Butane is a highly inflammable, odorless, and colorless gas that is made up of carbon and hydrogen. It is most commonly used as fuel in cigarette lighters and butane torches. Butane torches are used in glass making and can be mixed with other products to make LPG. It can be used as fuel for vehicles. The purest form of butane can be used as a refrigerant in household refrigerators and freezers. It has replaced derivatives of methane, which cause depletion of the ozone layer. Due to increasing use of butane in different applications, the butane market is expected to experience tremendous market growth in the forthcoming years.

The major regions analyzed under this research study are North America, Asia-Pacific, Europe, and the Rest of the World.
