Diphenyl Sulfone Market Deep Research Study with Forecast by 2025

The diphenyl sulfone market is driven by its demand in polymer processing applications, pharmaceutical applications, and paper and pulp applications.


Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/14/2017 -- Diphenyl Sulfone Market: General Outline

Diphenyl sulfone is a twelve carbon organic compound of sulfur with two benzene rings. The chemical is available as a white solid soluble in most organic solvents, and is insoluble in water. Diphenyl sulfone is manufactured commercially by a sulfonation of benzene, through a reaction between sulfuric acid and oleum. Diphenyl sulfone is also produced through a reaction between benzene and benzenesulfonyl chloride. Typically, these processes include the formation of an intermediate, benzenesulfonic acid.

Diphenyl sulfone is a toxic inorganic chemical, and due to its sulfur content, it may cause irritation and/or burns to skin and eyes, and can be fatal if inhaled. Diphenyl sulfone is also considered hazardous, as it releases toxic and irritating sulfur dioxide gas, when burned. The chemical is required to be disposed of properly, as it is may cause harm the aquatic ecosystem.

Diphenyl Sulfone Market: Application Insights

Diphenyl sulfone is primarily used in the chemical industry as a high temperature organic solvent. Diphenyl sulfone is used in processing of rigid thermoset polymers such as PEEK, as these polymers dissolve only in hot organic solvents. Diphenyl sulfone is also used as an intermediate raw material for the production of various phenyl chemicals such as dichloride diphenyl sulfone and bisphenol S among others.

Diphenyl sulfone is also used in paper manufacture and pharmaceutical applications. The diphenyl sulfone market is driven by its demand in polymer processing applications, pharmaceutical applications, and paper and pulp applications. However, the rising awareness about the harmful effects of sulfur dioxide gas, and its hazardous nature, might hamper the market growth over the forecast period. New polymer applications are expected to bring prospective opportunities for future market growth of diphenyl sulfone as an intermediate raw material for the manufacturing of chemicals.

Another use of diphenyl sulfone is for deriving a wide variety of sulfone monomers. These monomers are used to develop high performance sulfone polymers that are categorized by their high temperature sustenance, and clear transparency. These derived sulfone polymers are employed as replacements or substitutes for metallic materials and glass, and can find its application in the medical industry, aerospace industry, consumer products manufacture, and automotive industry.
