Global Chlorobenzene Market 2017-2021
Chlorobenzene is a colorless aromatic organic compound with high flammability and is used as a solvent. Chlorobenzene is used extensively as a chemical intermediate in the production of various products such as dyes, pharmaceuticals, pesticides, and fertilizers. The production of chlorobenzene involves the chlorination of benzene with Lewis acid catalysts, such as ferric chloride and anhydrous chloride. The chlorination of benzene can produce almost 12 different types of chlorobenzene; however, the three significant products used extensively in various applications are monochlorobenzene, ortho-dichlorobenzene (o-dichlorobenzene), and para-dichlorobenzene (p-dichlorobenzene).
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global chlorobenzene market to grow at a CAGR of 5.90% during the period 2017-2021.

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Chlorobenzene Market 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global chlorobenzene market: Anhui Bayi Chemical Industry, JIANGSU YANGNONG CHEMICAL, Jiaxing Zhonghua Chemical, KUREHA, and SEYA Industries
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Akshar Enterprises, Chemieorganics Chemical India, Chirag Organics, Hindustan Organic Chemicals, Kutch Chemicals Industries, LANXESS, Panoli Intermediates India, PCC, RIDHDHI SIDHDHI CHEMICALS, and SP CHEMICALS HOLDINGS.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Rising consumption of p-dichlorobenzene. P-dichlorobenzene is a derivative of chlorobenzene, which is used extensively in the production of PPS, an organic crystalline polymer with its benzene rings linked with sulfide. PPS is an engineering polymer that exhibits high thermal resistance, chemical resistance, and fire resistance. PPS finds applications in automotive, industrial manufacturing, coatings, and electrical and electronics.”
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Increased demand for chlorobenzene from the chemical industry. The global chlorobenzene market is witnessing growth because of its large number of applications in the chemical industry. Chlorobenzene and its by-products are used as intermediates in the production of various chemicals and chemical-based products, such as dyes, pigments, herbicides, and pesticides. In addition, chlorobenzene is used to synthesize 4-nitrochlorobenzene that acts as an intermediate in the production of 4-chloroaniline and 4-nitrodiphenylamine; the latter is used as an antioxidant in rubber products.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Hazardous effects of chlorobenzene on human health. Chlorobenzene is used as an intermediate and solvent in manufacturing and synthesizing various chemicals, pesticides, and fertilizers. p-dichlorobenzene, a derivative of chlorobenzene, is used in the production of moth control balls. p-dichlorobenzene mothballs are solid crystal balls used as insecticides to protect clothes from pests like moth larvae. Mothballs undergo sublimation and release toxic gases that have a pungent odor in the air causing damage to the kidneys and liver. The inhalation of the gas directly affects the red blood cells (RBC), causing hemolytic anemia, and RBC stops functioning as an oxygen carrier, results in the damage of organs.
