Cumene Market is anticipated to reach US$ 42.7 Billion in 2032

Cumene Market

According to a recent Future Market Insights study, the cumene market is expected to grow at a staggering 5.4% CAGR between 2022 and 2032. The market is expected to grow to $42.7 billion in 2032, up from $25.1 billion in 2022. The market was valued at $23.5 billion in 2021 and is expected to grow at a 6.8% year on year rate. The global market’s overall absolute dollar growth is US$ 17.6 billion.

The increasing use of cumenes for various applications is expected to drive market growth over the forecast period. The rise in demand for phenolic resins and bisphenol-A, as well as the increased consumption of acetone and its derivatives, are expected to drive the growth of the cumene market during the forecast period. Furthermore, the increased use of cumene in adhesives and sealant chemicals, as well as the consumer preference for high octane production, are propelling the cumene market forward.

Product innovations, such as the development of food-grade cumene for polycarbonate plastic-based containers and bottles, are expected to provide market participants with profitable opportunities during the forecast period. Cumene is widely used in the production of phenol, which is one of its most important applications. Cumene hydroperoxide is formed by the liquid-phase oxidation of cumene with molecular oxygen, which is then decomposed into phenol and acetone using a catalyst. Purified cumene is required for the oxidation process. Sulphuric acid is used as a catalyst to decompose cumene hydroperoxide into phenol and acetone.
