The global nitrobenzene market is expected to grow 1.4x, at a moderate 3.6% CAGR, during the assessment period 2020 – 2030. The global nitrobenzene market has been hit hard owing to a number of factors during the covid-19 pandemic. Disruptions in end use verticals has reduced global demand. In addition, suspension of factory activities has impacted productivity. In addition, reluctance by investors, supply chain disruptions, and workforce shortages has also hurt market prospects in the short term.

According to the study released by Fact.MR, nitrobenzene manufacturers have to focus on evaluating budgets, cash flow, and supply chains during this low-revenue period. Temporary closure of facilities could threaten the survival of small-scale businesses in the industry.

“The nitrobenzene market is gaining opportunities owing to strong demand for nitrobenzene, which will replace chemicals that emit volatile organic compounds, meeting the needs of sustainability goals. Rapid developments in the dyes, pharmaceuticals, pesticide, and chemical industries will account for substantial market growth through the end of the pandemic,” says the FACT.MR study.

COVID-19 Impact on Nitrobenzene Market

Prior to the pandemic, the nitrobenzene market had been slammed by the U.S. – China trade war. With the pandemic spreading across the globe, the Chinese industry has been among the worst effected by the outbreak. Currently concerns over a second wave of coronavirus cases, are hampering developments in the nitrobenzene industry. International restrictions on exports and imports also affect the global market. Poor demand arising from a downturn in construction and automotive industrial activity will restrict the market. The recovery of the market post-pandemic will go well into 2021 as the automotive industry is expected to gain demand gradually in the months ahead.
