It is also used as solvents in the manufacture of oil cleaners, adhesives, waxes, paints, paint removers, polishes and others. Polyphenylene sulfide (PPS), a semi-crystalline polymer manufactured by chlorobenzene, is widely used in the textile industry for coatings and fabric, due to its high resistance to temperature, thermal shock and chemicals. Chlorobenzene is also used in dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane which is used for producing agrochemicals. The increasing application in various end-use industries like pharmaceutical, textile, agriculture, proteomics research and others is highly driving the Chlorobenzene market.
Amid the Covid-19 pandemic, the chlorobenzene market saw a considerable amount of growth due to the increase in demand from the pharmaceutical industry. Chlorobenzene is used is an active pharmaceutical ingredient used in the manufacture of various medicines. The demand for chlorobenzene however decreased from the other end-use industries such as textile industry, agriculture industry, paints and coating industries and others, due to the economic restrictions around the globe. Although the demand from many key-use industries decreased, the demand from the pharmaceutical industry boosted the sales of chlorobenzene during the year 2020. The chlorobenzene market is also estimated to gradually grow during the year 2021.
