Ethyl Benzene is expected to dominate the benzene derivative market, owing to its usage in the production of styrene. The rising demand from construction and packaging industry for styrene derivatives is expected to propel the market for benzene.
Rapid Demand of Styrene Polymers for Various End-user Industries
Styrene polymers are used in various applications, like production of synthetic rubbers and expanded polystyrene. Styrene polymers are used in various every day products, like televisions, IT equipment, disposable medical products, like test kits, consumer electronics, like portable speakers, cassette tape housing, etc. Polystyrene in expanded form is used widely in packaging and construction. The growth of these end-user industries, especially in emerging markets, like China, India, and Russia is propelling the growth of styrene, which in turn is responsible for growth in usage of Benzene, as it is one of the key raw materials for styrene production.
Asia Pacific a Potential Market
Asia-pacific currently leads the consumption of benzene with ~50% share of global consumption. This region is also expected to be the fastest growing market during the forecasted period, with increasing markets for end-users like electronics and home appliances, packaging and construction in China, India, and ASEAN countries. United States and Western Europe are approaching a stage of maturity for this market.
