Nitrobenzene Market Size – USD 9.64 Billion in 2020, Growth - CAGR of 3.2%, Trends – The rising demand for Nitrobenzene in the Agriculture sector

The Global Nitrobenzene Market is forecast to reach USD 12.28 Billion by 2028, according to a new report by Reports and Data. Nitrobenzene can be defined as an organic compound that is considered to be an important industrial. It is produced in large quantities for industrial uses like in the automotive sector and construction industry. A large portion of the organic compound manufactured in the United States is used to produce aniline. It is also applicable for producing lubricating oils like those applied in machinery and motors. A certain portion of this compound is also used to produce drugs, dyes, synthetic rubber, and pesticides. A large percentage of this compound is used for the production of aniline that is a precursor to pesticides, rubber chemicals, dyes, pharmaceuticals, and explosives. It has been testified that reduced graphene oxide catalyzed reduction of the compound forms N-phenylhydroxylamine as an intermediate. While working with the compound, it is important to take necessary precautions as it is toxic. Though the compound has a good aroma, it is good to inhale, ingest, or expose the skin to it. Commercially, it can be used to cover unpleasant odors, but only when the product is not made for animal or human use. It is because of the toxicity of the compound, it is usually not used directly in its original form, and rather it is used as a precursor to other compounds. It has a wide arena of applications ranging from pharmaceutical to agrochemicals, which is fostering the growth of the sector.
