Format: Online | Last Updated: Aug 2021

[Online Quarterly Update]Global Iso Propyl Alcohol (IPA) demand stood at 2.98 Million Tonnes in 2020 and is forecast to reach 5.19 Million Tonnes by 2030, growing at a healthy CAGR of 6.02% until 2030. The sudden onset of the global pandemic COVID-19 has caused demand for hand sanitizers to skyrocket in the international market, leading to huge demand for Iso Propyl Alcohol. Moreover, rapid industrialization and infrastructural investments across major economies are further likely to create a strong demand for IPA from 2021-2030.
IPA is a clear colorless liquid easily miscible with water, ethanol, ethers, and other solvents. IPA production can happen through three routes, viz., indirect hydration of Propylene, direct hydration of Propylene and catalytic hydrogenation of Acetone. While Propylene-based IPA remains the most used production process in the current market scenario, Acetone-based IPA is being phased out gradually. LG Chem Ltd. is the only Acetone-based IPA manufacturer in the world. Among various grades of IPA available, Industrial grade IPA accounted for the highest share in 2019 as consumption of solvents and chemical intermediates took an upswing during the year. Being highly evaporative and extremely safe, IPA is also used for sterilization application in healthcare and pharma sector. Increasing purchasing power of consumers would create a need for higher consumption of IPA and IPA-based derivatives in cosmetics and personal care products. Even the electronics segment uses IPA as a cleanser and is likely to register a record growth during the forecast period as technology penetration in developing countries would rise substantially. Some players have gone for capacity expansions to accommodate for the sudden surge in IPA demand in the US and Asia-Pacific. IPA consumption is reportedly the highest in North America. However, APAC region was the fastest-growing region among all. IPA’s multi-faceted application across several industries is expected to push demand for the product to unprecedented levels during the forecast period.
