The Asia Pacific is the largest acetone market, accounting for almost 46% of the global share, followed by the European Union and North America. China, one of the significant regions in the Asia Pacific, is the centre of acetone production. China is also a significant importer of acetone, importing majorly from countries including Taiwan, Thailand, and South Korea, among others. The other countries that import acetone to the Asia Pacific include the Unites States and Belgium. However, the import and export rates in the Asia Pacific witnessed a fall in 2018 due to rising domestic demand from construction and automobiles industries. India, another major country in the Asia Pacific region, has imposed ADD (Anti-Dumping Duties) in 2015 for five years. The duties were introduced as a measure to protect the domestic industry of acetone, which was being harmed due to excess imports from other regions. The local industry players who requested these anti-dumping duties included Hindustan Organic Chemicals Ltd. (HOC) and Schenectady Herdillia Ltd. (SI Ltd.).
Europe follows the Asia Pacific in terms of the largest acetone market. It is the largest exporter of acetone globally, significantly exporting to countries like Turkey, China, India, and the United States. Europe’s acetone market is also supported by its rapidly growing cosmetic market, which uses acetone in regulated measures. The demand meets the acetone supply in the region, and thus, the region is self-sufficient in terms of acetone. North America is also one of the significant acetone exporters, exporting majorly to Latin America and China, among other regions. Like China, North America also imports acetone from South Korea, South Africa, and Singapore.
Properties and Applications
Acetone refers to a simple organic compound used in the production of bulk pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals, dyestuffs, other explosives, and downstream chemicals. It also has wide applications in the manufacturing of rubber chemicals. It has wide applications in the following:
The EMR report also covers the regional markets like North America, Europe, the Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa.
The acetone market is majorly driven by the growing end-use industries, which include BPA and MMA, especially in the developing regions like India and China. BPA is used as sealants or fillings in dental practices, whereas MMA is widely used in the construction industry. Both pharmaceuticals and construction industries are growing at a rapid rate and are likely to witness faster growth in the coming years. Moreover, increasing construction in the United States is also propelling the acetone market growth. The construction industry is majorly boosting the demand growth for acetone. Acetone also has applications in the automobiles industry, which is growing at a fast pace.
The growing cosmetic industry also supports the acetone market growth. The growth of the cosmetics industry in the emerging regions of the Asia Pacific is expected to aid the industry growth further. Acetone is also widely used in the production of epoxy resins as well as polycarbonate. The increasing markets of both these products are likely to support the demand growth of acetone in the coming years.
The acetone market growth is also driven by the growing market for household cleaning products. The demand is driven by the increasing awareness about hygiene among consumers, especially the younger generation. The demand for phenol is increasing, especially in the Asia Pacific region, which is further aiding the growth of the acetone market. The growth is also aided by the rising disposable income of the population.
