Global aroma chemicals market by terpenes

A variety of plants, mainly Cannabis sativa and insects synthesize terpenes.”
Global aroma chemicals market by benzenoids
Benzenoids accounted for a share of 34.5% in the global aroma chemicals market in 2016. The market for benzenoids is growing significantly owing to their commercial importance. These compounds contain a benzene ring with functional groups such as alcohols, ketones, aldehydes, acetates, and esters.
Benzaldehyde is used in perfumery, hairspray, laundry bleach, detergents, personal care products such as body lotions, shaving cream, shampoo, and other products. Benzyl salicylate has a slightly sweet, balsamic odor and is used for producing floral fragrances such as wallflower, carnation, lilac, and valley of lily. Benzyl acetate and benzyl alcohol are used in perfumes, cologne, shampoo, air freshener, laundry bleach and detergent, body lotion, after shave lotion, and other products.
Global aroma chemicals market by musk chemicals
Musk chemicals accounted for a share of 12.7% in the global aroma chemicals market in 2016. These chemicals are widely used in perfumery and are obtained from sources such as animals (mainly musk deer), plants with similar fragrances, and other artificial substances.
