Cyclohexane Market is Encouraged to Reach US$ 42 Billion by 2032 | Persistence Market Research

Market Study on Cyclohexane: Textiles & Automobiles to Remain Important End-use Sectors

New York, March 02, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The global Cyclohexane Market has reached a size of US$ 23 Billion in 2022 and it is projected to reach US$ 42 Billion by 2032. The global cyclohexane market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 5.1% from 2023 to 2032.

Cyclohexane is a cyclic hydrocarbon with the molecular formula C6H12. It is an aromatic compound and a colorless liquid at room temperature. Cyclohexane has a wide range of commercial applications in the chemical industry, including production of adipic acid and caprolactam which are used in manufacturing nylon, paint remover, solvents for waxes, oils, and resins, and products from petrochemicals like benzene and toluene. Cyclohexane also serves as a feedstock for the production of other organic chemicals such as cyclohexanol and cyclohexanone.
