1,4-Dichlorobenzene is an organic compound with formula C6H4Cl2, also known as p-DCB, 1,4-DCB, or para-dichlorobenzene. It is used as a pesticide in the form of mothballs. Its solubility in water is low. It is used to control insect incursion in crops. It is used as a fumigant for clothes & for ant control. Industrially, it is used to prevent leather & other fabrics from mold or mildew attack. Furthermore, it is used as a raw material to manufacture polyphenylene sulfide (PPS) resins. Its vapors are toxic to mildews, insects, and molds. Additionally, it is used as an intermediate for manufacturing of other chemicals for instance 1, 2 ,4-trichlorobenzene and in resin bonded abrasives. It is used as an insect repellant for nectarines, cherries, apricots, plums and other fruits. It controls soil diseases, root aphids, potato weevil, peach tree borer, wire worms and other insects. It is commercially available in an oil suspension form which is applied at the base of trees especially for peach tree borer control. PPS resin is one of the most significant applications of p-DCB. It is known by brand names such as paracide, paramoth and para crystals and is used to deodorize restrooms & waste bins. It is a high temperature thermoplastic and possesses numerous properties for instance heat resistance, alkalis, abrasion, resistance to acids, bleaches and sunlight.
According to study, “World 1,4-Dichlorobenzene Market Research Report 2024(covering USA, EU, China, South East Asia, Japan and etc)” the key companies operating in the world 1,4-dichlorobenzene market are PPG, Pengyu Jiangsu, Yangnong Jiangsu, Dacheng Shandong, Haichen, Sumitomo Chemical, Bayer, Nanhua Sinopec, Monsanto, Fenghuangdao Yangzhou, Kureha, ABI Chemicals, Alfa Aesar, Angene, AK Scientific, Apollo Scientific Ltd, Conier Chem, GFS Chemicals, Finetech Industry, Dalian Haokang Electronic Technology Co., Ltd, Hangzhou Uniwise International Co., Ltd, J and K Scientific, Hengyang KT Chemical Co., Ltd, Merck Millipore, Sigma – Aldrich, TCI and Tractus Co.

Based on product type, 1,4-dichlorobenzene market is segmented into CP purity is more than 99.0% and GR’s purity is more than 99.9%. Based on application, market is segmented into PPS resin, deodorizer, insecticide and others. In addition, based on end-use industries, market is segmented into medical industry and chemical industry. The chemical segment is estimated to be the fastest-growing segment owing to rise in adoption of chlorobenzene in the production of agrochemicals over the forecast period.
The 1,4-dichlorobenzene market is driven by growth of pest management industry, followed by increase in demand for specialty membranes & coil boilers and rise in use of room furnishing agents in hospitality industry, retail spaces, household applications and commercial spaces. However, rise in environmental pollution may impact the market. Moreover, rise in production of bio-based 1, 4 dichlorobenzene is a key opportunity for market.
Based on geography, China country holds major share in1,4-dichlorobenzene market owing to growth in agriculture sectors, and rise in population in the country. USA and EU are expected to witness substantial growth due to rise in innovative technologies and presence of key vendors over the forecast period. It is projected that future of the market will be bright on account of rise in disposable income, increase in economy, high demand for chemical-based products, and advancements in technologies during the forecast period.
