酚 (C6H5OH) 是芳香族化合物之一，廣泛活用在化學產業作為前驅體和中間體。用於各種化學物質 (BPA，酚醛樹脂，己內醯胺，烷基酚，苯胺(ANILINE)，2,6-kishirenoru等) 的原料，還有作為汽車零件、光學媒體、合板用黏劑、合成纖維、地毯等原料。現在中國是最大的生產國、消費國。全球酚市場2015∼2020年的年複合成長率 (CAGR) 預計達到約4％。
Phenol is an aromatic organic compound which is widely used as a precursor or an intermediate in the chemical industry. Represented by the chemical formula C6H5OH, phenol is similar to alcohols as the phenyl group (C6H5) in it is bonded to a hydroxyl group (OH). The stronger hydrogen bonding in phenol enhances its solubility and results in a higher melting and boiling point compared to other hydrocarbons with similar molecular weight. Phenol was first isolated from coal tars in the 1850's and is currently produced by the oxidation of cumene. This process is advantageous over other production processes such as the Dow process as it gives another valuable industrial chemical- acetone.
Phenol is used in the production of a number of chemicals like- bisphenol-A (BPA), phenolic resins, caprolactam, alkylphenols, aniline, 2,6-xylenol, etc. The first three derivatives- bisphenol-A (BPA), phenolic resins and caprolactam currently consume the majority of its total global production. BPA end applications include automotive parts, optical media, glazing/sheeting, etc. Phenolic resins are primarily used as a binder or coating for oriented strand boards (OSB) or for plywood. In addition, they are used for circuit boards as well as molded products. Caprolactam, the third biggest derivative of phenol is used in textiles, carpets, engineered plastics, packaging and industrial filament applications. Another major factor driving the global phenol market is the rising demand for wind turbines with their blades made up of epoxy resins that are derived from phenol.
China is currently both the biggest producer and consumer of phenol and its production capacity has increased exponentially in recent years. The major players in the global phenol industry include: Ineos, Mitsui Chemicals, Cepsa Quimica, Kumho P & B Chemicals, LG Chemicals, Chang Chun PC, etc. Looking forward, we expect the global phenol market to grow at a CAGR of around 4% during 2015-2020.
