Market Research Reports, Inc. has announced the addition of “Global Benzene Market 2015-2019” research report to their website


Lewes, DE -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/26/2015 -- Report forecast the Global Benzene market to grow at a CAGR of 4.68 percent over the period 2014-2019.

Benzene is a hydrocarbon that contains six carbon and six hydrogen atoms. Benzene is one of the constituents of crude oil. Its chemical structure is cyclic with atoms joined by continuous pi-bonds. It is a colourless, highly flammable liquid with a sweet odour. It is primarily used as a precursor to heavy chemicals such as ethylbenzene and cumene. It is an important additive to gasoline as its high octane number improves the anti-knocking characteristics of gasoline. Carcinogenity of benzene is the primary reason for it not being used for non-industrial purposes.

Several other chemicals are also manufactured using benzene, including:

- Cyclohexane
- Nitrobenzene
- Maleic Anhydride
- Naphthalene
- Chlorobenzene

According to the report, increased demand for paraxylene, ethylene, and gasoline is the major factor contributing to the growth of the market. Benzene is a by-product of refinery and steam cracker operations for the production of ethylene and paraxylene. Hence, the supply of benzene is directly dependent on the demand for paraxylene, ethylene, and gasoline.

Further, the report states that volatility in crude oil prices affects the profitability of benzene producers as benzene prices are directly related to international crude oil prices.
