The global Butyl Glycol market stood around 840 thousand tonnes in 2021 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.92% during the forecast period until 2035.
Butyl Glycol is an organic solvent with a chemical formula of C6H14O2. Ethylene oxide reacts with alcohol like butanol in the presence of a catalyst to form butyl glycol. This process is known as ethoxylation. Butyl Glycol appears as a colorless liquid and is miscible with water and other solvents. Butyl Glycol has low volatility making it a popular solvent in the paint industry. Other applications of butyl Glycol include usage as an ingredient of drilling and cutting oils, inks, cleaners, resins, lubricants, production of butyl glycol acetate, and as a precursor for producing plasticizers.
The primary market driving factor for the Butyl Glycol market is the production of paints coatings, and inks. Because of the advantageous properties of Butyl Glycol, including low volatility and high miscibility, butyl glycol is being used in a variety of paint and coating applications as a solvent and coupling agent. It is widely used in the production of paints to speed up drying time and ensures smooth coat of the paint on the surface. In 2021, the Paints Coatings & Inks industry consumed about 50% of the total Butyl Glycol market. With rapid industrialization, the demand of paints and coatings for architectural applications is anticipated to swell the demand of Butyl Glycol in the forecast period. The total global Butyl Glycol market demand is expected to reach around 1400 thousand tonnes by 2035 with a CAGR of 3.92%.
Based on region, Asia Pacific dominates as a consumer across the globe. The Butyl Glycol demand by the Asia Pacific. High demand for items like paints and coatings due to rapidly expanding building activities and future significant infrastructure projects in developing countries situated in Asia is anticipated to soar the Butyl Glycol demand in this region. Europe also stands as one of the biggest consumers of Butyl Glycol Moreover, the demand for Butyl Glycol is expected to rise in South America in the forecast period.
Based on the end-user industry, the global Butyl Glycol market is segmented into Paints Coatings & Inks, Intermediate Chemicals, Detergent, Lubricants, and others. The Paints Coatings & Inks industry is dominating the Butyl Glycol market and is anticipated to grow further. The need for butyl glycol in this segment is being driven by an increase in the demand for paints & coatings for a variety of applications across numerous end-use industries, including automotive, construction, industrial, and others. Another significant consumer of Butyl Glycol global market is the Intermediate Chemicals industry, whose consumption of Butyl Glycol is anticipated to double by the forecast period. The Lubricant Sector is expected to soar in the forecast period.
