The global demand for methyl isobutyl ketone is further expected to grow at a CAGR of 3% over the forecast period of 2020-2025 to attain a volume of around 513 thousand metric tons by 2025.

The global methyl isobutyl ketone market is being aided by the growing paints and coatings sector and the automobile industry, particularly in regions like Brazil, Eastern Europe, and some Asian countries.
