Report ID: GMI3980

Summary Methodology

Xylenols Market size is likely to witness significant growth during the forecast time period pertaining to its increasing applications in various end use industries such as healthcare, automotive & aerospace and substantial growth in chemical industry. These products are widely used in the manufacturing of insecticides, disinfectants and phenolic resins owing to their unique reactivity properties which is likely to accelerate the xylenols market growth.

Xylenols are naturally occurring phenolic compounds which are present in small amounts in tobacco, coal tar and other volatile materials. These compounds are widely used in the manufacture of solvents, disinfectants, rubber chemicals and additives for lubricants as they are soluble in most organic solvents and caustic soda solutions. Xylenols have a low vapor pressure, exhibit an antiseptic odor and are stable under recommended storage conditions which makes them ideal disinfectant agents for healthcare and other hard surface applications.

Increasing research and development activities and growing technological advancements have enhanced the usage of xylenol compounds in agro chemicals industry. These compounds are highly versatile and are key raw materials in the manufacture of insecticides and herbicides. Global market value of insecticides amounted over USD 14 billion in 2017 which shows significant opportunities for market growth. Xylenols helps in treating various bacterial infections such as crown gall, olive knot and controls the genetic disorder in vine crops & ornamental trees such as almond, cherry, apple and walnuts. Growing demand for food products has urged farmers to produce high quality crops which is likely to fuel the xylenols market demand.

Chlorinated xylenols are extensively used in the manufacture of disinfectants owing to its high effectiveness and antiseptic properties. These compounds are used in treating skin disinfection, cleaning surgical instruments and form a crucial part of infection control practices by enhancing the microbial resistance and reducing the penetration of gram-positive bacteria by disrupting the cell wall and stopping the function of enzymes. Sales value of chemical disinfectants in UK amounted over at USD 68.5 million in 2017 which shall stimulate healthy market growth. Rising expenditure on healthcare along with increasing incidences of hospital acquired infectious diseases such as surgical site infection and urinary tract infection is likely to drive the xylenols market growth.

Xylenols are used in the production of antioxidants for gasoline and jet fuel additives owing to their superior solvency properties and ability to control gum and sediment formation. These products act as antioxidant and UV stabilizer intermediate for various fuel additives and help in improving the efficiency and productivity in a cost-effective way. Jet fuel consumption in the U.S. amounted over 17.5 billion gallons in 2018 which is likely to trigger the product demand. Stringent environmental regulations towards greenhouse gas emissions has increased the demand for clean & efficient fuel additives which is likely to boost the xylenols industry demand.

North America xylenols market demand led by the U.S and Canada shall exhibit significant growth in the forecasted time period pertaining to the increasing healthcare facilities in the region which has fueled the demand for disinfectant agents. Increasing adoption of surgical treatments in clinic have enhanced the use of medical instruments which in turn has boosted the potential risk of infectious diseases. Per capita healthcare expenditure in the U.S. valued over at USD 11 thousand in 2018.  Rising disposable income and growing government initiatives to promote disinfection in hospitals and public areas shall induce regional xylenols market growth.

Europe driven by France, Italy, UK, and Germany xylenols market size may witness significant growth during projected time period owing to the increasing demand for high quality and stable fuel additives in the region. Xylenols in fuel additives acts as an antioxidant and improves storage stability, prevents gum formation and reduces toxic emissions. Revenue from aerospace and aviation industry in Germany amounted over at USD 45 billion in 2017. These additives eliminate free radical chain reactions involved in hydrocarbon oxidation and extend the induction period which shall drive the regional growth. Also, Germany is considered to a global aerospace hub, and also a home for various leading players from across defense and civil aviation market segments which is further expected to enhance product demand.

Asia Pacific xylenols market demand led by China, India and Japan may witness substantial growth pertaining to increasing agricultural practices in the region which has increased the usage of herbicides and pesticides. Chemical pesticides production in China amounted over 178,000 metric tons in 2018 which shows huge opportunities for the market to grow. Increasing government focus to agricultural facilities has enabled farmers to use high quality bacteria and pest resistant products which shall stimulate xylenols market regional growth.

Global xylenols market share is consolidated as market consist of limited players. Companies like SABIC, Nanjing Datang Chemical, Sigma Aldrich and Qingdao Welltech Chemical are major players in this market.
