Toluene is an important organic solvent widely used as an industrial feedstock, but is also capable of dissolving a number of notable inorganic chemicals such as sulfur, iodine, bromine, phosphorus, and other non-polar covalent substances.

Its major end-products are polyurethanes, which are used to make the foam in furniture, mattresses, car seats, building insulation, coatings for floors and furniture and refrigerators. Polyurethanes are also used in artificial sports tracks, jogging shoes, and in roller blade wheels.

The pharmaceutical and printing ink industries, both of which have been growing at 10% per year in India, are the major consumers of toluene in the domestic market. Paint, rubber and TDI industries are the other major consumers of toluene, with significant share of the domestic toluene demand. The western region is the most important consumer of toluene in India, followed by the northern and the southern region. The southern region has shown significant growth in the last 5 years, making it one of the fastest growing regions for toluene consumption.

Most of the domestic demand for toluene is met through imports and the international market has a direct bearing on domestic prices. In India, toluene is mostly produced by separation of aromatic mixture.

The production of toluene depends significantly on the differential between toluene and naphtha prices. Toluene values generally track naphtha prices and as a result the product prices and supply have are affected by the swing in the prices of is feedstock.
