Cyclohexylbenzene, also called phenylcyclohexane, is a clear, colorless oily liquid that dissolves in compounds such as acetone, alcohol, benzene, hexane, xylene, carbon tetrachloride, and castor oil. The molecular formula is C12H16. Cyclohexylbenzene is insoluble in glycerol and water, so it is widely used in the manufacture of lithium batteries, liquid crystal displays and plastics. In addition, it can be used as a penetrant used in the adhesive, plastic, ink, dye, and paint industries. The commercial application of cyclohexylbenzene as a phenol precursor or intermediate to produce phenolic resins is expected to boost the overall cyclohexylbenzene industry expansion.

Increasing demand for the development of many new technologies such as smartphones, laptops, smart gadgets, personalized healthcare devices, and cyclohexylbenzene-based artificial intelligence and speech recognition technologies is expected to support the growth of the cyclohexylbenzene market.

The increasing use of cyclohexylbenzene in the production of lithium-ion battery electrolytes and LCD material intermediates will drive the market for electronic grade segment.

Cyclohexylbenzene market for electronic grade segment was valued at over USD 245 million in 2020 and is anticipated to grow at over 4.5% CAGR up to 2027. Cyclohexylbenzene is a major raw material for producing LCD material intermediate 4-ethyl cyclohexyl benzoic acid. LCD electronics are used as an anti-overcharge additive for lithium-ion battery electrolyte to improve battery safety. Lithium iron phosphate, lithium cobalt oxide, and manganese oxide batteries are few of the prominent lithium-ion battery chemistries that have witnessed significant adoption rates across a wide range of applications. Introduction of favorable policies to promote electric vehicles, increasing economies of scale and overcapacity in component manufacturing has significantly brought down the per kWh cost of batteries which will augment the lithium-ion battery demand.
