Cumene Market: Overview

Cumene is a volatile, flammable, high boiling, and an organic compound with gasoline-like odor. It naturally occurs in coal and raw oil and is blending in gasoline. Commercially, Friedel-Crafts alkylation is used for the manufacturing of cumene.

The global cumene market is majorly driven by its use as a chemical intermediate to produce phenol and acetone. The phenol and its derivatives produced from cumene are used in various applications such as electrical & electronics, automotive, paints & coatings, cosmetics, and others. The acetone is used as a solvent for plastics & synthetic fibers, a volatile component in various paints & varnishes, the excipient in pharmaceuticals, nail polish remover, and others.  The various technology to manufacture cumene includes zeolite catalyst based, solid phosphoric acid, and aluminum chloride. Among these, the cumene production with the zeolite as a catalyst is the leading segment due to its regenerative nature which can be used for several cycles. Further, the use of zeolite reduces the disposable water problems associated with solid phosphoric acid, and aluminum chloride. Also, these processes have disadvantages such as environmental hazard, high corrosion, and catalyst regeneration. Moreover, the use of cumene as a component of high fuel octane is further driving the market growth due to its application in automotive and transportation sector.
