Isopropyl alcohol is a volatile, flammable, clear and colourless liquid with disinfectant properties. Although it mixes with water, other alcohols, ether and chloroform but it is insoluble in salt solutions. It is used as a solvent for essential oils, alkaloids, gums, resins, coatings and cellulose, lacquers and in extraction processes. It is also used as an antiseptic; as an inert solvent to reduce the flammability of coatings during storage and transportation, and as an additive in inks and thinner for water-based paints. Isopropyl alcohol is registered as an antimicrobial, bactericide, fungicide and virucide. During 2014-2018, the global isopropyl alcohol market grew at a CAGR of around 2.5%. The market for isopropyl alcohol is driven by the demand of isopropyl in solvent applications which accounts for the majorly of its global market. The isopropyl alcohol is used in combination with either ethyl alcohol or N-propyl alcohol in disinfectants which include hand sanitizers, surface cleaners, and clinical instrument cleaners. The demand for isopropyl alcohol is currently growing more in the developing countries due to the growing economy and growing hygiene awareness. This report by Expert Market Research entitled “Isopropyl Alcohol Market Report and Forecast 2019-2024” provides a comprehensive analysis for anyone who plans to foray into the isopropyl alcohol market.
