In the last quarter of 2023, there was a steady downward trend in the iso butanol market in the USA. Reduced demand for downstream industries such as polyvinyl chloride (PVC), paints, and coatings caused prices to fall. The price reduction of iso butanol was further exacerbated by the decline in propylene, the feedstock. Ultimately, prices stabilized around 2033 USD/MT at the conclusion of Q4.

In Q42023, the Japanese iso butanol market faced difficulties. The nation's industrial sector shrank, which reduced consumer demand for the products. November saw a minor improvement in the pricing trend as a result of a major market player raising the price of their products. The cost of iso butanol reached 1077 USD/MT by the end of December.

The last quarter of 2023 saw a number of difficulties for the German iso butanol market. The domestic construction industry and international exports showed a muted demand for iso butanol. Additionally, throughout the quarter, there was a noticeable variation in the price of propylene feedstock, which contributed to the downward price trend. In Germany, the average price of iso butanol was 1115 USD/MT.

Iso Butanol Price Trend

Iso Butanol Market Analysis

The global iso butanol market size reached 4179.2 thousand tonnes in 2023. By 2032, IMARC Group expects the market to reach 6200 thousand tonnes, at a projected CAGR of 4.50% during 2023-2032.

  • The demand for iso butanol is being driven by the growing need for solvents across a range of industries. This substance is a great solvent that enhances the gloss, flow characteristics, and viscosity of a variety of compositions, including paints, varnishes, coatings, and inks. The paints and coatings industry is expected to expand by 4.6% per year and reach USD 269.0 billion by 2032, according to the most recent IMARC Group research. Additionally, it is projected that the ink industry would increase at a 2.9% annual pace to reach US$ 26.6 billion by 2032. The need for solvents like iso butanol is predicted to soar along with these industries.
  • Additionally, the global outlook is shifting towards sustainability, leading to greater interest in bio-based alternatives. Consequently, businesses are making investments in the creation of bio-based iso butanol, which is in line with current trends and provides ecological advantages. Gevo, for instance, has created a patented process to create iso butanol from renewable feedstock. Using corn as the feedstock, this technique produces 10 pounds of high-protein animal feed for every gallon of iso butanol generated.
  • Also, the need for iso butanol is being driven by the automotive industry's heavy reliance on paints and coatings. In order to produce a smooth finish and long-lasting vehicle coatings, this chemical delivers exceptional solvency and moderate volatility. The production of passenger automobiles worldwide reached 50 million units in 2022, up 9% from the year before, according to the Organisation Internationale des Constructeurs d'Automobiles (OICA). Beyond this, a 3.6% annual growth rate is projected to reach USD 1114.2 billion in the commercial vehicle market by 2032.
  • Governments are assisting in the development of biofuels and other alternative fuels. Iso butanol is a viable biofuel because it has a higher energy density than ethanol and can lessen the carbon impact of transportation fuels. For instance, regional nations in Europe are required by the recently passed Renewable Energy Directive to guarantee that, by 2030, at least 14% of the energy used for transportation will come from renewable sources. Additionally, advanced biofuels must account for at least 3.5% of the total.
  • The pharmaceutical industry is using iso butanol as a solvent for coating tablets and capsules. Because it guarantees the even dispersion of active substances, it is also utilized in the production of liquid medications. The pharmaceutical industry is expanding at an incredible rate as a result of rising healthcare costs, better infrastructure, and greater public knowledge. For example, the pharmaceutical sector in the United Kingdom generates 40.8 billion pounds in revenue annually. Furthermore, the Indian pharmaceutical industry is expected to reach a valuation of $130 billion by 2030. Furthermore, India exports a large quantity of pharmaceuticals to over 200 countries.

Under this MoU, these companies will produce ethanol and isobutanol, which then be converted into SAFs using Gevo’s processing technology and capabilities.
  • In March 2024, OQ Chemicals announced its decision to increase the price of n-butanol, isobutanol, and n-butyraldehyde by $0.05/lb in North America.

Product Description

Iso butanol (C4H10O) is a clear, colorless 4-carbon branched-chain alcohol with a sweet, musty odor. Its physical properties include molecular weight (74.12 g/mol), flash point (82 °F), boiling point (225 °F at 760 mmHg), density (0.802 at 68 °F), and melting point (-162 °F). Iso butanol is poorly soluble in water and miscible with various organic solvents like ethanol and acetone.

It is naturally found in tuber melanosporum, Angelica gigas, and other organisms. Industrially, iso butanol is produced by the hydrogenation of isobutyraldehyde, which is obtained from the hydroformylation of propylene. It can also be obtained as a coproduct in the Fischer Tropsch synthesis of methanol.

Iso butanol is used as a food additive, fragrance ingredient, and solvent in surface coatings, adhesives, lacquers, cleaners, paint strippers, liquid chromatography, and hydraulic fluids. Beyond this, it is utilized as a conductive agent, fuel, intermediate, sealant, wetting agent, and corrosion inhibitor.
