Aniline is an aromatic amine. It is used as a precursor to several chemicals, which are employed in a wide range of industrial applications. A major portion of the aniline produced globally is utilized in the manufacture of methylene diphenyl diisocyanate (MDI). MDI is used as an intermediate to manufacture rigid and flexible polyurethane (PU) foams, elastomers, coatings, adhesives and sealants. Aniline is also an important ingredient in several rubber processing chemicals such as 4-aminodiphenylamine. MDI produced using aniline as a precursor is used in applications such as insulation, furnishings, consumer goods, packaging, and automotive interiors & upholstery. The global market for aniline is driven largely by the industrial end-uses. Asia Pacific and Rest of the World are expected to dominate the aniline market during the forecast period; these regions are anticipated to witness significant industrial growth in the next few years. A large number of aniline manufacturing firms operate in China. Key players in this market are fully integrated in terms of aniline manufacturing.
