Historical Analysis (2016 to 2020) Vs Future Projections (2021 to 2031) for Dibenzyl Toluene Demand

According to Fact.MR, over the past half-decade, global volume consumption of dibenzyl toluene increased at a CAGR of around 2.4% and reached around 10 KT, of which, DBT as a heat transfer fluid accounted for around 4/7 of total consumption. Advanced properties of dibenzyl toluene such as its efficient cooling and high temperature-resistant properties allowed it to play a notable role in LOHC (Liquid Organic Hydrogen Carrier) systems.

Attributed to technological advancements of dibenzyl toluene in recent years, positive growth of around 2.9% CAGR is being projected for the APEJ region over the forecast period. Further, use of dibenzyl toluene in petrochemicals is expected to expand 1.4X by 2031-end.

Moreover, use of DBT used in the plastics and rubber industry is expected to cover significant volume of global consumption, standing at around 1.7 KT.

However, the COVID-19 pandemic had an impact on revenue generation capability of companies as production facilities were shut down and the demand-supply chain was affected. As such, a dip in value of DBT consumption and production was witnessed across the market landscape.

An Adaptive Approach to Modern-day Research Needs

Category-wise Analysis

Which End Use of Dibenzyl Toluene is Being Targeted by Manufacturers?

Research & development on DBT has proven it to be a promising material for hydrogen transportation. A single molecule of DBT can absorb 9 molecules of hydrogen. Moreover, it also offers increasing safety owing to its high-flame resistance, and non-toxic & non-explosive properties.

Furthermore, DBT works as a multiphase flow to release hydrogen back to the desired location, which portrays a clear picture of safe hydrogen transfer through the DBT LOHC method.

Hydrogenious has put up an experimental site Stuttgart, Germany, as a display to demonstrate DBT and its exhaustive list of abilities and safety provisions while transferring hydrogen at longer distances. European countries are looking for feasibility on the adoption of LOHC for the transportation of hydrogen to plants.

Mandating the use of the LOHC technique for the supply of hydrogen in the near future is set to drive demand for DBT.

DBT is projected to provide a notable absolute $ opportunity of US$ 4.7 Mn in the petrochemicals industry while expanding at a CAGR of around 3.4% over the decade.

Which Application of Dibenzyl Toluene is Anticipated to Dominate Global Revenue Share?

DBT is commercially used as a heat transfer fluid under the trade name Marlotherm, supplied and manufactured by Sasol. DBT has been extensively used as a heat transfer fluid over the past two decades owing to its high performance at exceptional temperature in Industries.

DBT is commonly used in heat transfer equipment in pharmaceutical, plastic, rubber, and other specialty chemical industries. DBT can withstand temperatures ranging from 0 degrees C to 350 degrees C.

More than 15 metric tons, on an average, is charged into industries as heat transfer fluids. Moreover, its properties such as limited product decomposition, high flash point, low cold viscosity during shutdowns, ease of oil handling, and a bunch of other properties makes DBT a promising material for usage in chemical manufacturing plants.

Majority of users have shifted the demand curve of DBT. Moreover, increase in supply is also observed in the production of Arkema, Sasol (Eastman) and other companies, owing to increases demand for dibenzyl toluene.

Dibenzyl toluene is widely known for its lightweight and heat resistance features. These features are highly embraced by the petrochemical industry. The level of DBT utilization in the petrochemical industry will increase 1.5X to 2X by the end of 2031, which will aid manufacturers in boosting their product reach.
