An organic chemical with an unplanted and strong order benzyl chloride. Benzyl chloride is also known as α-chlorotoluene. It is a colorless liquid at room temperature. It is used as an intermediate that is used as a substrate to produce many chemicals differing from benzyl alcohol, flavor products,  pharmaceuticals products, and dyes. It is also used in the production of quaternary ammonium compounds also used as a photographic developer and in phthalates and benzyl cyanide. Benzyl chloride is prepared by the gas-phase photochemical reaction of toluene with chlorine and is used to change the properties of molecules by adding a benzyl functionality to the product. Benzyl chloride has applications like sanitizing surfactants and plasticizers agents. Benzyl chloride is used in many industries such as healthcare, water, and wastewater treatment, food and beverage, consumer and others.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

  • Due to COVID-19 outbreak, the market of benzyl chloride market was negatively affected.
  • COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted the global supply chain by making it difficult for the manufactures to get the materials with minimum human contact. The consumption of benzyl chloride decreased which reduced the demand for the benzyl chloride market.
  • Benzyl chloride is also used in manufacturing pharmaceutical products which will help the industrial supply chain which was affected by COVID-19.
  • The industries such as food and beverage, healthcare, consumer, water and wastewater treatment, and others were shut down during the COVID-19 pandemic decreasing the demand for benzyl chloride which affected the market.

Top Impacting Factors

The use of benzyl chloride as precures of benzyl esters is increasing in many applications such as perfumes, flavorants and plasticizers in many countries drives the growth of the product market . The use of benzyl chloride in water treatment and healthcare industries is increasing. Benzyl chloride is used in the production of benzyl alcohol in paints and the coating industry is rising. However, exposure to benzyl chloride is risky to health. It can cause lung damage, skin and eyes irritation, and also impact on the nervous system. Due to this, the government has stringent the use of benzyl chloride which can restrain the growth of the benzyl chloride market.
