Asian and Pacific Benzene Market Forecast 2018-2023
The analytical research projects that the Asian and Pacific production of benzene is likely to grow to around 6.8 million tons in the medium term. Upward dynamics of the overall installed production capacities in the region are also expected. Their annual average utilization rates, on the other hand, are expected to stay at similar levels. In addition, the market is forecast to remain relatively unbalanced in terms of supply and demand, also showing moderately upwards dynamics in the medium term.
One of the leading trends is linked with the value chains increasingly move eastward, due to the economic growth and market opportunities in Asia. Due to the increased general consumption in Asia, the global demand for benzene and aromatics was mainly supported by markets such as China, which is a key driver for export material from rest of the world.
Another trend is connected with the fact that benzene is a petrochemical used as a fuel additive. Because of its high volatility, benzene acts as a good octane booster, which maintains the energy content of gasoline and is widely used in gasoline blends. In recent years, however, there has been a decrease in the demand for fossil fuels, especially in the developed countries.
