The new report by Procurement Resource, a global procurement research and consulting firm, looks in-depth into the costs involved in the production of cyclohexane. The comprehensive report analyses the production cost of the material, covering raw material costs and co-product credit, equipment costs, land and site costs, labour wages, maintenance costs, financing charges, and the depreciation cost. The extensive study describes the step-wise consumption of material and utilities, along with a detailed process flow diagram. The report also assesses the latest developments within the cyclohexane industry that might influence the costs of production, looking into the capacity expansions, plant turnarounds, and mergers, acquisitions, and investments.

Cyclohexane is a colourless liquid that smells like petroleum. It is an alicyclic hydrocarbon, which comprises a ring of six carbon atoms. Cyclohexane is also a cycloalkane and a highly volatile organic compound. It is used to manufacture nylon as a paint remover, as a solvent, and as a raw material for other chemicals. Cyclohexane also acts as a non-polar organic solvent and a recrystallisation solvent.

The cyclohexane industry has been witnessing a lowered downstream demand in 2020 due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. The cyclohexane industry has its inventories filled for the second quarter of the year due to lower demand in the first quarter of 2020. The inventories were further filled to take advantage of the cheap prices. Europe and the United States shipped the exports to Asia due to the large difference in feedstock benzene prices. The primary demand for cyclohexane was created in the packaging and textiles industries during the pandemic, but it was not enough to offset the fall in demand. Due to the pandemic, the usual demand for cyclohexane from the automotive and chemical industries witnessed a decline. These factors are expected to influence the production cost of cyclohexane.
