is a colorless, low boiling isomer of butanol that is manufactured from propene through industrial process as well as from fermentation of carbohydrate substrates. Globally, development of efficient and advance technology, rising demand from paints and coating industry, construction, and automotive industries, increasing processed foods industry in various developing countries, flourishing pharmaceutical industry, and advantageous properties of isobutanol such as, medium volatility, limited miscibility, improve gloss and flow and prevent blushing are the prime growth drivers of global isobutanol market. In addition, commercialization of bio-isobutanol production through biological fermentation, increase in adoption of isobutene for application in newer industrial vertical, and emerging economies such as China, India and others, will create new opportunities for global isobutanol market. However, volatile prices and availability of raw materials, availability of substitute compounds, and stringent government regulatioms are the key restraints for global isobutanol market.
Geographically Asia Pacific dominated
global isobutanol market
, followed by Europe. Asia Pacific is projected to have fastest growth, owing to rapidly increasing automobile industry, rise in industrial sector, increasing oil & gas industry, development in construction sectors, and growing pharmaceutical in developing nations such as China, and India in this region. Among all the applications, chemical intermediates segment has the highest market share in global isobutanol market due to spur rising demand from automotive and construction industries. Synthetic isobutanol is the market leader among all types of isobutanol, with a market share of around 50%.
