The global demand for Resorcinol Market is presumed to reach the valuation of nearly USD XX MN by 2026 from USD XX MN in 2019 with a CAGR of XX% under the study period of 2020 - 2026.
Resorcinol, or resorcin, is a white crystalline solid and is soluble in alcohol, ether and water. It has slightly bittersweet taste and is produced by melting resins, such as asafetida and galbanum with potassium hydroxide (KOH) or by the distillation of brazilwood extract. This organic compound enhances the adhesive strength of rubber and wood products and is used in the manufacturing of fire retardants, dyes, UV stabilizers, explosives and herbicides. It is widely used in industries, including rubber, chemical, automotive, construction, etc.
The combination of factors such as rapid growth of the automotive industry, growing construction of residential and commercial complexes, and increasing prevalence of skin-related medical ailments across the globe are the key factors driving the growth of the market. Resorcinol is widely used in resin making owing to its high cost-effectiveness, chemical stability, resistance to solvents, salt-water, acids, and oil. With the growth of the automotive sector, there is an emerging need for various rubber-based products, including belts, tires and rubber-coated fabrics. This is creating a new opportunity for the market as resorcinol is used as a binding medium for rubber and reinforcing cords. Increasing utilization of resorcinol as an antiseptic and disinfectant in skincare products for the treatment of acne, psoriasis, eczema, calluses, and warts is favouring the market growth. Additionally, increasing utilization of the compound in the production of non-halogenated flame-retardants and various agricultural chemicals is predicted to boost the demand growth further. However, the gap between supply and demand due to uneven shutdown of the plant has significantly affected the growth. In past three years, supply for resorcinol has been outpacing demand. In response to this, players within the market are expanding their production capacity to meet the future demand and to provide a steady supply.
