The report reveals that majority of benzene is processed for the production of ethylbenzene, a precursor to styrene, which is used for producing polystyrene plastics, engineering plastics, and synthetic rubber. These products find application in manufacturing of tyres, paper coatings, footwear, etc. Production of ethylbenzene is anticipated to account for majority of benzene consumption over the forecast period as well. Ethylbenzene, is followed by cumene, cyclohexane and nitrobenzene, in terms of volume consumption of benzene, globally.

"With growing application in automotive, paper coatings, electronic appliances and plastics industry, the demand for benzene is continuously increasing. However, the use of lighter feedstock for steam cracking is gradually resulting in a tightened demand/supply scenario, owing to which global players are either expanding their existing capacities or adding new facilities for production. Global benzene market is anticipated to exhibit promising growth over the next five years on the back of increasing demand worldwide.", said Mr. Karan Chechi, Research Director, with TechSci Research, a research based global management consulting firm.
