Toluene is an aromatic hydrocarbon, colorless liquid, volatile in nature and inflammable. Its odor replicates the paint and thinner odor. Toluene is benzene derivative, in which CH3 is attached to phenol. Methylbenzene is the IUPAC name of toluene. Toluene is highly reactive to electrophiles as compared to benzene. Toluene endures chlorination in presence of FeCl3, by Cl2 and sulfonation to give para and ortho isomers of chlorotoluene and p-toluenesulfonic acid respectively. Toluene is utilized as a raw material in the production of xylene, dyes, cosmetics like nail paints and remover, benzene, pharmaceuticals, and TNT. Toluene is usually combined with gasoline to enhance octane number.

Toluene has limited applications, but it is widely used in the production of benzene and xylene. Benzene and xylene has widespread demand and is increasing at 5.0% CAGR. Over 60% of toluene is used in the manufacturing of benzene and xylem which drives the global market for toluene. Toluene market is directly proportional to xylene and benzene market. However, toluene market growth is restricted owing to the variable price of crude oils, the introduction of new aromatic products and ill effects on the body. Nevertheless, untapped opportunities and rise in end-user applications is expected to open growth opportunities for the market in the near future.

Benzyl chloride, trinitrotoluene (TNT), benzaldehyde, toluene diisocyanate (TDI), benzoic acid and other are the types of toluene. Benzoic acid followed with benzyl chloride continues to gain traction owing to a wide range of applications and huge demand.
