Benzene

In India, the demand for Benzene is met through abundant domestic production with the remaining amount being exported to the international market. Demand has seen a modest growth of 0.5% from fiscal year 2005-06 to 2016-17.

India's excess domestic production mandates producers and exporters to export Benzene. However, import still exists due to the demand of specific grade Benzene, price fluctuations and strategic trades. Capacity utilization for Benzene in the country is hovering well above 80% since the last decade.

Cyclohexane, ethyl benzene and cumene are the largest end use consumers of Benzene and are expected to achieve a growth rate of more than 3% in the next 5 years. LAB, Aniline and Nitrobenzene are the other major consumers of Benzene in the country and are expected to witness a modest growth in the coming years. The western region of the country is the largest hub, accounting for almost half of the domestic Benzene consumption. Other regions of the country share approximately similar Benzene requirements, which are however, expected to increase in the future. There will be positive growth in the consumption of benzene over the period of 2016 to 2021 but not a spurt rise.

Reliance India Limited, IOCL, BPCL, Haldia Petrochemical Corporation, OPAL and OMPL are the chief Benzene manufacturers in the domestic market.

The global benzene market is expected to surpass 46MMT by 2020-21 on account of continuously increasing demand from various industries using benzene derivatives in their manufacturing processes; global benzene consumption is forecasted to grow at an average annual rate of 3–4% during 2016–21.

The rise of China as the leading market for benzene is a major emerging trend in the Global Benzene market. Shale gas evolution in the US has increased the availability of ethane, which is a light feedstock used for the cracking process. The use of lighter feedstock is hampering the yield of benzene and leading to a tight demand-supply scenario in the global market, due to which the market has become highly competitive.
