Benzyl alcohol (Bn-OH) is a sweet-smellingliquor that consists of benzene bearing a singlehydroxymethyl asa substituent. It is clear, colorless chemical liquid with sharp consuming taste and mellow pleasant aromatic odor. It is marginally soluble in water and miscible in diethyl ether and alcohols. Due to low toxicity and high vapor pressure, benzyl alcohol (Bn-OH) is useful asasolvent. It exhibits partial solubility in water and highly soluble in alcohol. Benzyl alcohol is produced through hydrolysis of benzyl chloride and transesterification with methanol. In addition, naturally extracted oil from flowers such as jasmine, hyacinth, and ylang-ylang is used for the production of benzyl alcohol.

Rise in demand forbenzyl alcoholas anti-parasite medicine and common preservative in injectable drugs is anticipated to enhance the segment growth in the pharmaceutical sector. Benzyl alcohol (Bn-OH) is experiencing significant growth over the years owing to its wide applicationas fragrance component, viscosity-decreasing agent, and preservatives. Rapid usage of benzyl alcohol in preservative (2%), solubilizing agent (5%), and disinfectant (10%) further boosts the market growth. According to the report of European Medicines Agency (EMA), benzyl alcohol is widely used in antibiotics, anti-inflammatory products, or neuroleptics to reduce pain. New investments in R&D by industry players create opportunities for the market growth For instance, according to the report of American Chemical Society in 2018, the chemical industry players showed revenue increase of around 13.4% compared to previous year. However, poisonous impact of benzyl alcohol (Bn-OH) and accessibility of less expensive substitutes such as ethyl alcohol, phenoxyethanol, and tolueneare the factors expected to hamper the market growth.
