Growth in Demand for Phenol/Acetone And Their Derivatives

Over the past few years, the acetone and phenol markets have seen prompt increase in production capacity, globally. The key derivatives of acetone and phenol are polycarbonate, epoxy resins, phenolic resins, methyl methacrylate and bisphenol-A (BPA). Demand for acetone and phenol is on surge at a significant rate as compared to supply, which offers great potential for new manufacturers to set up their facilities. The by-product produced from manufacturing process of phenol is acetone; as a result, resilient demand for phenol has resulted in its oversupply. Furthermore, surge in growth of electronics industry, specifically in China and India, drives the demand for bisphenol-A (BPA), which in turn fuels the global cumene market growth at a noteworthy pace. Additionally, since acetones and phenol are vital raw materials for manufacturing of pesticides and herbicides to yield improvement and crop protection, the demand for cumene is estimated to observe a rapid surge throughout the forecast period.
