Toluene Market size was valued at USD 23.29 billion in 2021 and is poised to grow from USD 24.53 billion in 2022 to USD 37.39 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 5.4% in the forecast period (2023-2030).

The primary organic growth tactics chosen by market participants in the toluene industry include product development, capacity expansion, and innovation. Key toluene players are gaining a competitive edge thanks to these initiatives, which are assisting them in growing their regional presence and capturing market share. For instance, INEOS finalized the purchase of BP's global Aromatics & Acetyls division in January 2021. The transaction included ten top joint ventures and 15 locations worldwide (five in the Americas, two in Europe, and eight in Asia). 'BASF SE', 'ExxonMobil Chemical', 'Royal Dutch Shell Plc', 'China Petroleum & Chemical Corporation (Sinopec Corp.)', 'BP plc', 'Covestro AG', 'LyondellBasell Industries Holdings B.V.', 'Chevron Phillips Chemical Company', 'Mitsui Chemicals Inc.', 'Braskem S.A.', 'Eastman Chemical Company', 'China National Chemical Corporation (ChemChina)', 'INEOS Group AG', 'Huntsman Corporation', 'Dow Inc.', 'PTT Global Chemical Public Company Limited', 'Reliance Industries Limited', 'Formosa Chemicals & Fibre Corp.', 'TotalEnergies SE', 'Toray Industries, Inc.'

The main driver fueling the expansion of the global toluene market is the rising use of toluene in various end-use industries. For instance, toluene is a solvent used in paints, lacquers, thinners, glues, correction fluid, printing, and leather tanning. Another significant element fueling the market's expansion is the usage of toluene in the manufacture of gasoline.

Toluene is a solvent used in several industrial settings. In the chemical industry, these solvents are employed in the production of paints, glues, printing, leather tanning procedures, and other products. Most chemical businesses use toluene as a solvent to create other kinds of compounds like phenol, benzoic acid, nitrobenzene, and benzyl chloride. For usage in internal combustion engines, the toluene chemical can also be added to gasoline as an octane enhancer. For both two-stroke and four-stroke engines, i.e., as fuel, absolute toluene is employed. The chemical industry's demand for toluene is anticipated to increase significantly throughout the projected period as a result of these factors.

With a share of 48.53 % in the global toluene market in 2021, the Asia Pacific region dominated the market and is expected to continue to do so during the forecast period. The largest market share of the APAC toluene market has been gathered by the developing petrochemical sector in nations like India, Thailand, Taiwan, and others. The demand for toluene in the key APAC regions has also been fueled by the region's ongoing industrialization and urbanization. Since China is the world's largest producer of toluene and the demand for chemicals, paints, coatings, and adhesives is on the rise, the country topped the Asia-Pacific area with the highest shares.
