フェノール (C6H5OH) は芳香族化合物の一種で、化学産業で前駆体や中間体として幅広く活用されています。様々な化学物質 (BPA、フェノール樹脂、カプロラクタム、アルキルフェノール、アニリン、2,6-キシレノールなど) の原料として使われ、更には自動車部品・光学メディア・合板用接着剤・合成繊維・カーペットなどの原材料となっています。現在では中国が最大の生産国・消費国となっています。世界のフェノール市場の2015〜2020年のCAGR (複合年間成長率) は約4%に達する見通しです。
当レポートでは、世界のフェノール市場の構造と動向について分析し、全体的な市場規模の推移・見通しや、地域別・エンドユース産業別の詳細動向、主要国における輸出入状況、主な成功・リスク要因、原材料市場の構造・動向、製造工程の概略とマスバランス (物質収支) などについて調査・考察しております。
Phenol is an aromatic organic compound which is widely used as a precursor or an intermediate in the chemical industry. Represented by the chemical formula C6H5OH, phenol is similar to alcohols as the phenyl group (C6H5) in it is bonded to a hydroxyl group (OH). The stronger hydrogen bonding in phenol enhances its solubility and results in a higher melting and boiling point compared to other hydrocarbons with similar molecular weight. Phenol was first isolated from coal tars in the 1850's and is currently produced by the oxidation of cumene. This process is advantageous over other production processes such as the Dow process as it gives another valuable industrial chemical- acetone.
Phenol is used in the production of a number of chemicals like- bisphenol-A (BPA), phenolic resins, caprolactam, alkylphenols, aniline, 2,6-xylenol, etc. The first three derivatives- bisphenol-A (BPA), phenolic resins and caprolactam currently consume the majority of its total global production. BPA end applications include automotive parts, optical media, glazing/sheeting, etc. Phenolic resins are primarily used as a binder or coating for oriented strand boards (OSB) or for plywood. In addition, they are used for circuit boards as well as molded products. Caprolactam, the third biggest derivative of phenol is used in textiles, carpets, engineered plastics, packaging and industrial filament applications. Another major factor driving the global phenol market is the rising demand for wind turbines with their blades made up of epoxy resins that are derived from phenol.
China is currently both the biggest producer and consumer of phenol and its production capacity has increased exponentially in recent years. The major players in the global phenol industry include: Ineos, Mitsui Chemicals, Cepsa Quimica, Kumho P & B Chemicals, LG Chemicals, Chang Chun PC, etc. Looking forward, we expect the global phenol market to grow at a CAGR of around 4% during 2015-2020.
