Isooctyl Alcohol Market: Introduction
The isooctyl alcohol is a liquid that is used as solvent and chemical intermediate for the production of plasticizer and lubricants. It has become a significant ingredient for manufacturing plasticizer which helps to soften plastic which is used for manufacturing wire & cable and film & sheet.
Polyvinyl chloride consumes around 80% of the plasticizer produced. High demand for plasticizer in the manufacturing of flexible PVC for packaging applications is expected to drive the market.
It is produced on a large scale for various end-use industries. It is also used for making paint, printing, and dyeing.
Isooctyl Alcohol Market: Dynamics
High demand for plasticizer in these industries is surging the demand for isooctyl alcohol.
Additionally, the growing demand for isooctyl alcohol in petroleum additive or fuel additive for improving the octane rating of fuel and engine performance in terms of efficiency, maximum speed, and acceleration is expected to boost the isooctyl alcohol market growth.
The rising consumption of packaged food & beverage products across the globe is positively impacting the application of PVC in packaging. Growth in the packaging industry is also anticipated to fuel the demand for isooctyl alcohol during the forecast period.
Wire and cables insulation materials in industrial, residential and commercials sectors is also estimated to fuel the demand of isooctyl alcohol.The isooctyl alcohol manufacturers tend to increase their production capacity to meet the growing demand from end-use industry.
Few manufacturers in the industry are expanding their global footprints and distribution network to strengthen company market share.The high demand for isooctyl alcohol has attracted a large number of small scale producers in the industry.
The key development strategies majorly adopted by prominent manufacturers are expansion and acquisition. Beside, Isooctyl alcohol is an organic compound that has less stringent regulation in the industry.
Thus, the entrance of a new player in the industry is expected to be high in the coming year owing to a positive market outlook.
COVID-19 crisis impact
The COVID-19 crisis in turn has affected the industrial and manufacturing sectors to a profound degree where most of the industry types are more or less expected to incur negative to conservative growth in the present year.
As far as Isooctyl Alcohol market is concerned, the demand from fuel additive and packaging will create sound growth effects amidst the overall end uses.
The remaining end use industries i.e. Chemicals and Industrial products will foresee a limited rate of consumption of Isooctyl Alcohol in 2020 where the recovery period is expected not earlier than the next 4 to 6 financial quarters.
