Published Date : Nov 2020 | No. of Pages : 250 Pages | Category : Chemical and Material

The global Para Nitrochlorobenzene market size is expected to be worth around US$ 420.6 million by 2027, according to a new report by Vision Research Reports.

The global Para Nitrochlorobenzene market size was valued at US$ 303 million in 2019 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 4.0% during forecast period 2020 to 2027.

Growth Factors

The market is mainly driven by the consumption of para nitrochlorobenzene (PNCB) for the production of generic medicine. Para nitrochlorobenzene is one of the primary raw materials used for the manufacturing of paracetamol, which is the most common generic medicine globally. Para nitrochlorobenzene, also called 4-Nitrochlorobenzene, is a pale yellow solid. It is a form of nitrochlorobenzene (NCB) and accounts for a global share of 59% in the total NCB market. NCB is produced by the reaction of and chlorobenzene. NCB and its derivatives are majorly used in the production of a wide range of chemical intermediates, dyes, and antioxidants used in rubber processing.


Dyes emerged as the most dominant application of para nitrochlorobenzene (PNCB) in 2019 in terms of revenue on account of growing textile market, especially in the developing countries of Asia Pacific.

China and India are the leading producers of PNCB. The growth in benzene production in China and Southeast Asia is, thus, anticipated to generate feedstock availability for the manufacturers of chlorobenzene and its derivatives. One of the planned capacity expansions is the expansion of the Petronas refinery in Malaysia, which is expected to grow by an additional 667,000 mt/year. Moreover, in May 2019, PetroChina’s Huabei refinery announced an expansion plan to reach 200,000 b/d from 100,000 b/d. These expansions are anticipated to increase the annual benzene supply, especially in Asia, thus benefitting the entire benzene value chain in terms of raw material availability, price, and constant supply.

The benzene supply is anticipated to directly have a positive influence on the production of nitrobenzene, chlorobenzene, styrene, and phenol. Para nitrochlorobenzene is on the third stage of the benzene value chain. Its production is anticipated to be positively influenced by the growth in chlorobenzene production.

In spite of the positive outlook of PNCB production, the consumption is anticipated to be hindered by the stringent regulations on the chemical. Nitrofen and parathion are the active ingredients used in pesticides that are manufactured from para nitrochlorobenzene. Both these chemicals are banned in certain countries mainly due to their insolubility in water, which causes harm to the aquatic life and increases the soil salinity. Thus, demand for para nitrochlorobenzene in pesticide manufacturing is anticipated to grow at a slow pace over the forecast period.

Report Highlights

Para nitrochlorobenzene finds application in the production of dyes, pesticides, rubber chemicals, and other products, such as pharmaceutical intermediates and other chemicals. In 2019, the dyes segment led the market and accounted for a share of 28.5% in terms of revenue. 

The rubber chemicals segment is anticipated to register the fastest CAGR of 4.8% in terms of revenue from 2020 to 2027. This is attributed to rising demand for rubber and plastic products across different end-use industries, including automotive, construction, electronics, and consumer goods. 

Rubber finds majority of its usage in the production of tires, which have a significant demand in the global 4-Nitrochlorobenzene market due to growing automotive OEM and aftermarket industries. Tire manufacturers constantly upgrade and make improvements to their existing line of products to meet consumer, regulatory, and environmental requirements.

The chemicals end-use segment held the largest share of 37.9% in 2019 based on revenue. This segment is anticipated to witness favorable growth in the years to come owing to high captive consumption by manufacturers. 

The pharmaceuticals end-use segment is expected to expand at the fastest CAGR of 4.7% based on revenue over the forecast period. Rapidly growing pharmaceutical market is anticipated to have a positive impact on the para nitrochlorobenzene demand for drug manufacturing. 

Asia Pacific was the largest regional para nitrochlorobenzene market in 2019 with a 58.6% share of the overall volume. Rising product demand in China and India, along with significant capital investments in the emerging economies, has boosted the overall consumption of para nitrochlorobenzene. Integration of benzene facilities in the region is expected to play a major role in the future production of para nitrochlorobenzene.

Dyes and pesticides are the major applications of para nitrochlorobenzene in Asia Pacific. Rising demand for dyes from the textile sector and pesticides owing to the presence of vast agricultural lands in the region is expected to drive the product demand over the forecast period. Rubber chemicals are expected to be the fastest growing segment in the years to come owing to widening application scope in plastic and rubber manufacturing. The outsourcing of specialty chemicals production to emerging economies is expected to positively impact the product demand in Asia Pacific.

North America is expected to emerge as the second fastest growing region with a revenue-based CAGR of 4.2% from 2020 to 2027. The PNCB market in North America is majorly dominated by the U.S., followed by Mexico and Canada. The presence of a large number of downstream chemical manufacturers in the region, along with the establishment of specialty chemical manufacturing facilities, has boosted the consumption of para nitrochlorobenzene.
