Global Chlorobenzenes Market: Overview
Chlorobenzene has the chemical formula C6H5Cl. The chlorobenzene is a flammable liquid that has no color and it is mainly used as a solvent in the manufacturing of the other chemicals. The chlorobenzene compound acts as an intermediate in the manufacture and the synthesis of the various other chemicals which includes pesticides. Chlorobenzene is obtained by the benzene chlorination with the help of the catalyst acids such as anhydrous aluminum chloride, ferric chloride, and sulfur dichloride. From this process of chlorination of the benzene 12 different chlorobenzenes can be produced. But due to technology and other reasons the production of the chlorobenzene has decreased to primary three products such as p-dichlorobenzene, monochlorobenzene, and o-dichlorobenzene. The other chlorobenzenes which are not manufactured include m-dichlorobenzene, trichlorobenzenes, tetrachlorobenzenes, and hexachlorobenzene.
Global Chlorobenzenes Market: Segmentation
The global market for the chlorobenzenes is fragmented into its type and application. On the basis of the type, the global market is segregated into p-dichlorobenzene, m-dichlorobenzene, trichlorobenzenes, o-dichlorobenzene, hexachlorobenzene, monochlorobenzene, tetrachlorobenzenes, and others. On the basis of application, the market is categorized into personal care industry, paint and coatings industry, chemical industry, and others.
Global Chlorobenzenes Market: Growth Factors
The major factor that is driving the chlorobenzene market is the increasing demand for the chlorobenzenes in the chemical industry for the production of various chemicals. In the personal care industry, it is highly used in the deodorants thus increasing its demand which anticipates contributing to the market growth. The use of the chlorobenzenes will decline subsequently owing to its harmful effects on the environment. The chlorobenzenes are used as pesticides, herbicides, and solvents and it leads to environmental problems thus reducing its usage. The market for the chlorobenzenes excluding the high-performance polymers are reducing due to the availability of the substitutes.
Global Chlorobenzenes Market: Regional Analysis
Depending on the geographical regions, the global market for the chlorobenzenes is diversified into the Middle East and Africa, Asia Pacific, North America, Eastern Europe, Latin America, and Western Europe. The region that is dominating the chlorobenzene market is Asia Pacific region. The major factor that contributes to this dominance is the emerging nation China is the largest consumer of chlorobenzene. More than half the consumption of the global chlorobenzene market is by China. The market in the Asia Pacific region is developing at a fast pace owing to the presence of the large number of end-use industries in the developing nations such as India and China. The other nation that has a good rate of consumption of the chlorobenzenes is Japan. North America and the Western Europe also consume chlorobenzenes on a wide range for the making of the chemicals.
