Dublin, March 08, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Global n-Butanol Market Analysis: Plant Capacity, Production, Operating Efficiency, Demand & Supply, End-User Industries, Sales Channel, Regional Demand, Foreign Trade, Company Share, 2015-2032" database has been added to's offering.

The global n-Butanol market has expanded to reach approximately 5000 thousand tonnes in 2021 and is expected to grow at a healthy CAGR of 5.51% during the forecast period until 2032. The global n-Butanol market is anticipated to reach 8200 thousand tonnes by 2032.

n-Butanol finds its applications in multiple industries due to its ease of solubility in common solvents including alcohols, ethers, glycols, and hydrocarbons. n-butanol is used as a solvent for paint, varnishes, resins, gums, vegetable oils, dyes, and alkaloids as well as natural and synthetic resins. This solvent is quite flammable in nature and has a flashpoint of about 35 C and should be stored in drums in cool and dry place away from sunlight.

Due to its extensive use in the building and construction industry, n-Butanol is in high demand as a solvent, coating, and chemical intermediary for butyl acetate, ethers, and other chemicals is fueling the growth of the n-Butanol market. Its application in the building & construction industry such as paints & coatings, lubricants, and varnishes drives the n-Butanol market.

Owing to the rise in construction projects and infrastructure development across the globe, the demand of paints & coatings is anticipated to rise, which will most likely swell the n-butanol market in the forecast period.

Based on region, Asia Pacific region dominates the n-Butanol market. As of 2021, this region consumed approximately 35% of the global n-Butanol. Owing to the rapidly growing countries like India, China, and Japan, there will be a rise in construction sector leading to new industrial projects, anticipated to project a huge demand for paints & coating for usage in building and other infrastructure, anticipated to increase the demand of n-Butanol in this region.

Based on the end-use, the global n-Butanol market is segregated into Solvent, Plasticizer, Coating, and others. Among these industries, the Solvent industry is dominating the n-butanol market and accounted a market share of approximately 40% in 2021.

n-butanol is utilized to manufacture n-butyl acetate which is a transparent solvent with excellent solubility for cellulose nitrate, plastics, polymers, and hydrocarbons. It is employed in paint, ink, chemical, and leather industries. Another derivative of n-butanol, n-butyl acrylate is widely employed in coatings to provide stability at low-temperature and stability and also used in various industries like paints, textiles, paper, adhesives, inks, fiber, and rubber.
