The major use of Benzaldehyde is in organic synthesis where the key raw materials for the production of a number of aromatic & perfumery chemicals and aldehydes including cinnamic, methylcinnamic, amylcinnamic and hexylcinnamic. The two commercially available manufacturing process of Benzaldehyde include the hydrolysis of benzal chloride and air oxidation of toluene. The air oxidation of toluene process for benzaldehyde production is an energy and engineering intensive process. Majority of the global production is done via the air oxidation of toluene, however the process requires high pressure and temperature conditions and produces by-products. The higher energy requirements are not offset by raw materials which are relatively inexpensive, making it a cost intensive manufacturing costs.

The key driving factor for the global Benzaldehyde market is the growing utilization of Benzaldehyde in flavor & fragrance. The other key industry is the agrochemical industry where Benzaldehyde is used in the production of intermediates for pesticides. The global population is on the rise and could almost double until 2050. With the available technologies, the modern agriculture feeds over seven billion. With the fast depleting non-renewable resources and climate changes, the necessity for a change in agriculture manufacturing practice rises. Increasing yield using sustainable solutions is a major challenge in the sector of agriculture. The market has experienced merger & acquisitions. DSM Special Products, BV, subsidiary of the Netherlands based DSM and manufacturer of benzoic acid, sodium benzoate, benzaldehyde and benzyl alcohol was acquired by Emerald Performance Materials, LLC. Secondly, Lanxess acquired the benzaldehyde and other derivatives manufacturing facility of Gwalior Chemicals.
