Trimethylhydroquinone Market Outlook - 2021-2028

The global trimethylhydroquinone market was valued at $944.2 million in 2020, and is projected to reach $1,282.6 million by 2028, growing at a CAGR of 4.0% from 2021 to 2028.

Trimethylhydroquinone (TMHQ) is also known as 2,3,5-trimethylhydroquinone. It can be utilized in the manufacturing of pigments, dyes, antioxidants, and others. However, the important application of TMHQ is as an intermediate in the industrial manufacturing of vitamin E. Vitamin E has significant importance in food manufacturing, cattle breeding, and medicine due to which there is rising interest in the methods for the preparation of 2,3,5-trimethylhydroquinone.

The factor contributing towardthe trimethylhydroquinone market growth is increased demand for health supplement, vitamin E from cosmetic industry, and others. In addition, rise in spending on cosmetics and personal care goods in developed countries drives the trimethylhydroquinone market. However, shifting consumer preference toward natural vitamin E hinders the market growth for trimethylhydroquinone,as it used in the manufacturing of synthetic vitamin E. For instance, some of the research centers in countries, such as Denmark, conducted research on dairy cow. They fed dairy cow with grass comprising natural vitamin E and synthetic vitamin E. The dairy cow fed with grass comprising synthetic vitamin E resulted in less vitamin E content than natural vitamin E. On the contrary, the growing active pharmaceutical industry is expected to offer lucrative opportunities for the key trimethylhydroquinone market industrial participants.

The trimethylhydroquinone market is segmented on the basis ofapplication and region.Depending on application, the market is segregated intosynthesis of vitamin E, drug production, dyes, and others. Region-wise, the trimethylhydroquinone market is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA. The trimethylhydroquinone market share is also analyzed across applications.

The trimethylhydroquinone market analysis covers in-depth information of the major industry participants.

Synthesis of Vitamin E is projected as the most lucrative segment.

By application, the synthesis of vitamin E segment garnered highest market share in 2020 in terms of volume. It has garnered 66.4% in 2020, in terms of volume. Vitamin E is an important product that is widely used in food, medicine, cosmetics, and cattle breeding applications. It has anti-oxidant and anti-aging properties that propel its use in cosmetics. Moreover, vitamin E also prevents cardiovascular disease and cancer, which also leads to its increased demand. Thus, industrial synthesis of vitamin E is in high demand, which acts as a demand driver for trimethylhydroquinone, thereby significantly contributing to the trimethylhydroquinone market growth.          

Trimethylhydroquinone Market
By Region
North America

Asia-Pacific holds a dominant position in 2020 and would continue to maintain the lead over the forecast period.

Region-wise, Asia-Pacific is expected to grow at a CAGR of 38.7%, in terms of volume, during the forecast period. This is attributed to the presence of emerging economies such as India, China, Japan, and South Korea. These emerging economies have rapidly growing consumer base such asconstruction, personal care, pharmaceutical, and others. China is one of the major contributors to the trimethylhydroquinone market, owing tohuge consumer base and presence of key players in the trimethylhydroquinone market. Asia-Pacific is the third largest pharmaceutical market in the world after North America and Europe. The increasing scarcity of medications in various nations drives the expansion of the pharmaceutical market in Asia-Pacific.

Impact of COVID-19 on the trimethylhydroquinone market

  • The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic led to partial or complete shutdown of production facilities, which do not come under essential goods, owing to prolonged lockdown in major countries such as the U.S., China, Japan, India, and Germany. It has led to either closure or suspension of their production activities in most of the industrial units across the world.
  • The COVID-19 outbreak has affected the demand as well as manufacturing of trimethylhydroquinone.
  • The manufacturing activities of industries, such as construction, weredisrupted, owing to the spread of COVID-19 in many countries across the globe, which resulted in decrease in demand for trimethylhydroquinone.
  • The global health crisis affected the chemical industry supply chain to a major extent, which led to a major impact on raw material procurement.
  • The increased awareness regarding health and fitness resulted in increased demand for dietary supplements, which has consequently increased the demand for trimethylhydroquinone, as it is used in the manufacturing of vitamin E.
  • The cosmetics industry has witnessed decrease in product demand in the first quarter of 2020, owing to COVID-19 outbreak. In addition, store closures have also affected the demand for cosmetics products. This has consequently decreased the demand for cosmetics raw materials such as trimethylhydroquinone. On the contrary, some of the positive effects of the pandemic on cosmetic products are increase in online sales, owing to closure of saloons and beauty parlors.

Analyst Review

According to the CXOs of leading companies, the trimethylhydroquinone market is facing challenges such as stringent regulation for application of trimethylhydroquinone in skin care related application. Trimethylhydroquinone witnessed decrease in demand from synthetic vitamin E manufacturers, owing to increase in demand for natural vitamin E. On the contrary, supply and demand imbalance for natural vitamin E is expected to create opportunities for synthetic vitamin E. This is correspondingly expected to increase the demand for trimethylhydroquinone.
