The global Toluene market has expanded to reach approximately 37 million tonnes in 2022 and is likely to further grow at a healthy CAGR of 5.90% during the forecast period until 2035.
Toluene is a seven-carbon aromatic hydrocarbon that appears colourless. Industrially, Toluene can be produced via two methods. In the first method, it is extracted from the pyrolysis of gasoline, which in turn is produced from Naphtha cracking. In the second method, it is extracted from reformate, which is also produced from heavy Naphtha cracking. Toluene is primarily utilized in the synthesis of various chemical derivatives like Toluene Diisocyanate (TDI), Benzoic Acid, and others. It also serves as a solvent in various industries and as an industrial feedstock. Toluene can be directly used in disinfectants, thinners, paints, foams, cleaning agents, adhesives, fuel additives, etc. It also finds its applications in the transportation sector as an octane booster for gasoline.
The increasing demand for aromatics in the petrochemical industry is driving the market owing to the presence of a benzene ring in their chemical structure. However, with the toxicity of Toluene being much less in comparison to Benzene, it serves as a viable replacement for the latter in some applications. Other applications of toluene such as to produce elastomers, agrochemicals, and dyes, also significantly contribute to the market. As a common chemical intermediate, toluene diisocyanate is used to make polyurethane foams, elastomers, and coatings as well as paints, varnishes, wire enamels, sealants, adhesives, and binders. In the production of nylon polymers, it also functions as a cross-linking agent. The growth in the demand for TDI is anticipated to augment the toluene market expansion. Due to these reasons, the Toluene market is expected to reach 77 million tonnes in 2035.
Based on demand by region the Asia Pacific region is dominating the Toluene market. In 2022, Asia Pacific held a market share of approximately 48 percent. However, Europe stays the second largest consumer of the Toluene market followed by North America. The demand for toluene is majorly driven by rising downstream derivatives' uses in the construction, building, oil & gas, and automotive industries for insulation purposes in developing nations like China, Taiwan, India, Thailand, Japan, and South Korea. Additionally, China leads as being the key producer of Toluene all across the globe.
Based on the end-user industry, the global Toluene market is segregated into Xylene, Toluene Diisocyanate (TDI), Benzene, Paints, Coatings & Solvent, and Others. Among these, Paints, Coatings & Solvent is the leading industry with a market share of approximately 28% in 2022 and is likely to maintain its dominance in the forecast period.
Major players in the production of Global Toluene are Sinopec Group (China National Petroleum & Chemical Corporation), Hengli Petrochemical (Dalian) Refinery Co., Ltd., China National Offshore Oil Corporation (CNOOC Group Limited), Lotte Chemical Corp., GS Caltex, SK Global Corp.
