Benzophenone (Oxybenzone) Market Analysis 

Benzophenone is a carcinogen, mutagen, and endocrine disruptor. It has been linked to a variety of side effects, including genotoxicity, carcinogenicity, and endocrine disruption. In the printing business, benzophenone is utilized as a photo initiator in UV-curing applications such as inks, imaging, and transparent coatings. It belongs to the UV absorber family. Benzophenone works by altering the structural structure of UV light, emitting it at a longer wavelength, and converting it to heat. Benzophenone is largely utilized as a fragrance element in laundry and cleaning products in home care applications. It is added to perfumes to protect them from the sun's rays and the elements. In addition, benzophenone is frequently utilized in adhesives and sealants as an industrial photo initiator.

COVID-19 Impact analysis

  • Benzophenone is largely utilized in the formulation of paints and coatings, which are then used in the building and construction industry. However, the current Covid-19 epidemic has disrupted and affected the supply chain, which has harmed the demand for benzophenone in the building and construction sector.
  • During the COVID-19 epidemic, many countries-imposed trade restrictions on imports and exports due to safety issues which had a negative impact on the Benzophenone (Oxybenzone) market.

Top Impacting Factors

The rise in demand for benzophenone in various applications such as paints & coatings, adhesives & sealants, agrochemical, pharmaceutical, home care, and personal care drives the growth of the global benzophenone market. The market is estimated to be driven by benzophenone's ability to prevent discoloration and photo deterioration of physical, mechanical, and chemical properties of polymers caused by UV light in the near future. Benzotriazole, triazine, and hindered amine light stabilizers are all popular benzophenone alternatives. Benzotriazole has a wide range of absorbance from 270nm to 400nm and is suitable with a variety of polymer systems and additives. This aids in the prevention of gloss loss, cracking, blistering, and color change. Furthermore, these UV absorbers have better qualities than benzophenone, despite the fact that benzotriazole is more expensive than benzophenone. As a result, benzotriazole is widely utilized in paint and coating compositions. Triazine, on the other hand, outperforms benzotriazole and benzophenone in terms of light fastness. It can also be employed in acid-catalyzed systems or acidic rain applications. The benzophenone market is projected to be hampered in the next years as a result of this.
