The global fragrance market is projected to be valued at around USD 52.4 billion by 2025. Moreover, the high proclivity of the general public for personal grooming, health, and self-care goods has increased the demand for anisole. An isoline is also an effective insect pheromone. All these factors are expected to have a positive impact on the revenue growth of the target anisole market.

The breakout of COVID-19 has had a significant impact on the chemical industry's manufacturing operations and global supply chain. Even after the lockdown is removed, most likely in stages, the manufacturers of anisole will continue to face long-term challenges due to workforce shortages and stifled logistics.

But during the pandemic, sales of pharmaceutical products surged. Hence the demand for anisole increased in this sector as it uses as an intermediate in the manufacturing of several medicines. Also, the sales of cosmetic products through e-commerce platforms have increased at a rapid pace after the spread of COVID 19.

Industry Dynamics

Growth Drivers
The chemical sector is an important part of the economy. Hence governments of developing countries have started taking various initiatives to strengthen this sector. Governments are changing old tax policies and launching new schemes to strengthen the chemical sector. Since 2019, the Indian government has allowed 100% FDI in the chemical industry. This factor is anticipated to augment the revenue growth of the global anisole market during the forecast period.

Increasing disposable income and rapid population growth have resulted in increased demand for cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, beverages, etc., all over the world. An increase in disposable income is allowing people to be more focused on personal care. According to United Nations, the global population is estimated to reach 9.7 Bn by 2020.

In 2016, Americans had approx. 13.6 trillion dollars in disposable income, which increased up to approximately 14.9 trillion dollars in 2019. This is the major factor that is driving the growth of the target market. According to the EIPA (Euromonitor International Personal Appearance Survey), the variety of socially acceptable beauty and personal care (BPC) products for men has widened in the last ten years.

One-third of men spend well over 30 minutes per day grooming, presenting a wide range of potential for BPC makers to offer solutions that cater to the specific demands of men who are concerned about their appearance. Over the projection period, such factors are anticipated to boost the anisole market for cosmetics and personal care products. And this factor, in turn, will boost demand for anisole.

Anisole is used as an intermediary in the production of many derivatives, such as 4-allyl anisole, which is a key element in pesticides used to protect conifers in parks, forests, and leisure areas from insects like bark beetles. As per Eurostat data, the EU-28 had a total land area grown as organic in 2015 of 11.1 million hectares, up from 5 million hectares in 2002. During the last decade, the EU's organic land area grew at an annual rate of roughly 500,000 hectares each year. This trend is anticipated to have a positive impact on the growth of the target market.
