Increasing Manufacturing of Sanitizers and Disinfectants to Drive Growth
The increasing production of disinfectants and sanitizers worldwide is set to surge the demand for dimethyl ketone as isopropanol is derived from it. Besides, the high popularity of cosmetics and personal care products would aid the acetone market growth throughout the forthcoming years. However, acetone possesses higher initiation energy points and can’t auto-ignite. This may hamper its demand.
Paints Coatings Segment to Grow Steadily Fueled by Higher Usage of Solvents
Based on end-use, the plastic segment earned 33.3% in terms of the global acetone market share in 2019. The paints coatings segment generated the largest share in 2019 because of the rising usage of solvents in this sector as it can dissolve non-polar and polar substances.
Easy Availability of Raw Materials to Favor Growth in Asia Pacific
In 2019, Asia Pacific held USD 1,739.2 million in terms of revenue. This growth is attributable to the lower labor cost and easy availability of raw materials in emerging countries, such as India and China. Dimethyl ketone is extensively used in numerous manufacturing processes as an industrial solvent in the region.
North America, on the other hand, is anticipated to grow considerably backed by the increasing research and development activities in the electronics sector. It would further surge the demand for Bisphenol-A. The presence of large chemical industries in the U.K., Italy, and Germany would propel growth in Europe.
