Stilbene Market

Stilbene Market : Global Industry Analysis 2016 - 2020 and Opportunity Assessment 2021 - 2031

Market Overview

Stilbeneisa low molecular weight organic compound discovered by French chemist Auguste Laurent in 1843. The name stilbene was derived from a Greek word called as ‘stilbos’, which means ‘shining’.The compoundis widely used in the manufacture of industrial dyes, optical brightners, phosphor (luminescence), and many other products.

Some of the derivatives of the compound have estrogenic activity which can be utilized for the synthesis of non-steroidal synthetic estrogen. Certain derivatives of the compound can be used in the production of medicine to lower blood sugar level and to control fat and cholesterol level in blood. The compound exists in two possible isomers one is cis-stilbene and another one is trans-stilbene, of which cis-isomer of the compound is less stable due to steric hindrance.

Several derivatives like stilbenoids are naturally present in plants. However, there are various methods by which the compound can be synthesized, some of the prominent methods are by reduction of benzoin using zinc amalgam, by reacting iodobenzene and styrene in the presence of Palladium. If UV light is applied, trans-cis isomerization can be observed in the case of stilbene.

What are the Growth Factors for Global Stilbene Market and the Challenges faced by the Stilbene Market Participants:

With the increasing demand for the use of dyes in the textile and paint industries, the stilbene market growth is expected to be benefited from the growth potential, as the compoundis used extensively for the production of dyes. Further, consumption of this compound is also projected to gain from rising demand of optical brighteners from the various end use industries such as textiles, paints and coatings, paper and printingduring the assessment period.

Apart from industrial chemicals, scintillator industry is also recognized as an end use industry to augment the growth of stilbene market, as trans-isomer of the compound can be used as fluorescence material in scintillator. Moreover, the growing research in the medical field for controlling the blood sugar level, cholesterol level and level of fats is anticipated to commercialize the use of stilbene in the medical field which will benefit its market in the coming years.

The regional government norms and safety standards rules and regulations related with the hazard generated from synthesizing, utilizing and transporting a chemical is also applicable in the case of stilbene, where its controlled formulation and usage may prevent the overall rate of consumption. Besides, the availability of substitutes such asDiphenyl Pyrazoline,may restrict market of the compoundin applications such as optical brighteners.

Briefly explain how Covid-19 Pandemic has impacted the Global Market of Stilbene

With the onset of the covid-19 pandemic and resultant severe lockdowns across the globe, industrial activity has been affected to a significant extent,owing to supply chain disruptions and demand slowdown. The same isalso true for the stilbene market, where decrease in the production of optical brighteners, dyes and fluorescence in the first few quarters of 2020 have impacted the market growth of the compound to a great extent. However, with the initiatives taken by the respectivecountries to revive the economic growth and improve performance of the industrial economy, the stilbene market is expected to achieve the desirable growth in the upcoming quarters.

Give an overview for the Regional Outlook of the Global Stilbene Market:

In Asia-Pacific region, significant growth in countries such as, China, India, ASEAN nations and other countries is anticipated to create greater opportunities for stilbene market owing to increasing demand of dyes and optical brighteners in textile, paper and paints industries. Rise in the demand of different types of dyes and optical brighteners in the textile industries in African region can provide considerable opportunities for stilbene market.

North America and Europe are the other key regions for the compound, and these regionsalso hold a prominent share of global manufacturing capacity. The U.S. and Germany are the leading markets for Stilbene in these regions. Latin America and Middle East are expected to show a moderate growth in the global stilbene market during the forecast period.
