2-Ethylhexanol is a colorless, combustible liquid that is poorly soluble in water but soluble in most organic solvents. It is produced by three-step process involving the aldol self-condensation of n-butyraldehyde followed by dehydration and hydrogenation. N-butyraldehyde itself is produced by catalytic hydroformylation of propylene with synthesis gas. It is an important feedstock to manufacture various chemicals that further serve diverse industries that include automotive, paints, building & construction, and various other manufacturing industries. Its main application segments include plasticizers, 2-EH acrylate, 2-EH nitrate, and others. This report highlight the trends, forecasts and growth opportunities in the global 2-Ethylhexanol market.

The 2-Ethylhexanol market has grown considerably during the past few years and is expected to grow at a rapid pace in the next five years, mainly driven by growing demand in the Asia-Pacific region. Asia-Pacific is the largest market of 2-EH, consuming more than 60.0% of the total demand globally. It is majorly consumed in the region for manufacturing phthalate as well as phthalate free plasticizers, out of which a major share lies with phthalate plasticizers. China is expected to be the key country in terms of augmentation of demand volume with an estimated CAGR of about 6.4% from 2013 to 2018.

2-EH: 4,434.0 kilotons market by 2018, signifying a firm annualized growth rate of over 5.2%

The global 2-Ethylhexanol market, has witnessed a significant growth in the past few years and this growth is estimated to persist in the coming years. It is a key building block to manufacture various chemicals that are further used by a wide range of end-user industries. Its major application areas include the manufacturing of plasticizers, 2-EH acrylate, and 2-EH nitrate.

Currently, Asia-Pacific is the largest consumer of 2-Ethylhexanol, which consumed more than 60.0% of the total global consumption. In 2012, among all the countries, China leads the market, which consumed the maximum volume of 2-EH. The market volume is comparatively low in the ROW region, but is expected to show the highest CAGR of about 6.2% from 2013 to 2018, followed by Asia-Pacific.

2-Ethylhexanol was majorly consumed by plasticizers producers in 2012 and this consumption is expected to elevate at an estimated CAGR of 5.0% between 2013 and 2018. Subsequently, 2-Ethylhexanol acrylate and 2-EH nitrate production segment were the major consumers with a consumption of 553.6 kilo tons and 221.1 kilo tons respectively globally in 2012. The consumption pattern of 2-Ethylhexanol by various application segments is not uniform among various geographies, majorly due to restricted use of phthalate plasticizers in Europe and North America.

Major producers in the 2-Ethylhexanol market includes BASF SE (Germany), China National Petroleum Corporation (China), Eastman Chemical Company (U.S.), Elekeiroz S.A. (Brazil), Formosa Plastic Group (Taiwan), Grupa Azoty (Poland), LG Chem Limited (South Korea), OXEA GmbH (Germany), Saudi Basic Industries Corporation (Saudi Arabia), and China Petroleum & Chemical Corporation (Sinopec, China).
