Format: Online | Last Updated: Nov 2021

[Online Quarterly Update] The Ethyl Acetate Market has shown significant growth as it reached 3.2 million tonnes in 2020 and is projected to achieve a healthy global CAGR of 4.50% during the forecast period 2022-2030. Ethyl Acetate with the molecular formula C4H8O2 is an organic ester compound. It is a colorless and flammable liquid that has a sweet fruity smell. Ethyl Acetate, also known as Ethyl Ethanoate, is an important commodity chemical used for numerous industrial and commercial applications. It is primarily used as solvents and diluents especially for paints, cleaning mixtures, coatings, adhesives, varnishes, lacquers, and perfumes.
 Ethyl ethanoate is extensively utilized as a component of nail polish removers and lacquer thinners. In laboratories, Ethyl Acetate solvent is commonly used in column and thin-layer chromatography. It is manufactured by the esterification of Ethanol and Acetic acid, and catalytic condensation of Acetaldehyde with Alkoxides. Although, it naturally occurs in fruits, where it is responsible for the taste and smell of the fruit.
 On the basis of end-user industries, the global Ethyl Acetate market is segmented into paints and coatings, food and beverages, automotive, construction, packaging, and others. The paints and coatings industry dominates the global demand for the chemical as it is extensively used in paints as an activator and hardener. The surging demand for Ethyl Acetate by the paints and coatings industry is likely to flourish in the forecast period as well owing to increasing construction activities across the globe. As Ethyl Acetate is environmentally safe and acceptable for food applications like decaffeinating tea and coffee and artificial flavor enhancer in confectionery items, its demand in the food and beverage industry is expected to boost in the future. The initiatives of the government to construct commercial buildings, such as hotels and resorts, in emerging economies are boosting the demand for floor coatings, which will further augment the global market in upcoming years. Exponentially growing demand for Ethyl Acetate solvents by the packaging industries to manufacture flexographic and rotogravure inks will accelerate the global Ethyl Acetate market in the next few years. Owing to the robust demand for Ethyl Acetate by the pharmaceutical industry is expected to drive the market of Ethyl Acetate across the globe until 2030.
During the COVID-19, in 2020, the Ethyl Acetate market witnessed a negative impact across the globe. Several industries including paint and coatings, construction, aerospace, and others were severely affected due to interruptions in the global supply chain of the chemical. During the first half of 2020, there was a major decline in the demand for Ethyl Acetate solvents as several manufacturing units halted their operations temporarily. Once the restrictions imposed by the government are uplifted, major end-user industries including paints and coating, and flexible packaging, will boost the demand for Ethyl Acetate across the globe by the end of the year. 
Region-wise, the Asia Pacific region dominates the global demand for the Ethyl Acetate and is anticipated to maintain its dominance in the forecast period until 2030. Rapidly growing urbanization and income levels in emerging economies like China and India are driving the dominance of the market in the Asia Pacific region. Rising construction activities in the Asia Pacific will further boost the demand for Ethyl Acetate in the near future.
