Top 30 Fragrance Chemicals Used in Perfumery Based on approximately 800 popular fragrance formulations used in soaps, detergents, toiletries, household products, incense sticks, perfumes, etc., we have been able to provide provisional global usage data. A synthetic chemical used in perfumery.

The market figures for incense sticks and incense sticks are not yet clear. The market statistics of fragrance consumption in regions such as the Middle East, Africa, some Asian regions are also unclear. Therefore, the figures below give some idea of the global consumption of the top thirty chemicals used in perfumery.

We have also taken into account the global consumption of raw materials used in manufacturing these products.

We did not consider terpenes like alpha-pinene, limonene etc. which are directly used in perfumes.

We have taken into account fixatives and mixing ingredients as they are a major contributor to fragrance creation.

About 40 percent of these are also used in chemical flavoring. Some chemicals such as vanillin, menthol, eugenol, limonene, esters of lower alcohols, esters of lower fatty acids are as abundant as the chemicals listed below, but 80% of their global consumption goes to flavorings. So we cannot include them in the top thirty aromatic chemicals.

The following chemicals are manufactured from raw materials, which are produced from petrochemical sources or natural sources. Some of the products below are also used in polymers, drugs, pesticides, etc. Therefore, the global consumption of such chemicals is much higher than shown below.
