Para-tert-Octylphenol (POTP) Market Overview
The global Para-tert-Octylphenol (POTP) Market was estimated to have acquired market revenue worth US$ 201.2 Million in 2022. With the increasing demand in the global market, these revenues are predicted to soar up to US$ 336.5 Million by 2033, with a CAGR of 4.8% from 2023 to 2033.
The varied use of para-tert-octylphenol (POTP) in various end-use industries has been accelerating the major part of the demand. PTOP, also known as para-tert-octylphenol, is used in phenolic resins, tackifier resins, ink resins, polycarbonate chain terminators, and surfactants. Additionally, it may be used as a chemical intermediary for phenolic resins that are oil-soluble and surfactant-soluble, as well as UV stabilizers. It works well to increase adhesion between synthetic and natural rubber, especially IR, BR, SBR, and EPDM. It is primarily utilized for a variety of rubber goods, including sidewall, conveyor belts, and tire belts, that include a significant percentage of synthetic rubber and require strong adhesiveness. It may also be used for shoe soles, spacers, tires, and hoses in the automobile industry.
The primary driver propelling the para-tert-octyl phenol market is the growing market for PTOP being utilized more frequently in the manufacturing of octyl-phenol-formaldehyde resins, which are widely used for paints, printing inks, and coatings. Due to their strong resistance to salty seas, special paints are increasingly being employed in marine applications, which has resulted in significant market demand. The market is expanding rapidly owing to the rising demand for printing inks that may be used to color glass, plastic, paper, metal, as well as other materials. As a result, in the upcoming years, leading players in the para-tert-octylphenol market may also expect growth prospects from the automotive as well as paint industries.
Region-wise, the Asia Pacific market for para-tert-octylphenol is expected to be the most lucrative region for these products. China has the presence of the key manufacturers in this region which is expanding the growth. Also, a major portion of the revenues is expected to be coming from developing countries such as India. The increasing demand for phenolic resins by the domestic and electrical appliances market in the region due to the rapid urbanization and emerging economy is propelling the Indian market for para-tert-octylphenol. The supply of para-tert-octylphenol in the Indian market is mainly dependent on the availability and production of diisobutylene and phenol. Also, the presence of vivid distribution channels along with a huge number of end-user industries in the northern and southern parts of the country are accelerating the rapid growth of the Indian para-tert-octylphenol during the forecast period.
For example, in India, Shubh Industries offers a wide variety of para-tert-octylphenol, which is known for its exceptional performance, and incomparably high-quality products. They are regarded as one of the top manufacturers of para-tert-octylphenol and are situated in India. This para-tert-octylphenol is made in a secure environment by a competent team of professionals. They provide this good quality para-tert-octylphenol at reasonable costs and that too promptly. They are the ideal combination of dependability and extended shelf life.
Another manufacturer from China is Gihi Chemicals. Gihi Chemicals Co., Limited, which was formerly only a tiny manufacturer, has grown into a constructive company. Gihi Chemicals Co., Limited sells 4-Methyl-3-penten-2-one in addition to 4-tert-Octylphenol. The business is devoted to creating, manufacturing, and selling chemicals. Small quantities (gram grade) for study up to large quantities for industrial manufacturing are all covered by GIHI CHEMICALS. From one to five thousand liters can be produced by them during synthesis.
Hence, with such significant manufacturers all across the world, the para-tert-octylphenol market is expected to gain new heights in the next ten years.
According to latest research, the demand of Para-tert-Octylphenol is anticipated to grow with a significant growth rate of about 4.5% to 6.0% in between the coming assessment period of 2021 to 2031.
Demand is expected to increase owing to the increasing usage of the substance in the production of octyl-phenol-formaldehyde resins, which find widespread usage for printing inks, paints & coatings and many others.
What is Driving Demand for Para-tert-Octylphenol?
With the increasing demand of automotive industry and paint industry in the market the use of octylphenol gradually increase. As Para-tert-Octylphenol used in the manufacture of emulsion polymers for use in paint. These special paints used in marine applications because of the high resistance to saline waters that they provide.
It is also used in the rubber compounding process for tyre manufacture to increase the tackiness of the rubber and improve the adhesion of the different layers during vulcanization. they are mainly used as an emulsifier for emulsion polymerization by companies producing polymers like styrene-butadiene.
The consumption of this compound will increase in these application segment will boost the demand of the Para-tert-Octylphenol compound during the forecast period.
Printing Inks and Coatings industry to remain a key segment for the consumption of Para-tert-Octylphenol
With the growing demand of Para-tert-Octylphenol in various end user industries, the global market of Para-tert-Octylphenol is estimated to witness a considerable growth in the coming years.
