Nonylphenol Market Analysis: At present, the demand for nonylphenol in my country is about 300 tons

Published Date: 2023-01-17
Nonylphenol is an important fine chemical raw material and intermediate. It is a colorless or light yellow liquid at room temperature with a slight phenol smell. It is insoluble in water but soluble in acetone. Mainly used in the production of surfactants, but also in antioxidants, textile printing and dyeing auxiliaries, lubricating oil additives, pesticide emulsifiers, resin modifiers, resin and rubber stabilizers and other fields.


Nonylphenol ethoxylate is a very important non-ionic surfactant, which will undergo deethoxylation reaction in the natural environment to generate nonylphenols.


Nonylphenol is used in the production of surfactants, antioxidants, textile printing and dyeing auxiliaries, lubricating oil additives, pesticide emulsifiers, resin modifiers, resin and rubber stabilizers.


In the building materials industry, nonylphenol ethoxylates are used in water-based paints to emulsify, disperse and wetting; when used in concrete air-entraining agents, they can form a large number of microcells in cement mortar or concrete, improving its ease and Sex, water retention, improve the frost resistance and impermeability of concrete. At present, the demand for nonylphenol in my country's building materials industry is about 300 tons, and the demand is expected to be nearly 500 tons, mainly due to the large potential demand for water-based paints. The consumption of nonylphenol in pesticide emulsifiers in my country is about 2,000 tons per year, and it is estimated that this level will remain at this level or increase slightly in the future. Nonylphenol ethoxylates are also used in petroleum demulsifiers and leather processing aids. The former has an annual demand of about 1,200 tons, equivalent to 400 tons of nonylphenol, and the latter has a demand of nearly 1,000 tons, equivalent to more than 300 tons of nonylphenol. It is expected that the demand for demulsifier and leather auxiliary p-nonylphenol will reach 600 tons and 400 tons respectively.


Mainly used in the production of non-ionic surfactants, lubricating oil additives, oil-soluble phenolic resins and insulating materials, textile printing and dyeing, papermaking additives, rubber, plastic anti-aging and antioxidant TNP, antistatic ABPS, oil field and refinery chemicals, Cleaning and dispersing agent for petroleum products and flotation selection agent for copper ore and rare metals, also used in antioxidants, textile printing and dyeing auxiliaries, lubricating oil additives, pesticide emulsifiers, resin modifiers, resin and rubber stabilizers, etc. Ethylene oxide condensing agent is used to make non-ionic surfactants, which are used as detergents, emulsifiers, dispersants, wetting agents, etc., and further processed into sulfate esters and phosphate esters to make anionic surfactants. It is also used to make descaling agent, antistatic agent, foaming agent, etc.


Nonylphenol in my country is mainly used to produce nonionic surfactants and modified phenolic resins, and a small amount is used to produce anionic surfactants and other products. The annual demand is about 30,000 tons. It is estimated that the market demand will increase by 8% annually during the Ninth Five-Year Plan period, and the demand will reach 45,000 tons.

According to Hengzhou Primus, nonylphenol polyoxyethylene ether as a nonionic surfactant has been widely used in detergents, textiles, pesticides, coatings, leather, building materials, papermaking and other industries in China. In terms of synthetic detergents, it is widely used to produce composite washing powder or liquid detergent and super-concentrated washing powder due to its good washing performance. It is added at 1% in compound laundry detergent, 10% in liquid detergent, and 15% in super-concentrated laundry detergent. The total demand for nonylphenol polyoxyethylene ether for synthetic detergents in my country is about 65,000 tons, equivalent to about 21,000 tons of nonylphenol. It is estimated that nearly 100,000 tons of nonylphenol polyoxyethylene ether will be needed in 2001, equivalent to about 33,000 tons of nonylphenol.


In terms of textile detergents, my country's nonylphenol polyoxyethylene ether is mainly used for washing worsted and woolen woolen fabrics. The demand is about 4500t, which is equivalent to 1500t nonylphenol. It is estimated that 1,800 tons of nonylphenol will be needed. In pulp and papermaking, nonylphenol polyoxyethylene ether is used as an excellent auxiliary agent for alkali extraction and deresinization of pulp, which can enhance alkali penetration and promote resin dispersion; as a low-foaming detergent and dispersant for papermaking, it can make paper The product is smooth and even. In addition, nonylphenol polyoxyethylene ether is also used to remove waste newspaper ink. In my country's pulp and paper industry, about 600 tons of nonylphenol polyoxyethylene ether is needed, which is equivalent to 200 tons of nonylphenol. It is expected that about 300 tons of nonylphenol will be needed.


In the electronics industry, nonylphenol is mainly used to produce modified phenolic resins in advanced laminates for electronic circuits. Its demand for nonylphenol is growing, the demand is about 2,000 tons, and it is expected to reach 3,000 tons.


In my country, nonylphenol is also used in the production of barium salt lubricating oil additives for internal combustion engines, with an annual consumption of about 1,000 tons.
