Oct 2019. Benzene is a large-volume commodity petrochemical that is primarily produced in oil refineries and steam crackers, or as a by-product of p-xylene production. The primary chemicals produced from benzene are ethylbenzene, cumene, cyclohexane, and nitrobenzene. Ultimately, benzene is used in a wide range of downstream sectors including construction, automobiles, electronics, and appliances, as well as diverse other durables and consumables.
Over the past decade, benzene consumption has shifted from the West (Western Europe, North America) to the East (Northeast Asia, Middle East, Southeast Asia), and China has become an increasingly important influence on the global benzene market. Uncertainties brought about by the escalating trade dispute between the United States and China, as well as economic and security concerns in other regions, have cast a shadow over the global economy and will negatively impact many markets.
