As per Technavio, the shifting of manufacturing units to developing countries will have a positive impact on the market and contribute to its growth significantly over the forecast period. This research report also analyzes other significant trends and market drivers that will influence market growth over 2020-2024.

Benzyl Alcohol Market: Shifting of Manufacturing Units to Developing Countries

Stringent government regulations in developed countries have led vendors to shift their production units to developing countries where the use of benzyl alcohol is approved by regulatory authorities. The benzyl alcohol market in APAC is witnessing high growth because of an increasing number of applications across various sectors and government approvals. Compared with APAC, regulations on the use of benzyl alcohol in the EU are more stringent. Improved international trade and ease of business because of favorable government regulations have increased growth opportunities for the benzyl alcohol market vendors in developing countries such as India, China, and Japan.

"Factors such as the role of benzyl alcohol as a preservative and flavoring agent, and the growing number of government-driven, large-scale infrastructure projects will have a significant impact on the growth of the benzyl alcohol market value during the forecast period," says a senior analyst at Technavio.
