The global oxo-alcohol market size reached US$ 12.9 Billion in 2022. Looking forward, the publisher expects the market to reach US$ 21.9 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 9.1% during 2023-2028.

Oxo-alcohol is a chemical compound prepared by reacting olefins with syngas at low pressure in the presence of a rhodium catalyst. It includes Isobutanol (IBA), N-Butanol (NBA), and 2-Ethylhexanol (2-EH), which are widely used as solvents and chemical intermediates in manufacturing adhesives, surfactants, paints, coatings, plasticizers, acetates, printing inks, and ethers. Besides this, it finds extensive applications in manufacturing acrylates, which are extensively utilized in the textile, packaging, and automotive industries.

Oxo-Alcohol Market Trends:

Rapid industrialization and the expansion of manufacturing plants are among the key factors catalyzing the demand for oxo-alcohols across the globe. In addition, the growing global population is resulting in rising construction activities, which, in turn, is increasing the need for plasticizers formulated with oxo-alcohols. Apart from this, oxo-alcohols are extensively used in preparing polyvinyl chloride (PVC) products, which are further employed in different industry verticals on account of their enhanced versatility, flexibility, and durability. For instance, it is employed in the cosmetics industry to formulate fragrances, skincare, and hair care products. Additionally, the growing demand for high-quality lubrication systems in the automotive industry is positively influencing the market. Oxo-alcohols are used as dispersants and synthesis intermediates to synthesize lubricants for machinery and automobiles. Besides this, the widespread adoption of oxo-alcohols in synthesizing coatings to prevent blushing when drying in humid conditions and improve flow, gloss, and resistance is strengthening the market growth. The rising use of these chemicals in the pharmaceutical and agricultural sectors is driving the market. Furthermore, the increasing applications of 2-Ethylhexanol as feedstock on account of its flexibility, lower emissions, good adhesion, and fuel performance enhancement properties are stimulating the market growth. Moreover, rising funds by leading market players in research and development (R&D) activities to introduce more efficient variants of oxo-alcohols, are anticipated to propel the market growth.
