By 2032, Cumene Market is Expected Growth $29.45 billion, CAGR 4.4%

Cumene Market Size Worth $29.45 Billion By 2032 | CAGR: 4.4%

The global cumene market size is expected to reach USD 29.45 billion by 2032, according to a new study by Polaris Market Research. The report “Cumene Market Share, Size, Trends, Industry Analysis Report, By Type (Zeolite, Solid Phosphoric Acid, and Aluminum Chloride); By Application; By Region; Segment Forecast, 2023 - 2032” gives a detailed insight into current market dynamics and provides analysis on future market growth.

The constant surge in the use of cumene as a raw material in the production of acetone and phenol that are widely utilized in numerous end-use industries and growing need for construction materials, coatings, sealants, and adhesives, as a result of rapid rate of urbanization and industrialization worldwide, are primary factors influencing the growth of the market. In addition, researchers and companies are continuously working on exploring more environmentally friendly production methods for cumene that includes using catalysts that are comparatively less harmful to the environment, which in turn, generating huge growth opportunities for the market.

  • For instance, in April 2023, INEOS Phenol, announced that they have completed the acquisition of Mitsui Phenols from the Mitsui Chemicals for total consideration of USD 330 million. This addition will expand company’s existing asset portfolio and expertise and will create new integration opportunities with its manufacturing sites.

As, phenol is also emerging as a major component in phenolic additives that are widely used in wood products like plywood and oriented strand board and also as a extensively valuable intermediate in the manufacturing of agricultural chemicals, medicines, plasticizers, detergents, and dyes, thereby, the demand and need for cumene is drastically rising over the years.
