In this report, Technavio highlights the rising demand for m-cresol as one of the key emerging trends driving the global market:
Rising demand for m-cresol
M-cresol is gaining popularity in the market due to the growing significance and the number of applications of m-cresol in various end-use industries. It is extensively being used in the food and beverage, pharmaceuticals, and agrochemicals segments. It is widely used as a bactericide in the processing of pharmaceuticals, pesticides, and other disinfectants, owing to its antimicrobial properties. In pharmaceuticals, it is also being used as a preservative. M-cresol is used as a pesticide for the treatment of the stems of fruit trees and plants, in agrochemicals.
“M-cresol and p-cresol are coupled to produce antioxidants such as BHT and arylphosphates. They are used as plasticizers, flame retardants, and catalysts. Another significant usage of m-cresol is its use in the production of synthetic vitamin E and fragrances and flavoring agents for food products, preservatives, and other chemicals. Certain application areas such as lubricating oils, solvents, paints, fire and wood preservatives, and dyes and pigments are witnessing an increase in consumption of m-cresol,” says a senior analyst at Technavio for research on specialty chemicals.
