Cumene is a clear and colorless liquid with an aromatic odor, and is a constituent of finished fuels and crude oil. It has a molecular weight of 120.2 (g/mol) with a boiling point of 152153C and melting point of -96C. It is used in petroleum products, and as a thinner for paints, lacquers, enamels, and high octane fuels, and production of acetophenone, acetone, methylstyrene, and phenol. In addition, it is used in the production of acetophenone, acetone, methylstyrene, and phenol.

Growth in population and rise in income levels present numerous opportunities for the market expansion. Moreover, development of the overall chemical industry globally and rise in demand for phenolic resins are further anticipated to boost the overall growth. In addition, increase in production of bisphenol-A for the production of polycarbonate & epoxy resins and growth in demand for phenol in the production of composites, plastics, and laminates are anticipated to supplement the global market. However, volatile prices of crude oil and hazardous health effects of cumene are some factors anticipated to hamper the overall growth.

The phenol/acetone segment accounted for the highest share, in terms of volume, in 2015. In response to the perennial modifications in the paints & coatings industry, efficient thinners are in demand globally. Thus, increase in requirement of cumene as a thinner and rise in the use of phenol-based composites and plastics fuel the demand globally.
