Global Aniline Market Analysis: Plant Capacity, Production, Operating Efficiency, Demand & Supply, End-User Industries, Sales Channel, Regional Demand, Company Share, Foreign Trade, 2015-2032
The global Aniline market stood at nearly 7.5 million tonnes in 2022 and is expected to grow at a steady CAGR of 3.95% during the forecast period until 2032.
Phenylamine, often known as aniline (C6H5NH2), is an organic molecule made up of an amino group and a phenyl group. It is an oily, combustible liquid that is either colourless or slightly yellow in hue. It is produced via catalytic hydrogenation of nitrobenzene and has a high solubility in ether and alcohol as well as a low solubility in water. Aniline is an aromatic amine which is being popularly used as the key feedstock for manufacturing Methylene Diphenyl Diisocyanate (MDI), the key ingredient in polyurethane (PU) foams, which are widely used for insulation in construction, automotive, and plastic industries, the demand for Aniline is likely to witness robust growth in the forecast period.
Growing demand for rigid PU foam in construction and electronics industry and flexible PU foam in furniture and transportation sector is anticipated to propel the growth of the global Aniline market in the forecast period. Rising demand for innovative MDI materials for energy efficient insulating materials in buildings and refrigeration systems would accelerate the market growth in the forecast period. The consumption of aniline/MDI largely follows the patterns of the leading world economies and augurs well with growth in construction/remodeling activity, automotive production, and original equipment manufacturer (OEM). Other important application of Aniline is its use as a chemical intermediate in rubber industry where it is used in the production of vulcanization accelerators, activators, and anti-degradants. Other fields of Aniline application include dyes and pigments, agricultural chemicals, herbicides, dyes, photography and pharmaceuticals. Owing to these factors, the Aniline market is expected to reach 12 million tonnes in 2032.
Regionally, the Asia Pacific region is dominating the Aniline market followed by Europe. In 2022, Asia Pacific held a market share of approximately 55%. The reason for this is the expanding use of methylene diphenyl diisocyanate (MDI), which is made from aniline and used to make a variety of sealants and insulating materials for infrastructure purposes. One of the primary reasons favoring market expansion is the increase in residential and commercial building construction activities due to the expanding population in developing nations such as India, Japan, and China. China is the world's leading producer and consumer of polyurethanes and being the world's largest automotive manufacturing hub, offers a humungous potential to the global Aniline market.
Based on the end-user industry, the global Aniline market is segmented into Methylene diphenyl diisocyanate (MDI), Rubber-processing Chemicals, Dyes & Pigments, and Others. Methylene diphenyl diisocyanate (MDI) manufacturing is the major consumer of the Aniline market and captured more than 74% of the market in 2022. Due to its expansive application, MDI manufacturing is expected to be the fastest-growing Aniline demand segment.
Major players in the production of Global Aniline are Covestro AG, Huntsman Corporation, BASF SE, Wanhua Chemical Group, Sumitomo Mitsui Chemical, Tosoh Corporation, BorsodChem MCHZ, Jilin Connell Chemical Industry Co., Ltd, Inner Mongolia Connell Chemical Industry Co., LTD, Gujarat Narmada Valley Fertilizers & Chemicals Limited, SP Chemicals Co., ltd., Bondalti Chemicals, S.A, Sinopec Nanjing Chemical Industries Co., Ltd., Karun Petrochemical Company, and Others.
