The global isopropyl alcohol market reached a value of US$ 4.3 billion in 2021. Looking forward, the market is projected to reach US$ 5.4 billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 4.1% during 2022-2027. Keeping in mind the uncertainties of COVID-19, the analyst is continuously tracking and evaluating the direct as well as the indirect influence of the pandemic on different End-use industries. These insights are included in the report as a major market contributor.
Isopropyl alcohol is an organic chemical compound with the chemical formula C3H7OH. It is a colourless, volatile and flammable liquid compound which has a bitter taste and strong odour. Although miscible with water, few alcohols, ether and chloroform, isopropyl alcohol is insoluble in salt solutions. It majorly finds application as a solvent in essential oils, resins, alkaloids, gums, cellulose and coatings; de-icing agent in lacquers, liquid fuels and extraction processes; and an antiseptic in anti-freeze compositions. Isopropyl alcohol is also used in the production of glycerol, shellacs, quick drying inks, isopropyl acetate and creosote.
Global Isopropyl Alcohol Industry Drivers:
Isopropyl alcohol finds diverse applications in several downstream industries like paint and coating, automotive, cosmetic, printing, pharmaceutical, etc. Economic reforms have resulted into a rise in the disposable incomes and changes in lifestyle of the consumers across the globe, thereby catalysing the growth of these industries.
Isopropyl alcohol has been used to remove flux residues after soldering and as a general cleaner to remove oil, grease, and other handling soils. Apart from this, it is also used for purifying and extracting natural products such as animal and vegetable oils, waxes, resins, flavourings, fats, vitamins, etc., which is positively influencing the market growth.
One of the fastest-growing markets for isopropyl alcohol is Asia Pacific, wherein China represents the leading region. As isopropyl alcohol is readily available in the region, it can be purchased in bulk quantities at fairly low prices. Additionally, thriving cosmetics and personal care industry, rapid economic growth and elevating income levels have resulted into a heightened demand for isopropyl alcohol-based products.
Isopropyl alcohol is stable if it is properly handled and stored in adequate conditions. In addition to this, it has a shelf-life of two years from the manufacturing date. The chemical makeup and potency of isopropyl alcohol remain stable for two years in its original closed container.
The most popular technique for producing isopropyl alcohol on a commercial level is the indirect hydration of propylene. Demerits of this method such as high energy cost, corrosive condition and pollution problems had led to the development of a more efficient technique, called catalytic hydrogenation of acetone. Such technological advancements in the production have empowered the industry with higher yield rates and production of high-purity grades, thereby generating opportunities for new applications of isopropyl alcohol.
