According to Trade Map, import of pesticides in China increased by 14% accounting for 89,771 tons in 2019, subsequently fueling the growth of p-dioxane market.
COVID-19 proved to be a challenging factor for the p-dioxane. The outbreak of coronavirus has postponed deliveries of p-dioxane and other equipment from yards, due to shortages of staff or supplies, as well as travel bans. Industries are shuttered all around the world. P-Dioxanes are extensively used across various industry vertical applications. For instance, in automotive industry it is used for manufacturing of grease and automotive coolant liquids. Whereas, the decrease in purchasing capital of people during this pandemic time has impacted the automotive industry which in turn lowered the demand of p-dioxane and hampered the growth market. According to the China Passenger Car Association (CPCA), the first two-month of year 2020 sales declined by 40 percent or more compared to the same period in 2019. However, pharmaceuticals industry is booming in this pandemic situation which boosts the growth of p-dioxane market.
Geography - Segment Analysis
Asia Pacific is projected to witness the highest CAGR of 7% in the p-dioxane market during the forecast period owing to the rapid industrial expansion and growing population along with changing lifestyle escalated the growth of p-dioxane market in APAC region. Furthermore, the growing textile industry in the developing country like China and India is also contributing to the market growth. As, p-Dioxanes is used as a wetting and dispersing agent in textile processing. According to Indian Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF), Indian textiles industry was estimated at around US$ 108 billion in 2017 and expected to reach US$ 223 billion by 2021, subsequently raising the demand of p-dioxane for textile processing. P-dioxane is also used for extracting vegetable oil. Increasing food demand across the world is escalating the use of p-Dioxanes for oil processing. According to Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), Indonesia and Malaysia dominated the vegetable oil exports in 2018 and expected to continue its dominion. Nearly 70% of Indonesian and more than 80% of Malaysian vegetable oil is exported. Also, in 2018 FAO estimated that Indonesian oil exports will grow at 1.6% p.a., subsequently boosting the p-dioxane market.
Drivers – p-Dioxane Market
- Increasing demand from transportation and construction industries
p- Dioxanes are widely used as a solvent in formulation of paint, dyes, adhesives, and sealants. Surging use of adhesives and sealants for blocking the passage of water and air in buildings are augmenting the demand of p-Dioxanes.
