Prospects for Russian Aniline Production and Market

Aniline is an important intermediate product for organic synthesis with a broad range of uses. Global consumption in 2012 exceeded 5m tonnes. Our interested readers can find in the present article data on the global structure of aniline applications, the analogous data on India and Russia, changes in aniline production at Volzhsky Orgsintez (Volzhsky, Volgograd region) (the panorama of the latter is on the photo above) and Khimprom JSC (Novocheboksarsk, Chuvash Republic) as well as aggregated information about Russian aniline output in 1997-2013.

The article highlighted changes and geographical breakdown of Russian С6Н5NH2 imports as well as dynamics of the country’s consumption of this chemical. It is shown that aniline prices have been growing steadily over the past four years.

Nevertheless, outlooks for Russian aniline production and market, according to the authors, are vague, which is due to some deficit of a raw material – benzene in the country, a possible ban on the usage of monomethyl aniline in petrol production and the radical difference between the aniline consumption structure in Russia and that in the world. In this connection, the authors consider diverse possibilities of the development of the Russian aniline market.
