR of around 4% during 2010-2017. The report further provides a comprehensive insight into the industry including its market break-up by region, market breakup by end-uses, value chain analysis, import and export trends, key players and market outlook. The report also gives an insight into the manufacturing process of phenol covering key success and risk factors for manufacturers, manufacturing process flow, the reactions involved, raw materials and their requirements, etc.

The report has segmented the global phenol market on the basis of end-use. Currently, phenol is being used as a chemical intermediate in the production of a number of chemicals such as Bisphenol A (BPA), phenolic resins, caprolactum, alkyl-phenols, aniline and 2,6-xylenol. In 2017, Bisphenol A accounted for majority of the total global phenol consumption followed by phenolic resins, caprolactum and alkyl phenyls. Other applications of phenol are in herbicides, pharmaceuticals, dyes and plastic additives.

The report has also provided the market analysis based on key regions and finds that Asia-Pacific represents the biggest producer as well as consumer of phenol followed by Europe and the United States. Analysing the import data, the report finds that Netherlands is the largest importer of phenol followed by Belgium and Germany. The report has also analysed the key players operating in the global phenol market. At present, Ineos Phenol represents the world’s largest phenol manufacturer.
