Butyl Acetate Market Synopsis:


Butyl acetate consumption was about 1.2 million tons in 2013 and reached to 1.42 million tons in 2017. The global butyl acetate market is expected to register a CAGR of 3.2% during the forecast period, 2022–2030.


Butyl acetate is a colorless, flammable liquid with a fruity odor. It is typically used to dissolve other substances including nitrocellulose. It is found naturally in food products and can also be produced chemically. It is a low viscosity liquid mainly used as a solvent in various end-use industries.


Butyl acetate is commonly used to produce flavors used in the food processing industry to impart the desired flavor to the food and beverages. With an evaporation rate of 1, it provides quick-drying lacquer conditions. It is also used as a solvent in the manufacturing of paints and coatings. It acts as a basic film-forming material, which results in better finishing in paints, coatings, and nail polish, among others. Additionally, the use of butyl acetate in the production of road marking materials, sealants, adhesives, and architectural coatings is increasing its demand in the construction industry.


Furthermore, butyl acetate also finds applications in the manufacturing of printing inks, auto plastics, automobile parts, automobile coatings, and auto refinishing. Also, butyl acetate is used in the manufacturing of packaging components for the food packaging industry. Thus, with the growth of the automotive & transportation, construction, and food & beverage industries, the demand for butyl acetate is expected to increase in the coming years.


In industrial applications such as industrial coatings, maintenance, and protective coatings, the use of butyl acetate is increasing with the growth of the industrial sector. Additionally, one of its major uses is in cosmetics and perfumes. It is used to impart fragrance in perfumes, while in cosmetics it acts as a binding agent in the production process. The growing use of cosmetics and perfumes across the globe is expected to fuel the growth of the global butyl acetate market. However, the hazardous issues such as overexposure to workers, which may cause lungs and kidney problems, during the production of butyl acetate are expected to restrain the growth of global butyl acetate market during the forecast period.

Recent Development

Sep 2021  - Raw materials to OQ Chemicals are temporarily prohibited due to a technical fault in the location of a third-party synthesis gas unit at the Oberhausen, Germany. A leak was discovered during a routine check near the valves on the cylinder block. Regrettably, the compressor had to be pulled out of operation for safety reasons to carry out immediate repairs off-site. As a result, OQ Chemicals is unable to meet its production targets. Because the source of the supply constraints is beyond OQ Chemicals' immediate control, the business is forced to declare force majeure for Propionaldehyde, 2- Ethylhexanol, n- and iso-Butyraldehyde, n- & iso-Butanol, and n-Butyl Acetate with immediate effect. Resultantly, OQ Chemicals will be unable to make distributions of these products as planned. The existing volumes will be allocated fairly and reasonably.
