Europe Cyclohexanone Market Segment Analysis – By Application
The nylon intermediates segment held the largest Europe Cyclohexanone Market share in 2021 and is forecasted to grow at a CAGR of 3.6% during the forecast period 2022-2027. The cyclohexanone consists of a six-carbon cyclic molecule with a ketone functional group. It has various key properties, including a molecular mass of 98.14 g/mol, a boiling point of 312.1 ° F / 155.6 at 760 mm Hg, a melting point of 3 ° F / -16.1 ° C, a vapor pressure of 101.7 ° F at 10 mm Hg and other properties that contribute to the intermediates' base. Thus, owing to these properties, cyclohexanone is utilized alone or in a mixture in the production of nylon intermediates such as adipic acid and caprolactam. For instance, according to the Fibrant, a leading manufacturer of cyclohexanone, nylon intermediates such as adipic acid and caprolactam have a dominant cyclohexanone market share in Europe. Hence, the increasing use of cyclohexanone in the production of nylon intermediates is propelling the European cyclohexanone market forward.
Europe Cyclohexanone Market Segment Analysis – By End-Use Industry
The textile segment held the largest Europe Cyclohexanone Market share in 2021 and is forecasted to grow at a CAGR of 4.7% during the forecast period 2022-2027. Cyclohexanone is employed in the textile industry to ensure superior fabric durability. The advancement of textile manufacturing technology, recent investment in the new facility developments and others are the crucial determinants driving the textile industry growth in Europe. For instance, according to the European Apparel and Textile Confederation (EURATEX), in the year 2019, the textile industry of the European Union was valued at €162 billion (US$181.35 billion), an increase of 2.7% over 2018. Thus, the growth of the textile industry in Europe is fueling the demand for nylon. As a result, the demand for cyclohexanone is surging, which in turn, is driving the Europe Cyclohexanone Market growth.
Europe Cyclohexanone Market Segment Analysis – By Geography
Italy is the dominating country as it held the largest Europe Cyclohexanone Market share in 2021 up to 30%. Italy's economic growth is being fueled by the expansion of some of its major industrial sectors, including textile, automotive, construction and others. The surge in consumer spending on textile products, increasing government initiatives in the textile industry and other factors are accelerating the growth of the textile industry in Italy. For instance, the Italian Federation of Textiles, Fashion and Accessories, the overall performance of Made-in-Italy textiles in 2021 showed a broadly positive trend when compared to 2020. Furthermore, the Made in Italy textiles market was valued at more than Euro 5.8 billion (US$6.9 billion) in 2021, representing a 9.6 percent increase over 2020. Textiles generated a surplus equal to approximately 13.5 percent of the overall trade balance of the textiles-fashion apparel supply chain, accounting for 11.1 percent of total sales generated by the textiles-fashion apparel supply chain. Therefore, the textile industry growth in Italy is expected to boost the demand for cyclohexanone, which, in turn, will boost the Europe Cyclohexanone Market size in coming years.
Europe Cyclohexanone Market Drivers
Growth of Pharmaceutical Industry
Cyclohexanone consisting of ketone and aldehydes property is used as an additive in pharmaceutical intermediates to improve the rate of oxidation to ensure the stability of pharmaceutical medicines.
