Isopropanol and n-propanol are majorly employed as a solvent and as a precursor for manufacturing other chemicals. Solvents industry is the largest consumer of isopropanol and n-propanol, consuming more than half of the total global consumption of isopropanol and more than 40.0% of the total global consumption of n-propanol in the global propanol market.

U.S. is the major consumer of propanol, consuming about 23.7% of the total propanol and more than 50.0% of n-propanol demanded globally in 2012. Asia-Pacific and ROW regions are expected to be the fastest growing markets of propanol during the forecasted period.

The global market for n-propanol as well as isopropanol is dominated by some major players, but its growing demand in China and other developing countries of Asia-Pacific has changed the competition intensity with the growth of local manufacturing plants by the existing players. The Top four players accounted for about 52.4% of the global isopropanol market in 2012. Royal Dutch Shell PLC (The Netherlands) was the leading market participant with around 16.0% market share in 2012.

In terms of propanol market activities, Dow Chemical was the most active player from 2010 to 2013 with a share of 15.8% of the total development activities. The company took various efforts to improve its production and create awareness through promotional activities. Subsequently, BASF, Mitsui Chemicals and LG Chem. were the other active players to get into agreements and focus on expansions to obtain wide presence.

The major opportunity in the propanol market can be understood by examining the pharmaceutical industry growth in various countries such as China and India. Isopropanol is significantly used in the pharmaceutical industry as an antiseptic, disinfectant, mouthwash solutions, and is employed in capsule & tablet manufacturing. India and China are among the major markets which employ isopropanol in pharmaceutical applications at a large scale. Increase in demand of isopropanol in countries like China and India may turn out to be an opportunity for market players where they can invest and capitalize on the same. Also, capacity expansion and plant integration are identified to be the key strategies for capturing the market opportunities.

Propanol (Isopropanol & N-Propanol), 2,745.8 kilotons market by 2018, signifying firm annualized growth rate of 3.9%

The global propanol market, including isopropanol and n-propanol, has witnessed a significant growth in the past few years and this growth is estimated to continue in the coming years. Both isopropanol and n-propanol are among the most widely used solvents and are also employed for manufacturing various industrial chemicals, additionally isopropanol finds significant applications in pharmaceuticals. Isopropanol is considered as a viable substitute for other organic solvents and its volumetric consumption is far more than that of n-propanol.

Currently, Asia-Pacific is the largest consumer of isopropanol, consuming about 40.0% of the total global consumption, while North America is the largest consumer of n-propanol, consuming more than half of the total global consumption in 2012. Among all the countries, U.S. leads the isopropanol and n-propanol market, consuming maximum volume of both in 2012. The market volume of isopropanol & n-propanol is comparatively low in ROW region, but it is expected show the highest CAGR from 2013 to 2018, followed by Asia-Pacific.

Currently, a large volume of isopropanol and n-propanol is used as a solvent in various industries. The demand growth of n-propanol as a direct solvent is quite high while isopropanol consumption as a solvent is growing at a lower CAGR, which is majorly due to stringent norms on volatile organic compound emissions. Isopropanol use in pharmaceutical industry is driving its demand significantly and is expected to show the highest CAGR from 2013 to 2018.

Major manufacturing plants of isopropanol & n-propanol are located in North America and Europe, making these regions net exporters of both the compounds. Major manufacturers of isopropanol include Royal Dutch Shell PLC (The Netherlands), The Dow Chemical Company (U.S.), ExxonMobil Chemical Company (U.S.), and Sasol Ltd. (South Africa), while key n-propanol manufacturers are OXEA GmbH (Germany), Sasol Ltd. (South Africa), The Dow Chemical Company (U.S.), Eastman Chemical Company (U.S.), and BASF SE (Germany).
