The India Iso Butanol Market Has Reached Approximately 70 Thousand Tonnes in Fy2022 and is Expected to Grow at a Steady CAGR 5.67% by Fy2035

The India Iso Butanol market has reached approximately 70 thousand tonnes in FY2022 and is expected to grow at a steady CAGR 5.67% by FY2035. A new n-butanol plant by Indian Oil Corporation Limited (IOCL) is expected to be commissioned by FY2024, with an annual capacity of 90 KTPA and iso-butanol will be produced as a by-product with a capacity of around 2.57 KTPA,

Iso Butanol is a valuable organic compound with the formula (CH₃)₂CHCH₂OH. Commercial production of iso butanol is completed by the carbonylation of propylene, which is abundantly availability in India. Iso Butanol is a colorless liquid that is utilized as an organic synthesis chemical intermediate and as a solvent in coating applications. Iso butanol is readily in many solvents such as aromatic hydrocarbon alcohol, ketone, aldehyde, aromatic hydrocarbons, glycol, and ether.

The market for Iso Butanol is primarily driven by its application as a solvent in numerous chemical products. Iso Butanol is employed as a feedstock for coating resins, paint thinners, and isobutyl derivatives like isobutyl acetate, isobutyl methacrylate, and isobutyl acrylate. The largest market contributor for isobutanol is building, both commercial and residential. Due to reasons like shifting lifestyles and rising investment, residential development has seen a significant surge in recent years. Government schemes like Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (Urban)-PMAY (U) towards providing housing to everyone in urban areas by 2022 have majorly created a demand for building construction materials in the historic period of FY2015-FY2021. The demand for housing and better infrastructure is anticipated to promote n-Butanol usage in the nation. The Iso Butanol market volume is estimated to reach approximately 140 thousand tonnes by FY2035.

Based on the region, in the historic period of FY2015-FY2022, West India has been ahead in the market. Western states like Gujarat and Maharashtra have been the key consumer of Iso Butanol due to the presence of leading industries of paints & coatings such as Asian Paints, and plasticizer manufacturers located in these states. To fulfill the growing demand for Iso Butanol, IOCL has commissioned a new plant which is estimated to be in operation in FY2024. During the production of N-butanol, iso-butanol will be produced as a by-product and the product is intended for merchant sale.

Based on end-use, the India Iso Butanol market is segregated into Plasticizer (DIBP), Emulsifier, Paints, and Others. In FY2022, the Plasticizer segment consolidated approximately 68% of the domestic demand followed by the Emulsifier industry and in the forecasted period, their market is projected to show rapid growth. Additionally, the industrial synthesis of derivative esters uses iso butanol. Diisobutyl phthalate (DIBP) and other isobutyl esters are employed as plasticizers in plastics, rubbers, and other dispersions.

Major players fulfilling the Iso Butanol demand in India are The Andhra Petrochemicals Limited and Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited along with other global players like Tricon Energy Ltd, ICC Chemical Corporation, BASF SE, and Others.
