Pentachlorophenol Market Overview - 2027
Pentachlorophenol (PCP), also known as chlorophenol and penchlorol, is a chlorine-based hydrocarbon.It has needle like structure anda color range from cream to pale brown depending on its purity. PCP is almost soluble in water, freely soluble in alcohol or ether and marginally soluble in cold petroleum ether. It is manufactured through stepwise chlorination phenols in the presence of catalyst. In addition, this can be produced through the alkaline hydrolysis of hexachlorobenzene. It is primarily used to protect timber from wood boring insects and fungal rotting, and widely used biocide in wood, textile, leather, and paper industries.
Rise in usage of PCPto protect pine poles at manufacturing facility with binding agents is anticipated to drive the market demand. Additional usage of global pentachlorophenol as wood preservative, impregnation agent in textile, andas bactericide in tanning of pulp are expected to drive the segment growth over the projected timeframe. Moreover, application of PCP with micro contaminants, such asfurans and hexachlorobenzene,further fuel the market growth. However, environmental issues related with PCP and availability of alternatives, such as creosote with less harmful effects, are anticipated to hamper the growth of the market.Technological advancements in PCP production with cost effective and ecofriendly products is anticipated to create new opportunities during the forecast period.
