Chlorobenzene is an aromatic organic compound with the chemical formula C?H?Cl. It is colorless, flammable liquid and acts as a common solvent for use as an intermediate in the manufacture of other chemicals. These compounds are primarily used as an intermediary in the manufacture and synthesis of pesticides and various other chemicals. Chlorobenzene came into existence in 1851 and at present is produced by benzene chlorination in the existence of catalyst, acids such as sulfur dichloride, ferric chloride and anhydrous aluminium chloride. This chlorination process of benzene can ideally produce 12 different chlorobenzenes, however, world events and technology has decreased the chlorobenzene to production of three primary products such as monochlorobenzene, p-dichlorobenzene and o-dichlorobenzene. Other chlorobenzenes that are not produced on a large scale include m-dichlorobenzene, tetrachlorobenzenes, trichlorobenzenes and hexachlorobenzene. Approximately 50% of total production of chlorobenzene is represented by monochlorobenzene that are used for production of nitrochlorobenzene. These nitrochlorobenzenes are used to manufacture pigment intermediates, dye, pesticides, rubber processing chemicals, organic intermediates and pharmaceuticals among others. O-dichlorobenzene are used for treatment of garbage and p-dichlorobenzene covers the largest market for moth control and deodorant blocks and also in production of high performance polymers.Chlorobenzenes are widely used in manufacture of various pesticides, insecticides and chemicals. In addition, they are used as deodorizers, degreasers, fumigants and herbicides among others.
Chlorobenzenes Market: Drivers and restraints
The key driving factors of chlorobenzenes market are the growing demand for chlorobenzene from the chemical industry for manufacture of various chemicals. In addition, owing to its use as deodorant, huge demand from the personal care industry is also anticipated to boost the demand for chlorobenzenes in the market.
However, the markets for chlorobenzenes, except for high performance polymers are declining owing to substitution of alternative chemistry in manufacture of products such as phenol and moth control agents. The demand for chlorobenzene in the market is expected to slow down owing to the various factors that volatilize the environment. The use of chlorobenzene as herbicides, pesticides and solvents, with environmental problems related to them has declined the market for chlorobenzene.
