The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has led to disturbance in the supply chain due to the global lockdown in several countries. Also, the spread of coronavirus caused a fall in demand for chemical intermediates due to uncertainty in the global economy and capital markets. Cyclohexylbenzene is a crucial intermediate in the production of phenols, which is widely used in multiple industries such as construction and automotive. Therefore, the number of major chemicals-producing & consuming countries observed significant variation in demand from end-use industries such as electronics and automotive due to the pandemic.

The stringent guidelines laid down by governing bodies of different regions on the manufacturing and use of cyclohexylbenzene are likely to restrain the growth of the cyclohexylbenzene market to some extent during the forecast period. For instance, cyclohexylbenzene is included in the list of potential marine pollutants in Appendix B to § 172.101 of List of marine pollutants.

Additionally, all the companies manufacturing cyclohexylbenzene need to follow the guidelines mentioned in the OSHA 1910.1200. As it is also included in the TSCA inventory list which contains all chemical substances manufactured, processed, or imported in the U.S. Hence, these strict guidelines to be followed by the manufacturers to produce product may pose a challenge for manufacturers and likely to decline the growth of cyclohexylbenzene market during the forecast period. However, manufacturers are following all guidelines to maintain their sustainability and reduce the environmental effects of the company.
