Nitro Aromatics Market

Nitro Aromatics Market - Global Industry Analysis 2016 - 2020 and Opportunity Assessment 2021 - 2031


Incomplete combustion of fossil fuels or nitration reactions contain nitro-aromatic compounds, which are used as chemical feedstock in the manufacture of explosives, pesticides, herbicides, dyes, pharmaceuticals, and other chemicals. Aromatic nitrocompounds (C6H5NO2) are a class of organic chemicals derived from benzene and its homologues (toluene and xylene), naphthalene, and anthracene by replacing one or more hydrogen atoms with a nitro- group (NO2). Nitro-aromatic compounds is used for manufacturing of textiles, basic chemicals, fertilizers, nitrogen compounds, plastic & rubber in primary forms, dyes & pigments, explosives, basic pharmaceutical products, and gas.

Due to its broad range of uses, nitro-aromatics have been used indiscriminately in the past, resulting in inexorable environmental contamination. Due to this the nitro-aromatics are categorized as recalcitrant and given a hazardous rating of 3. While several traditional pump-and-treat clean-up technologies for removing nitro-aromatics are currently in use, none has proven to be long-term.

Nitro Aromatics Machine Market: Dynamics

The growing demand for rubber in the automobile sector, the growth of the construction industry in many core areas, the growing demand for fertilisers in the agriculture industry, and urbanisation in developing countries have all had an effect on the nitrobenzene market. The industry is also fueled by the ongoing demand for nitrobenzene, which can be used to replace bio-based chemicals like volatile organic compounds and reduce emissions. The tremendous business growth in the near future is due to increased production in the pharmaceuticals, dyes, fertilizer, and pesticide industries.

The hazardous nature of nitro aromatics is a major factor restraining the market growth. Nitro-aromatics are recognized as recalcitrant and given Hazardous Rating-3. Under favorable conditions, nitro aromatics are flammable, and di- and trinitroderivatives are explosive. Cyanosis is the most common acute health problem associated with aromatic nitro- compounds, and anaemia is the most common residual manifestation. The nitro aromatics business is being held back by rising demand for bio-based chemicals and stringent environmental regulations. Non-residential housing investment in the United States, as well as a recovering construction industry in Europe, are expected to present opportunities for nitro aromatics market in near future.

The growing demand for rubber in the automobile sector, the growth of the construction industry in several core areas, the growing demand for fertilizers in the agriculture industry, and urbanization in developing countries have all had an effect on the nitro aromatics market. The tremendous business growth in the near future is due to increased production in the pharmaceuticals, dyes, fertilizer, and pesticide industries. North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, Middle East and Africa, and Latin America are taking measures to grow the market, and these regions have been identified as the core regions for the production of nitro aromatics, with a consistent upward trend in the market.

Nitro Aromatics Market: Regional Outlook

Geographically, Asia Pacific is expected to be the largest market for nitro aromatics. The nitro aromatics demand in this area is being driven by the rapid speed of urbanization in developing countries such as China, India, and Bangladesh. The expansion of the agriculture industry in this area has fueled the nitro aromatics sector. The nitro aromatics market in North America is dominated by the United States. In US, the pharmaceutical industry is driving the nitro aromatics market. The European Commission has suggested lowering VOC emissions, which has increased demand for bio-based chemicals, which is expected to boost nitro aromatics industry growth.

Agricultural advances in Asia Pacific are driving up demand for nitro aromatics. In Asia Pacific, China controls the bulk of the nitro aromatics industry. One of the main factors for the nitro aromatics demand in Asia Pacific is the expansion of the construction industry and the rapid speed of urbanization. Due to increased demand for bio-based chemicals and stringent environmental legislation, the nitro aromatics market in the Middle East and Africa is growing. Latin America accounts for a sizable portion of the nitro aromatics industry. In this area, Brazil is one of the major markets for nitro aromatics.

Nitrobenzene To Be The Main Driving Factor For The Market

Nitro aromatics are of various types such as nitro benzene, mono- and dinitrotoluenes, trinitrotoluene (tnt), tetryl, mononitrochlorobenzenes, etc. Nitrobenzene segment has the highest demand in nitro aromatics market. Nitrobenzene is an organic compound that is used in the manufacture of aniline and serves as a precursor for a variety of chemicals and derivatives used in cosmetics, agriculture, pharmaceuticals, and other industrial applications.

Nitrobenzene is a pesticide additive that is used specifically. Nitrobenzene, according to Greenwell Biotech, is expected to boost plant energy and yield, especially in flowering plants. However, owing to the global supply of other pesticide additives, its adoption as a pesticide additive is expected to be gradual.

Nitrobenzene is used in the pharmaceutical industry to make paracetamol, and is the most widely used drug on the planet. However, nitrobenzene is converted to aniline during the paracetamol production process and then used in the medication formulation. Since India and China produce the majority of paracetamol, Asia Pacific is the largest user of aniline and hence nitrobenzene in the pharmaceutical industry.
