The global butyl glycol market size was USD 0.79 billion in 2020. The market is projected to grow from USD 0.83 billion in 2021 to USD 1.17 billion in 2028 at a CAGR of 5.0% during the 2021-2028 period. The global impact of COVID-19 has been unprecedented and staggering, with butyl glycol witnessing a negative impact on demand across all regions amid the pandemic. Based on our analysis, the global market exhibited a decline in growth of 0.4% in 2020. The sudden rise in CAGR is attributable to this market’s demand and growth, returning to pre-pandemic levels once the pandemic is over.


Butyl glycol, also known as 2-butoxyethanol is an organic compound with a sweet ether-like odor. It is also known as butyl ether or ethylene glycol. It is one of the inexpensive and non-volatile employed in various industrial and domestic applications. It is obtained by two production processes which include ethoxylation of butanol and ethylene oxide and second processes includes etherification of 2-chloroethanol. The compound possesses modest surface active properties and can also be used as solvent attributed to the non-volatile nature and cost-effectiveness.


COVID-19 IMPACT


Slowdown in Production Activities Triggered By Covid-19 to Hinder Market Growth


The COVID-19 pandemic has brought unprecedented changes in the chemical sector. The chemical industry is one of the most important sectors in the economy, since it deals with the manufacturing and distribution of essentials such as fertilizers, plastics, packaging materials, speciality chemicals, and other chemicals. COVID-19 has significantly hit the chemical sector and severely disrupted the raw materials and product supply and chain cycle. Moreover, Covid-19 has heavily changed the spending behavior of consumers which has caused a drop in demand for chemicals. Paints and coatings industry have handled the effect of the force due to sudden decline in the construction, automotive and industrial sector.

Growing Application in Textiles and Fabric to Aid Growth


Butyl Glycol is one of the raw materials used for manufacturing a broad set of products including polyester fibers for clothes, carpets, upholstery, pillows, and also fiberglass. These products are further used in manufacturing various products such as polyethylene terephthalate. Most of the products manufactured are recyclable and cost efficient. These properties make it a sustainable choice which further is resulting in growth in demand for butyl alcohol.


DRIVING FACTORS


Growing Demand from Paints & Coatings Manufacturers to Drive Market Growth


A majority of this chemical produced is used as solvent in producing paints & coatings. Increasing demand for water and solvent based paints from various end-use sectors including construction, industrial, chemical, and food & beverages is boosting the demand for butyl glycol. It is also employed in making printing inks and varnishes. The low volatility of the compound extends the drying time of the coating and further improves its flow. Various properties such as volatility, inflammability, and solubility in water & other hydrophobic substances is driving market growth.


Increasing Adoption of Butyl Glycol in Cleaning Agents to Result in Growth


Butyl glycol possesses surface active properties and hence is widely used in cleaning and sterilizing chemicals and products. It is one of the major ingredients used in industrial and domestic cleaning solutions. The compound has polar and nonpolar ends and therefore effectively removes dirt and grease. It is also widely used in the petroleum industry as a component in drilling stabilizers, fracturing fluids and dispersing agents for water and oil based hydraulic fracturing. Growing demand for the compound as a surface active component is expected to drive the market growth.


RESTRAINING FACTORS


Carcinogenic Nature towards Rodents to Limit Butyl Glycol Market Growth


Butyl Glycol has low acute toxicity and can cause adrenal tumors in animals after long term exposure. Additionally, according to the American Conference of Governmental industrial hygienists, it is carcinogenic in nature for rodents. In California, it is listed as hazardous substance and employers are mandated to inform when assigned projects involving use of butyl glycol. Hazardous nature of the compound is a prime factor limiting the market growth.
