Cumene finds most of its applications in production of phenol followed by acetone and other industrial chemicals. It has various end-use industries such as polycarbonate, bisphenol-A, and phenolic resins considering that phenol has major share of applications. The Global Cumene market was valued at $15,466.1 million in 2012, and is projected to reach $24,129.02 million by 2018, at a CAGR of 6.7%. One of the major driving factors for Global Cumene Market is growing demand for phenol in various industries such as plastics, composites, laminates and other industries. Acetone which is another product of cumene is also expected to show demand over coming few years which can drive the market for cumene as a production raw material.
Cumene is a clear colourless liquid with an aromatic odour and a constituent of crude oil and finished fuels. It has a molecular weight of 120.2 (g/mol), its boiling point is 152-153°C and melting point is -96°C. Cumene is used in a variety of petroleum products and also used as a thinner for lacquers, paints, enamels and as a component of high octane fuels. Additionally, it is also used in the production of acetone, acetophenone, phenol, and methylstyrene. Another main driver for cumene global demand is the increasing production of bisphenol A, a product of phenol and acetone. Polycarbonate and epoxy resins are the main drivers of bisphenol A demand. Ultimately, it is the strong growth in polycarbonate that is driving demand through bisphenol A to phenol/acetone and hence to cumene.
It is estimated that about 12,400.4 KT of cumene was consumed globally in 2012, and this demand is expected to reach 16,997.9 KT by 2018, at an estimated CAGR of about 5.1%, for the given period. However, the overall market value of cumene was estimated at about $15,466.1 million in 2012, which is projected to reach a CAGR of about 6.7%, during the forecast period.
