The widespread adoption of toluene across various industry verticals, such as construction, chemical manufacturing, pharmaceuticals, and military and defense, on account of its diverse chemical properties is currently driving the toluene market growth. For instance, in the automotive sector, toluene is widely used as a fuel additive in motor vehicles due to its low sensitivity and high-octane ratings, which, in turn, is creating a positive outlook for the market. Additionally, the increasing demand for aromatics in the petrochemical sector for manufacturing dyes, agrochemicals, fertilizers, and trinitrotoluene (TNT) explosives is further catalyzing the market growth. Besides this, significant improvements in value chain, adoption of proactive strategies by key players, and rapid expansion of production facilities to cater to the rising industrial demand are positively influencing the market growth. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the global toluene market to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during 2021-2026.
