Resorcinol is a chemical compound belonging to the “alcohol” family. It is also known as m-dihydroxybenzene. It is a very versatile compound and has great chemical stability, being resistant to solvents, salt water, oil and even acids. It has very good adhesive and binding properties and is also a great absorber of UV radiation. When added to rubber, it increases the modulus of elasticity of the rubber while having no effect on the process of vulcanization. It is also used in the manufacturing of UV absorbers.It’s excellent adhesive properties and chemical stability make it a great fit for use in wood applications for making wood waterproof and for giving it a smooth surface along with a stronger structure.


Resorcinol is used extensively in the manufacturing of tires. So, it finds applications in the bicycle, aircraft and automotive tire manufacturing. It is also widely used for wood bonding applications in the manufacturing of fluorescent and leather dyes.It is used for protecting plastics from UV radiation. It also has a lot of applicationsin the skincare industry like acne creams, fungicidal creams, sunscreen and anti-dandruff shampoos. It is also used in the manufacturing of a lot of substances like flame retardants and elastomers.

Market Dynamics

A key driver of the demand for resorcinol is the growing demand for rubber products in the tire industry. Due to its favourable properties, its use in value-added paints, dye productsand coatings is increasing. Non-halogenated flame retardants are becoming increasingly popular due to their non-toxic and environment-friendly nature. Resorcinol is used in their production and so, this is also a key driver of resorcinol demand. Also, awareness about the properties of resorcinol is growing and a lot of new industries are coming up which.These factors are also leading to its increasing usage in industries.
The handling of resorcinol poses a lot of serious issues as it is toxic in nature and causes skin and eye irritation. Therefore, it is also subjected to a lot of government regulations related to its disposal. These are the important factors that are limiting the boom in the resorcinol market.

Market Segmentation

The resorcinol market can be segmented on the basis of applications. The segments are-
• Tire and rubber manufacturing
• Non-halogenic flame retardants
• UV products and dyes
• Wood adhesives and binders
The tire and rubber manufacturing segment holds the largest share of the resorcinol market and demand in this segment will grow further with the increasing demand in the automobile sector. The non-halogenic flame retardants segment is also forecasted to grow fast because of the increasing importance given to sustainability.

Regional/Geographic Analysis

The Asia-Pacific resorcinol market is currently the largest in the world. Tire manufacturing is expected to boom in countries like China and so it is expected that the Asia-Pacific region will hold the largest share of the global resorcinol market even in 2022. Due to steady growth in the furniture industry in Western and Eastern Europe, the resorcinol market in these 2 regions is also expected to grow substantially.

Key Players

Some of the major players in the market includeKraeber& Co Gmbh, Mitsui Chemicals Inc, Akrochem Corporation, Haihang Industry and Atul Limited.
