N-butanol is an important feedstock for the manufacturing of butyl acrylate, butyl acetate, glycol ethers, and plasticizers. These chemicals are further used in water-based coatings, cosmetics, lacquers, car care products, and textiles. N-butanol is also used as a direct solvent in paints, coatings, and for other industrial purposes.

The Middle East is expected to be a big market in the near future mainly due to focused efforts by the government to attract various chemical and petrochemical companies. The demand for n-butanol is projected to be driven by growing end-application markets. The demand for n-butanol is further driven by solvents applications particularly in emulsion and lacquers business.

This study estimates the global market of n-butanol by the end of 2020. This market research study provides detailed qualitative and quantitative analysis of the global n-butanol market. It also provides a comprehensive review of major market drivers, restraints, opportunities, challenges, and key issues in the market.

The market is segmented and forecast for major geographic regions, North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Rest of the World. Competitive scenario READ MORE >

The global n-butanol industry is witnessing high growth because of increasing end-use industries, technological advancements, and growing demand in the Asia-Pacific region. The demand-production gap in China and rising investment in Saudi Arabia’s downstream sector are some of the key opportunities for n-butanol manufacturers. Growth in the paints & coating industry is one of the major drivers for this market. Increasing use of n-butanol in direct solvent applications is further driving the market globally.

Butyl acrylate was one of the highest consumed n-butanol applications in 2014. Growing end-use industries in emerging nations such as China, and India and growing paints & coatings industry are some of the drivers for the n-butanol market. N-butanol applications such as direct solvent, butyl acrylate, butyl acetate are expected to show high growth in the forecast period.

The global market for n-butanol grew significantly during the past few years, and is expected to grow even at more rapid pace in the next five years, driven mainly by growing demand from the Asia-Pacific region. The Middle East is expected to be a big market in the near future mainly due to focused efforts by the government to attract various chemical and petrochemical companies. The demand for n-butanol is further projected to be driven by growing markets of its applications such as butyl acrylates, plasticizers, glycol ethers, solvents, and others.

This report follows both top-down and bottom-up approaches to estimate and forecast the global market size. Competitive scenarios of the key players in the n-butanol market have been discussed in detail. We have also profiled the leading players of this industry with their recent developments and other strategic industry activities.
