Report Description

Toluene demand in India is projected to cross 923 thousand tonnes by 2030 growing at a healthy CAGR, on account of increasing consumption in the manufacturing of Benzene and Xylene for its use in production of plastics, fibers, dyes, detergents and drugs etc. Toluene has the capability to dissolve several organic compounds and hence it is gaining popularity as solvent in paints, lacquers, thinners, glues, correction fluid and nail polish remover. Toluene being a major by - product in the manufacturing process of Styrene, has applications in the production of Toluene diisocynate for further manufacturing of Polyurethane which is further used in the manufacturing of foams for furniture, seats etc. Toluene is also used in manufacture of Trinitrotoluene (TNT) which is used in small quantities for making explosives. With the increasing demand of cleaner and better fuels for automobiles, Toluene is used as an ingredient to produce better quality fuel by using it in the blending of petrol.

Currently, Reliance Industries, Indian Oil Corporation Limited and Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited are three major Toluene manufacturers in India. India is also dependent on countries such as Singapore, Thailand, United Arab Emirates etc. for the import of Toluene; thus, with the increasing demand of Toluene in the domestic market and no expansion plans by major manufacturing industries in India, import of Toluene is expected to increase in the coming years.
