Oxo alcohols are prepared by reacting olefins with syngas (hydroformulation reaction) under low pressure in presence of rhodium catalyst. The resultant aldehyde is hydrogenated to give Oxo-alcohols. Various olefins such as ethylene, propylene, acetylene can be used as raw materials for preparation of different kinds of Oxo-alcohols. The commercially important Oxo alcohols are N-butanol, 2-ethylhexanol, Isobutanol, and others. The market of Oxo alcohols is forecasted to be around 12,601 KT in terms of volume in 2020 growing at a CAGR around 4.4%. Oxo-alcohols are primarily consumed as solvents for preparing plasticizers, paints, coatings & adhesives, lubricant additives and in chemical manufacturing. The major end user industries of Oxo alcohols are acrylates, acetates, chemical intermediates, and plasticizers.

The Oxo alcohols market has grown rapidly during the past few years and this trend is expected to continue in the next five years. The growth is mainly driven by the increasing demand in the Asia-Pacific region. Asia-Pacific is the biggest market for Oxo alcohols followed by Europe and North America, which together accounted for more than 90.0% market share in 2014. China is the biggest market for Oxo alcohols, followed by United States, and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 7% between 2015 and 2020. The European market is comparatively mature with a consumption growth rate well below the average market growth. N-butanol and 2-ethylhexanol are the largest consumed Oxo alcohols with a combined market share of over 70%. Plasticizer is the largest end-user segment of Oxo alcohols followed by acrylates.

Oxo alcohols: A projected value of 12,601 KT by 2020, signifying firm annualized growth of around 4.4% between 2015 and 2020.

Oxo alcohols are prepared by reacting olefins with syn gas (hydroformulation reaction) under low pressure in presence of rhodium catalyst. The resultant aldehyde is hydrogenated to give Oxo-alcohols. Various olefins such as ethylene, propylene, acetylene can be used as raw materials for preparation of different kinds of Oxo-alcohols. The commercially important Oxo alcohols are n-butanol, 2-ethylhexanol, and isobutanol.

Currently, Asia-Pacific is the biggest market for Oxo alcohols followed by Europe and North America, which together accounted for more than 90% market share in 2014. China is the biggest market for Oxo alcohols, followed by United States, and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 7% between 2015 and 2020. The European market is comparatively mature with a consumption growth rate well below the average market growth. The European Oxo alcohols market is expected to show the lowest CAGR between 2015 and 2020.

On the basis of application, the Oxo alcohols market is further categorized into Acrylates, Glycol Ethers, Acetate, Lube, Resins, Solvents, Plasticizers, and others. Plasticizers are the largest application segment of Oxo alcohols, followed by use in acrylates and acetates industry.

On the basis of type, the Oxo alcohols market is further categorized into N-butanol, 2-ethylhexanol, Isobutanol, and others. The growth in end user segment is primarily driven by growing demand from the Asia-Pacific region particularly from China.

The major players of Oxo alcohols BASF Petronas (Malaysia), Dow Chemical Company (U.S.), Eastman Chemical Company (U.S.), ExxonMobil Chemical Company (U.S.), Arkema SA (France), Evonik Industries (Germany), The Andhra Petrochemicals Limited (India), Oxea (U.S.), ZAK S.A. (Poland), Ineos (Switzerland), BAX Chemicals (The Netherlands), Qatar Petroleum (Qater), and LG Chem (South Korea).
