Beta Napthol Market Overview by Key Factors, Scope, Drivers 2023

Beta napthol, which is also commonly known, as 2-napthol is a colorless, fluorescent, crystalline solid compound. Beta napthol is soluble in a range of solvents including, diethyl ether, chloroform, benzene, short alcohols and acetone. However, it is scarcely soluble in water. Chemical properties of beta napthol are comparable to phenol, and it also extrudes a mildly phenolic odor. Beta napthol has a lot of industrial applications, where manufacturing of dyes and pigments are of foremost importance. Beta napthol is also used to manufacture fragrances and as an intermediate chemical for the production of compounds such as 2-hydroxynaphthalene-3-carbonic acid, 2-phenylnaphthylamine and 2-naphthylamine. Beta napthol is also widely used to manufacture 1,1’- binapthol (binol), which is extensively used in asymmetric synthesis of reductions, epoxidations and rearrangements.

Beta napthol is produced in high volume and the market has exhibited steady growth over the years owing to the rise in demand from end use industries. The main application of beta napthol is in the manufacturing of azo dyes, pigments, tanning agents, antiseptics, antioxidants and fluorescent whiteners. The lion’s share of the demand for beta napthol is derived from pigment and dye manufacturing industries where it is used as an intermediate chemical. Azo dyes are extensively used in textile dyeing. The pigments manufactured from beta napthol find high demand from the pharmaceutical manufacturing application. High demand growth from the end use industries augments the market for beta napthol on a global level. Beta napthols application as a precursor chemical for the manufacturing of binol, is another important driver for the market. Binols and its derivatives are one of the most widely used classes of ligands in molecular rearrangements, asymmetric synthesis and epoxidations. Demand for beta napthol from this application constitute considerable market share.
