Cresols (Ortho-Cresols, Meta-Cresols, and Para-Cresols) Market to See Incredible Growth During 2016 - 2026

Cresols (Ortho-Cresols, Meta-Cresols, and Para-Cresols)

Cresols Market: Introduction

Cresols is an aromatic organic compound and obtained from coal tar or petroleum as a mixture of three stereoisomers i.e. Ortho Cresols, Meta Cresols and Para Cresols. It is generally referred as tricresol or cresolic acid and very toxic in nature. It is a strong dermal irritant and on inhalation by human, it may cause serious hazards such as dryness, nasal constriction, and throat irritation among others. However it is widely used for variety of applications such as disinfectants, antiseptics, preservative and agrochemicals among others.

Ortho, Meta and Para cresol are stereoisomers and commercially manufactured as phenol derivatives. There are two well-known manufacturing processes of cresol i.e. methylation of phenol using methanol and sulfonation of toluene, followed by hydrolysis. However manufacturing of cresol from toluene is industrially preferred route. It is appeared either as liquid or in solid form with sweet and phenolic odor. Cresol mixture is industrially preferred preservative, solvent, disinfectant and wood preservative. Meta cresol is for manufacturing of herbicides, insecticides, antioxidants, photographic chemicals and explosive. While para cresol is majorly used for manufacturing of antioxidants, dyes and fragrance chemicals. Ortho cresol has found great application as chemical intermediates, pharmaceutical intermediate, disinfectants and solvent.

Cresols Market: Market Dynamics

Average price of cresol is subjected to change with geographies and does not follow volume to revenue ration in each individual geographies. Growing demand for specialty chemicals, pharmaceuticals intermediates and industrial lubricants is expected to drive global consumption of cresols. The growing demand for antioxidants and preservatives is another accelerator for global market of cresols. Sustainability of the global cresols market is majorly depends on price and availability of raw materials. However alarming government regulations on use of cresols for certain applications such as in cosmetics and hair and dye products may restrain the overall consumption of cresols across the globe.
