The Asia Pacific accounts for the largest share in the global oxo-alcohol market. China is the leading producer of oxo-alcohol in the world followed by the US. North America is a mature market for oxo-alcohol. The industry in the region is being driven by the rising per capita consumption of plastic. The diversification of plasticiser applications across various industries is driving the oxo-alcohol market in the region. Plasticisers are the largest application sector for oxo-alcohol, globally. They find the majority of their applications in PVC, to improve the material’s durability and flexibility. The rise in environmental consciousness is leading to a growing demand for non-phthalate plasticisers.
n-Butanol is preferred over other oxo-alcohol types and accounts for the largest market share. Butanols, overall, have witnessed a healthy growth over the recent years, due to the rising application of its derivative butyl acrylate in water-based coatings. The German chemical company, BASF is the leading producer of oxo alcohols, especially, producing n-butanols. Although the company remained on force majeure for isobutanol (IBA) in Ludwigshafen, Germany in Q1 2019, the supply of n-butanol (NBA) and 2-ethyl hexanol (2-EH) was enough to meet the demand in Europe. In 2017, INEOS Oxide, a key player in the industry, acquired Arkema’s Oxo alcohol business including the company’s stake in Oxochimie, Arkema’s joint venture at Lavéra with INEOS. Oxochimie used to manufacture butanols and 2-ethyl hexanol.
