Global Benzene Market, By Type (Methyl Chloride, Methylene Chloride, Chloroform, Carbon Tetrachlorid

Published Date: | Report Code : CH1958460


The Benzene Market growth is expected to gain high momentum during the forecast period due to the rapidly increasing demand in coating & paints and automotive industries.

Benzene can be defined as an organic chemical compound which has the chemical formula C6H6 and is composed of six carbon atoms joined in a ring with one hydrogen atom attached to each. It is also classed as a hydrocarbon, as it contains only carbon and hydrogen atoms. It is a natural constituent of crude oil and is one of the elementary petrochemicals. It is readily soluble in organic solvents but feebly soluble in water owing to its non-polar nature.

Segment Analysis

The global benzene market is segmented on the basis of type.

On the basis of type, it is segmented into chlorobenzene, toluene, nitrobenzene, cyclohexane, cumene, phenol, ethyl benzene, alkyl benzene, and aniline.
