Methyl tertiary butyl ether (MTBE)
is a colourless, volatile, flammable liquid produced by reacting isobutene with methanol in a liquid phase reactor in presence of ion exchange resin. Isobutylene is derived by further processing methyl tertiary butyl ether, which on further processing gives derivates such as methyl methacrylate (MMA), butyl rubber and polyisobutylene. Globally, rising demand for gasoline and gasoline additives in oil & gas and marine sectors, growing automotive industry across the globe, increasing demand for solvent in chemical industry, low cost and effectiveness, and advantageous properties of methyl tertiary butyl ether are the prime growth drivers of global methyl tertiary butyl ether market. In addition, increase in adoption of methyl tertiary butyl ether for application in newer industrial vertical, and emerging economies such as China, India and others, will create new opportunities for global methyl tertiary butyl ether market. However, volatile prices and availability of raw materials, availability of substitute compounds, health and environmental issues related with methyl tertiary butyl ether, stringent government regulations and emergence biofuels in European Union and the U.S. are the key restraints for global methyl tertiary butyl ether market.
