Benzene Market:

Market Abstract:

Benzene is colorless and flammable liquid with a sweet and gasoline-like odor. It undergoes substitution reactions. Substitution is a reaction in which an atom or group of atoms replaces a hydrogen atom in an organic molecule. The halogens, nitric acid, sulfuric acid, and alkyl halides all react with benzene to form substituted derivatives. Benzene is a large-volume commodity petrochemical that is primarily produced in oil refineries and steam crackers, or as a by-product of p-xylene production. Thus, its supply is not driven by the global benzene demand but rather by demand for other products such as gasoline, ethylene, P-xylene.

Benzene is used as a solvent in many commercial, industrial, and research operations. Benzene is used to produce several intermediates from its derivatives, including polystyrene- made from ethylbenzene, phenol-made from cumene, nylon-made from cyclohexane, and polyurethane-made from nitrobenzene derivatives. Alkyl benzene derivative is used to produce surfactants for manufacturing detergents. Cyclohexane derivative is an important raw material to produce nylon, which is used to manufacture textiles. Nitrobenzene derivative is used to manufacture polyurethane foams for the furniture industry.
