The global cumene market was valued at $16,330 million in 2015, and is projected to reach $25,089 million by 2022, growing at a CAGR of 6.5% from 2016 to 2022. Cumene, also known as isopropyl-benzene, is an inflammable organic compound, which is derived from an aromatic hydrocarbon with an aliphatic substitution. It is a major constituent of refined fuels and crude oil. It is used in a wide range of industries as a base chemical to produce cumene hydroperoxide, which further produces two commercially crucial chemicals namely acetone and phenol. It is used in sealant, adhesives, as a solvent in paints, lacquers, enamels, in the production of high octane production fuels, and in fuel additives.
