Market Insights on Stilbene covering sales outlook, demand forecast & up-to-date key trends

Stilbene Market by Type, End Use Application & Region | Forecast 2023 to 2033

Stilbene Market Outlook (2023 to 2033)

Global demand for Stilbene Market is expected to reach a market valuation of US$ 0.5 Billion by the end of the year 2023, accelerating at a CAGR of 5.5% over the forecast period (2023 to 2033). Stilbene is an organic compound that has a wide range of applications in various industries, such as the pharmaceutical, cosmetic, and plastic industries. It is primarily used in the production of stilbene derivatives, including resveratrol, which is used in dietary supplements and cosmetics, and stilbene-based polymers, which are used in the production of plastic materials.

The stilbene market is expected to grow in the coming years due to the increasing demand for resveratrol and other stilbene derivatives. The demand for resveratrol is primarily driven by its potential health benefits, including antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Additionally, the growing awareness of the harmful effects of synthetic chemicals in cosmetics and personal care products is expected to increase the demand for natural ingredients such as resveratrol.

The market is supported by:

  • Increasing demand for resveratrol
  • Growing demand for natural ingredients
  • Increased use in the plastic industry
  • Technological advancements
  • Diversified application
  • Growing pharmaceutical and nutraceutical industries
  • Rapidly growing plastic industry
  • Growing awareness of sustainable and eco-friendly processes
  • Increasing government investments in research and development
  • outstanding customer and employee experience

The Asia Pacific Stilbene market is expected to experience significant growth in the coming years due to several factors. Consumers in the Asia Pacific region are increasingly seeking natural and organic ingredients in their products. This trend has resulted in an increased demand for resveratrol, a stilbene derivative that is derived from natural sources such as grapes and berries. The pharmaceutical and nutraceutical industries in the Asia Pacific region are experiencing significant growth, which has resulted in an increased demand for stilbene derivatives, such as resveratrol. The plastic industry in the Asia Pacific region is growing at a rapid pace, which has resulted in an increased demand for stilbene-based polymers.

The North American Stilbene market is expected to experience steady growth in the coming years due to several factors. It is increasingly being used in the nutraceutical and pharmaceutical industries due to its potential health benefits, such as anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. The growing demand for natural ingredients is also driving the demand for resveratrol in North America. Furthermore, the stilbene-based polymers are used in the production of plastic materials, which are in high demand in various industries across the North American market. The stilbene-based polymers offer several advantages, including good thermal and mechanical properties, which are driving their demand.

The stilbene market is a competitive one, with several key players operating globally. Some of the major players in the market include Sigma-Aldrich Corporation, BASF SE, Merck KGaA, Evonik Industries AG, Eastman Chemical Company, Wanhua Chemical Group Co. Ltd., Alfa Aesar, and TCI Chemicals. These companies are investing heavily in research and development to develop new and innovative products to meet the growing demand for stilbene and its derivatives in various applications, such as the pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, and plastic industries.

In 2020, Inrad Optics introduced a new line of Scintinel™ stilbene radiation detectors for quick neutron detection, which are now available for purchase. These detectors, available in diameters ranging from one inch to five inches, feature a photomultiplier tube with voltage divider electronics coupled with a stilbene scintillation crystal. The price for the one-inch detector starts at $2,815.

Scintinel™ stilbene offers several benefits, including high sensitivity to neutrons and excellent discrimination between neutrons and gamma-ray radiation, making it easier to identify special nuclear material without false alarms caused by benign gamma sources. Additionally, stilbene is a solid-state material that is not hazardous. In comparison to liquid and plastic scintillators, stilbene offers superior performance advantages. Crystalline stilbene is known to provide better pulse shape discrimination, lower energy thresholds, higher gamma rejection, and higher neutron efficiency.

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.
