The report "Maleic Anhydride Market by Raw Material (n-butane and Benzene), Application (Unsaturated Polyester Resin (UPR), 1,4-butanediol (1,4-BDO), Lubricating Oil Additives, and Copolymers)), and Region - Global Forecast to 2026" The maleic anhydride market is projected to reach USD 3.4 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 4.2% from USD 2.8 billion in 2021. Maleic anhydride is an organic compound produced by the vapor-phase oxidation of n-butane or benzene. It is a colorless solid with an acrid odor. Maleic anhydride acts as a chemical intermediate. It is used to manufacture various end-use products, such as Unsaturated Polyester Resins (UPR), 1,4-BDO, lubricating oil additives, and copolymers. Maleic anhydride can be derived from the raw materials such as n-butane and benzene. UPR is the largest application segment of the maleic anhydride market. Asia Pacific was the largest market for maleic anhydride in 2020, in terms of value. The growth of the market in Asia Pacific is primarily propelled by the growing building & construction and automotive industries. The growth of end-use industries, rapid industrialization, availability of feedstock, and improved living standards of people in Asia Pacific are among the factors driving the maleic anhydride market.
