Butyl alcohol is straight chain alcohol with four carbons, having molecular formulae – (C4 H10O)-. It is colorless and flammable liquid with a strong and sweet odor. The raw materials for the production of butyl alcohol are syngas and propylene, produced through petrochemical processes. The other names for butyl alcohol are butanol, n-butanol. The notable properties of butyl alcohol include better melting and boiling point, better viscosity, better potential as a fuel and soluble in solvents & insoluble in water. The primary applications of butyl alcohol are they act as an intermediate in the synthesis of flavoring substance, accelerating agent in rubber synthesis, and dewaxing agent for organic dyes & inks. Butyl alcohol is known to possess improved properties vis-à-vis other product types, which helps them gain preferential applications in various end-use industries, such as coatings, automotive, construction, agriculture, pharmaceutical, and textile. Besides, butyl alcohol has superior property with very low level of impurities.

Global Butyl Alcohol Market: Dynamics

The global demand for butyl alcohol from the agricultural and coating sector is expected to surge in next few years, owing to the penetration in high-value resins, especially solvents. With the increasing demand for the environmentally friendly, low VOC water-based paints, coatings, inks and adhesives are factors expected to surge the growth of the butyl alcohol market throughout the forecast period. The market for the plastic and polymer is growing as the use of plastic bags, synthetic rubber, and brake fluids has increased, which consequently is expected to contribute to the growth of the global butyl alcohol market. 

The increasing demand for efficient fuel, rapid-acting intermediates as extractants in pharmaceuticals and artificial food, introduction of innovative food manufacturing facilities, and aging population are the key factors expected to drive the growth of the butyl alcohol market. The financial instability and regulatory norms are factors expected to restrain the growth of the global butyl alcohol market over the forecast period.
