Aniline Market Overview
The Aniline Market size is projected
to reach US$20.7 billion by 2027, after growing at a CAGR of 7.6% during the
forecast period 2022-2027. Aniline is an organic
chemical compound that comprises of a phenyl group attached to an amino group, which is also known as aminobenzene or phenylamine. It has an
unpleasant odor with an oily and colorless appearance. The increasing
requirement for aniline in the electrical & electronics industry for the
manufacturing of electronic consumer devices is anticipated to upsurge the
growth of the aniline industry during the forecast period. The electrical &
electronics industry is growing, for instance, according to Invest India,
domestic production of electronics hardware reached US$76 billion in 2019-2020,
with a CAGR of around 23% and production-linked incentives of INR 40,951 crores
(US$5544 million), funded over a period of 5 years. Moreover, the growing
automotive industry is utilizing aniline for automotive interiors, which is
also driving the aniline market growth. The global economic downturn caused by
the COVID-19 pandemic resulted in a huge drop in building & construction,
electronic devices, automotive and other end-use industries all across the
world, which had a significant impact on the growth of the aniline market size.

Aniline Market Segment Analysis – By Application
The methyl diphenyl diisocyanate
(MDI) segment held the largest Aniline Market share
in 2021 and is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 7.4% during the forecast period
2022-2027. Methyl diphenyl diisocyanate (MDI) is mainly applied in the manufacturing
of polyurethanes for various applications, such as the manufacture of rigid
polyurethane foams for home furnishing and insulation. Insulation manufactured
with methyl diphenyl diisocyanate (MDI) helps to conserve energy. Methyl
diphenyl diisocyanate is utilized in manufacturing product items such as insulation,
adhesives, sealants, furnishing and automotive interiors. Additionally, it is
utilized in elastomers (CASE) found in items such as glues, paints and
weather-resistant materials, footwear, leisure and sports products. Moreover, methyl
diphenyl diisocyanate (MDI) is also applied as a binder for wood and to manufacture
mold cores for the foundry industry. Thus, all these exhibit characteristics of methyl diphenyl diisocyanate
(MDI) make it a preferred choice over
the other aniline applications that are driving its segmental growth.
Aniline Market Segment Analysis – By End-use Industry
building & construction industry held the largest Aniline Market share in
2021 and is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 7.8% during the forecast period
2022-2027. In the building & construction industry, aniline is an important
chemical utilized in manufacturing rigid polyurethanes that are applied as an
insulating material. The building and
construction industry is growing, for instance, according to the U.S Department
of Commerce, the privately owned housing units authorized by building permits
in March 2022 were around 1,873,000 which is 0.4% above February 2022 of
1,865,000 units and is 6.7% above March 2021 of around 1,755,000 units.
Moreover, according to Statistics of Japan, the number of construction contract
orders went from 6,00,46,960 units in 2020 to 6,36,10,223 in 2021 and has
witnessed a growth in 2021 (Jan-July) compared to 2020(Jan-July). Thus, the
growing building and construction industry will require more aniline for
coatings and insulations due to their exhibit characteristics, which will drive
the demand for the aniline market growth during the forecast period.
Aniline Market Segment Analysis – By Geography
Asia-Pacific region dominated the Aniline Market share by 42.2% in the year 2021, due to the increasing requirement for aniline in developing countries such as China, Japan, India and South Korea. China is expected to continue its dominance in the aniline market, also known as aminobenzene or phenylamine, during the forecast period, due to the growing building & construction industry in the country. For instance, according to International Trade Administration (ITA), China is the world’s largest construction market and is forecasted to grow at an annual average growth of 8.6% between 2022 and 2030. Moreover, in Singapore, according to the Australian Government, the building and construction sector remains healthy in Singapore, with strong government spending on public infrastructure, of about S$2 billion (US$1.43 billion) in contracts being awarded each month. Such increasing building & construction activities in the APAC countries are anticipated to increase the demand for aniline applications in the forecasted period and are proving to be a market booster for the aniline market size in this region.
