Global Dibenzyl Toluene Market Highlights 2022 – 2030

The global dibenzyl toluene (DBT) market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of ~2% over the forecast period, i.e., 2022 – 2030. The growth of the market can be attributed to the increasing application of DBT as heat transfer and dielectric fluids, and rising requirement for the efficient storage and transportation of hydrogen. Along with these, increasing usage of the chemical as an industrial solvent in a wide variety of industrial applications such as thinners, paints, lacquers and correction fluids, is also a major factor expected to drive market growth in the years to come. In 2018, toluene worth more than USD 540 million was used for the manufacture of paints and coatings in 2018, which rose up to almost USD 600 million in the years 2020. Additionally, escalating need for effective heat transfer equipment to store oil is evaluated to raise the demand for dibenzyl toluene, which in turn is projected to expand the market in the near future.

The market is segmented by end user into chemicals, petrochemicals, plastics & rubber, oil & gas, pharmaceuticals, and others, out of which, the oil & gas segment is anticipated to hold the largest share in the global dibenzyl toluene market on account of the large-scale production of dibenzyl toluene while manufacturing gasoline and other fuels from crude oil. In addition, the chemicals segment is also predicted to grab a notable share owing the high use of DBT to maintain temperatures in the chemical manufacturing facilities. Furthermore, on the basis of grade, the less than 98% segment is predicted to occupy the largest share during the forecast period ascribing to the lower price and growing application of this type of toluene in heat transfer equipment.  

Major Macro-Economic Indicators Impacting the Market Growth



The chemical industry is a major component of the economy. According to the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis, in 2020, for the U.S., the value added by chemical products as a percentage of GDP was around 1.9%. Additionally, according to the World Bank, Chemical industry in the U.S. accounted for 16.43% to manufacturing value-added in 2018. With the growing demand from end-users, the market for chemical products is expected to grow in future. According to UNEP (United Nations Environment Program), the sales of chemicals are projected to almost double from 2017 to 2030. In the current scenario, Asia Pacific is the largest chemical producing and consuming region. China has the world’s largest chemical industry, that accounted for annual sales of approximately more than USD 1.5 trillion, or about more than one-third of global sales, in recent years. Additionally, a vast consumer base and favorable government policies have boosted investment in China’s chemical industry. Easy availability of low-cost raw material & labor as well as government subsidies and relaxed environmental norms have served as a production base for key vendors globally. On the other hand, according to the FICCI (Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce & Industry), the chemical industry in India was valued at 163 billion in 2019 and it contributed 3.4% to the global chemical industry. It ranks 6th in global chemical production. This statistic shows the lucrative opportunity for the investment in businesses in Asia Pacific countries in the upcoming years.

Global Dibenzyl Toluene Market Regional Synopsis

On the basis of geographical analysis, the global dibenzyl toluene market is segmented into five major regions including North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America and the Middle East & Africa. The market in the Asia Pacific is estimated to witness noteworthy growth over the forecast period on the back of the rising number of activities in the oil industry, growing investments of prominent market players, and increasing manufacturing output in the region. According to the International Energy Agency, the oil demand in Asia is estimated to grow by 77 percent from 2021 to 2025. Whereas, the region’s dependence on oil imports in calculated to reach 81 percent in 2025. Moreover, the market in Europe is anticipated to acquire the largest share during the forecast period, which can be credited to the rise in the number of research and development activities related to the chemicals sector, and strong presence of major market players in the region. North America is also assessed to acquire a significant share in the market by the end of 2030 owing to the rapid growth of oil and gas industry, and increasing demand for DBT from the petrochemicals industry in the United States.
