The Covid-19 outbreak has impacted the price, production, and demand of 2-phenylethanol for a certain period. The global pandemic of COVID-19 majorly hit different raw material markets. Likewise, the pandemic also affected the demand and supply for the 2-phenylethanol market, owing to decreased demand from application industries, the shutdown of manufacturing facilities, disruptions in raw material supply chains, restrictions on imports from China, decreased production capacity of 2-phenylethanol manufacturers which has further impacted 2-phenylethanol prices.

Development of alternate products, with similar or better functional values, is a major factor restraining the 2-phenylethanol market expansion. For instance, salicylic acid, a beta hydroxyl acid, is a key substitute to 2-phenylethanol in skin care product formulations. Salicylic acid is more effective in terms of skin exfoliation compared to 2-phenylethanol. Linalool is another alternative for 2-phenylethanol historically used in rose-based products. Therefore, this availability of multiple substitutes in the industry could hinder the market demand over the upcoming years.
