Isobutanol is also known as isobutyl alcohol, IBA and 2-methylpropan-1-ol. It is a colorless, flammable liquid, and low boiling isomer of butanol with a characteristic smell. Isobutanol is mainly used as a solvent. It is an organic compound with the formula (CH3)2CHCH2OH. Isobutanol is very soluble in water and miscible with alcohols and ketones. Isobutanol is produced by the carbonylation of propylene. Isobutanol is used as a raw material for isobutyl acrylate, coating resins, isobutyl acetate, and paint thinners. Isobutanol has various industrial applications such as precursor of various isobutyl esters, solvents for paints & coating, feedstock in isobutyl acetate manufacturing, production of pharmaceutical, textiles, anti-wear and corrosion inhibitor additives for lube oils, gasoline additive, agricultural chemicals manufacturing, automotive paint cleaner additive and automotive polish additive.

Paints and coating, automobiles, building & construction industry, pharmaceutical oil & gas, chemical intermediate and other are the key application segment of isobutanol. Chemical intermediate was the leading application market for isobutanol and accounted for over 42% share of the total volume in 2014. Paints & coating and oil & gas are also expected to largest market for isobutanol. The application segment is expected to observer fast growth over the forecast period in various end-use industries including automotive and construction.

Isobutanol MarketRising building & construction industry, chemical intermediate and automobile industry is expected to boost the growth of the isobutanol market. Growing demand from paints and coatings industry is expected to be an important driving factor for the isobutanol market. Increasing pharmaceutical industry in developed and developing countries due to improving health standards is also acting as key driver for the market. Furthermore, isobutanol is an important solvent in pharmaceutical industry due to its properties for example medium volatility, less miscibility with water. However, crude oil cost and supply fluctuations are expected to hinder the isobutanol market growth. Development in bio-based product expected to open up immense opportunity for Isobutanol market. Bio-fuel developments with isobutanol based fuels are expected to offer new growth window for industry participants in this market.

Global isobutanol market has been segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and Latin America. Asia Pacific region was the major consumer of the Isobutanol in term of consumption. Increasing demand from automobiles, construction and paints & coating industries is likely to boost the demand for isobutanol in the region during the next few years. However, Asia Pacific is anticipated to be the fastest growing market during the next few years due to demand from emerging economies like India and China.  Asia pacific was followed by Europe, is projected to observer the highest growth rate in the years to come. North America is also expected to grow at moderate rate due to rapidly growing automobile and pharmaceutical industry.

Some of the major industry participants in global isobutanol market include BASF SE, Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation, Formosa Plastics Corp., The Dow Chemical Company, Oxea GmbH, Eastman Chemical Company, Sasol Ltd., Ineos Oxide Ltd. and Saudi Kayan Petrochemical Company.
