LONDON--()--Technavio has announced the top five leading vendors in their recent global cyclohexane market report from 2017-2021. This market research report also lists six other prominent vendors that are expected to impact the market during the forecast period.

Competitive vendor landscape

The competition among the players in the global cyclohexane market is primarily based on technology, trait leadership, price, quality, and cost. Several global and regional players are present in the market. It is dominated by large-scale vendors like BASF, CEPSA, Chevron Phillips Chemical, ExxonMobil, and Huntsman and is highly competitive. These players have numerous production facilities and hence have vast geographical presence. The small regional vendors contribute a considerable amount of market share.

According to Ajay Adikhari, a lead analyst at Technavio for specialty chemicals research, “The rising demand for caprolactam in China is one of the factors that is driving the growth of the cyclohexane market. The largest importer and producer of nylon filament yarn in the world is China. China is also claimed to be the largest importer of caprolactam in the world. In the next five years, both production and demand for caprolactam is expected to rise because of development of industries such as automotive, military, and sports equipment in China.”

BASF increased its capacity for cyclohexane oxidation at its Antwerp Verbund site to 50,000 tons per year. The expansion was implemented as part of two long-term planned turnarounds and was completed by the end of 2014. The cyclohexane oxidation capacity expansion has further increased the backward integration of the polyamide value chain at the Antwerp Verbund site and has helped in reducing dependency on external suppliers of cyclohexane oxidation products.
