Anisole Underlines a Plethora of Uses Across Diverse End-use Industries

It is identified that the anisole market is witnessing an unprecedented surge over the past few years. There has been robust growth in market shares from the base year to the current. The change of dynamics in the market can be attributed to the wide number of usages of anisole in different industries.

Anisole is having high demand from the pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and food & beverages industries. It is highly getting employed as an intermediate in the manufacture of dyes, which is expected to fuel the rise in market shares through the forecast period.

Additionally, it is observed that owing to the surge in disposable income, the urban populace across the globe is spending a lot on luxury products. There is a high sale of perfumes identified during the period 2017-2021. This is estimated to be a key demand driver augmenting the anisole industry growth through 2032.

Upscaling demand for scents, creams, and other cosmetic products is likely to propel the industry’s expansion. Moreover, anisole is also highly being adopted across the pharmaceutical industry for the manufacture of multiple ailments. The government across developing economies is formulating supportive regulations towards the use of anisole for manufacturing pharmaceutical products.

The manufacturers in the anisole industry are also deploying technological innovations that are aimed at improving the process of manufacturing. This is likely to yield products with high purity levels, which is estimated to have an assertive influence on the growth of the anisole market.

Although the market is having positive growth, it is estimated that certain elements prevailing in the industry are likely to curb the growth in the long run. There is volatility in the price of raw materials and the concerns related to the availability of these raw materials are anticipated to impede the expansion of the market through the forecast period.

Take of Key Industry Players to Strengthen their Foothold

Due to the existence of numerous international and regional companies, the market for anisole is very competitive. To strengthen their position in the market, major players are implementing a variety of methods, including product portfolio growth and regional development. The key players are adopting various business strategies, such as mergers and acquisitions, to expand their geographic presence and consumer base across the world. Therefore, the market is projected to register significant growth through the forecast period.

Anisole, also known as methoxybenzene can be described as an organic compound and colourless liquid with smell similar to that of anise seed. Anisole is prepared synthetically and is a precursor of other synthetic compounds and it is an ether.

The chemical formula of anisole is CH3OC6H5. Anisole has a good solubility in diethyl ether, ethanol, benzene, chloroform, toluene and most of the organic solvents. It is used as a solvent, insect pheromone, and as an intermediate in manufacturing of dyes, fragrances, pharmaceuticals, etc.

Anisole is generally supplied to end-users in drums or specially constructed tanks for hazardous liquids commonly called as ISO TANKS. Anisole suffers electrophilic aromatic reaction quicker than benzene, which reacts relatively quicker than nitrobenzene. Anisole is produced by the reaction of sodium phenoxide with methyl bromide and Williamson ether synthesis.

Rapid industrialization along with rising use of intermediate chemicals for manufacturing of other products such as polycarbonates, and detergents is expected to promote the expansion of capacity over the forecast period. It is utilized in manufacturing nanoparticles (tin oxide) and inorganic complexes, rising the demand for anisole, which is expected to boost the market growth.

The compound is an important raw material for producing Guaiacol, MEHQ & 4-MAP.
