Global Phenol Derivatives Market, By Raw Material (Benzene, Propylene, Toulene), By Derivatives (Bis

Published Date: | Report Code : CH1958613


Phenols are a class of organic compounds containing a hydroxyl group and a benzene ring, the simplest of which is referred to as phenol.

The bisphenol-A segment is expected to dominate the market, backed by its use in polycarbonate and epoxy resin production, of all derivatives. Polycarbonate is used primarily in food & drink packaging such as water & baby bottles, compact disks, impact-resistant security equipment and medical devices, while epoxy resins are used for coating metal goods such as food bottles, bottle tops and water supply pipes.

Phenol derivatives use polycarbonate and epoxy resins to discover multiple applications in electronics & electrical products and cars. Due to the enormous use of epoxy resins in the manufacturing of wind turbine blades, there is an increasing demand from the wind energy sector. Shale oil / tight oil includes more naphtha than conventional oil, thereby increasing shale oil exploration and production operations would further boost the availability of feedstock.

Key Factors Impacting Market Growth:

  • Extraction of Raw Material From Shale Oil/Tight Oil

  • Rising Demand From End-Use Industries

  • Generation of Hazardous Waste During Production of Phenol
