Apr 2020. Cumene is an oily, colorless, flammable liquid with a sharp gasoline-like odor, classified as an aromatic hydrocarbon. It is used primarily as a raw material in the synthesis of other organic compounds, such as phenol, acetone, bisphenol A (BPA), phenolic resins, and methyl methacrylate. However, the manufacture of phenol and acetone production is where cumene is utilized the most. Phenol and acetone production consumes approximately 98% of all cumene globally; therefore, cumene demand is closely tied to the phenol and acetone markets. Many cumene facilities are integrated with downstream production units, such as phenol/acetone, BPA, and polycarbonate resins, while others are integrated upstream to a refinery for feedstocks. Most of the cumene is contracted and the merchant spot market for cumene is small. Although cumene is a liquid and is easily shipped, it is traded mostly within the regions; there is very little international trade.
