Additionally, the increasing usages of DCBA materials in agricultural activities led by the rising demand for quality crop production are predicted to drive market

The global market for 2, 4-dichlorobenzyl alcohol is witnessing a spurting rise recently, mainly due to the coronavirus outbreak. Rising usages of DCBA substrates in the treatment or prevention of viral infections caused by SARS-associated coronavirus acts as a key driving force for the market growth. Moreover, growth in the rapidly growing end-use industries of DCBA, such as pharmaceutical, agriculture, cosmetics personal care, and general industries accelerates the market growth.

According to Market Research Future (MRFR), the global 2, 4-dichlorobenzyl alcohol market is poised to witness significant growth by 2023, registering an impressive CAGR during the forecast period (2017–2023). Increasing incidences of chronic disease push the consumption of DCBA in the pharmaceutical industry to develop breakthrough medicines. Also, advances in active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) manufacturing technology, alongside the growing urbanization worldwide, foster the growth of the market.

Additionally, the increasing usages of DCBA materials in agricultural activities led by the rising demand for quality crop production are predicted to drive market growth during the forecast period. Moreover, increasing awareness among farmers about the benefits of insecticide on crop yield is estimated to fuel the growth of the market. Also, the massive absorption of DCBA by the prominent end-use industries would help the market to grow at a steady pace.

Industry/ Innovation/ Related News: 

February 24, 2020 ---- BMC Research Notes (the UK), a research organization supporting all scientific and clinical disciplines, announced that one of its group of scientists presented findings of the study on Bactericidal activity of hexylresorcinol lozenges to fight oropharyngeal organisms associated with an acute sore throat. The team concluded that that hexylresorcinol lozenges offer rapid relief in organisms implicated in acute sore throat.

In a similar in vitro study, scientists reported that lozenges containing 0.6 mg amylmetacresol (AMC) and 1.2 mg 2,4-dichlorobenzyl alcohol show antibacterial activity against a similar range of oropharyngeal organisms associated with the acute sore throat. Acute sore throat is a common symptom in an upper respiratory tract infection (URTI) related to inflammation of the pharynx, tonsils, or nasopharynx.

The present invention indicates the use of formulations of DCBA and amylmetacresol in the treatment or prevention of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS), a viral respiratory illness caused by a novel coronavirus, termed as SARS-associated coronavirus (SARS-CoV). The pharmaceutical composition comprising 2,4-dichlorobenzyl alcohol and amylmetacresol can be used in the treatment prevention of viral infections caused by SARS-associated coronavirus.
