Vinyl Cyclohexane Market Research, 2031

The global vinyl cyclohexane market was valued at $57.4 million in 2021 and is projected to reach $94.8 million by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 5.3% from 2022 to 2031.

Vinyl cyclohexene is an organic compound consisting of a vinyl group attached to the cyclohexene ring. It is a colorless liquid. It is an organic compound having a unique set of properties. For example, the polymers (with isotactic configuration) that are based on vinyl cyclohexane, have exceptional heat resistance capability and also have a high melting point.

Vinyl cyclohexane is primarily used in the chemical and polymer industry due to its unique set of properties. For instance, vinyl cyclohexane-based polymers with isotactic structure, which may be produced by polymerizing vinyl cyclohexane in the presence of a Ziegler-Natta catalyst, has a high melting point and great heat resistance.

Vinyl Cyclohexane Market

The key element driving the demand for the vinyl cyclohexane market is the increase in demand from the paints and coatings industry in developing and developed nations. The vinyl cyclohexane market will be positively impacted by expanding applications, such as in medical devices, and the development and expansion of numerous end-user sectors, particularly in developing economies. Increased consumer preference for polymers, along with anticipated growth in potential vinyl cyclohexane applications, rising major companies' investment in research and development capabilities, increase in the production of cars using nylon, and growing emphasis on technological advancements and modernization of production methods will drive the demand for vinyl cyclohexane market.

The vinyl cyclohexane market is anticipated to grow moderately as a result of increased demand from the chemical industry and R&D spending. Over the past decade, market participants have made an effort to take advantage of the Asian market's potential for growth. Chemical businesses have increased their R&D efforts as a result of strong growth visibility and new prospects. In the last few years, there has been an increase in demand for both a custom synthesis service and supply chain integration. For instance, the top 20 chemical businesses have invested an average of 3.3% of their sales income on research during the last three years. As businesses began to spend on product development and research studies, the ratio increased from 2.7% to 3.3%.

There are many studies using vinyl cyclohexane-based polymers since scientists in the polymer sector are continually looking for a novel substance or derivative that has better qualities than conventional polymers. Due to their low birefringence and high heat deflection temperature, vinyl cyclohexane-based polymers are suitable for optical applications (optical data storage media and lenses). Additionally, the possible commercialization of vinyl cyclohexane-based polymers and the expansion of research activities in the polymer industry will drive the vinyl cyclohexane market share.

New copolymers are manufactured with improved operational capabilities and superior working efficiency. Polymers based on vinyl cyclohexane have demonstrated considerable potential in a number of applications. The demand for the product will increase as new types of polymers and copolymers are developed to address the shortcomings of conventional polymers.

However, insufficiency in raw material demand and supply owing to the lockdown and volatility in their prices is the major hindrance for the vinyl cyclohexane market. In addition, the vinyl cyclohexane market growth rate will be slowed down by high expenses related to research and development, increased environmental safety and conservation concerns, harmful impacts on human health, an increase in the availability of replacements, and severe international trade restrictions. A number of regulatory agencies, including the ECHA and the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals, have designated vinyl cyclohexane as a hazardous substance (GHS). Logistics and distribution operations are challenging to manage due to the product's flammability. The expansion of the industry will also be seriously threatened by increased product prices.

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused a disruption in the supply chain of the global vinyl cyclohexane market. The scarcity of raw materials is a primary cause for disruption in demand and supply chain. At every point throughout the value chain, the COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant influence on the chemical sector. Due to unpredictability in the global economy and capital markets, product demand decreased. As many nations are in the second or third phase of lockdown, value chain disruptions are likely to continue in the near future.
