Butyraldehyde Market Segment Analysis - By Product Type
N-Butanol held the largest share in the Butyraldehyde Market in 2020. N-Butanol is utilized as a component in the production of acrylates which are widely used in the production of paints and coatings, textiles, and others. N-Butanol has huge demand as bio-fuel and bio-based n-Butanol would most likely be the desired fuel owing to its properties such as less hydrophilic nature, high energy content, more energy per volume, higher compatibility, and low volatility with the existing base of oil infrastructure, low corrosive nature, and environmentally friendly products. The next largest product application for butyraldehyde is 2-ethylhexanol, which is used in di (2- ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP), a plastic softener phthalate. Escalating demand for the n-butanol products from various end-use industries is expected to drive the growth of butyraldehyde Market.
Butyraldehyde Market Segment Analysis - By Application
Rubber accelerators segment dominates the Butyraldehyde Market in 2020 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.2% during 2021-2026. Butyraldehyde provides fast acceleration and high network density of vulcanizates in rubber compound. Rubber accelerators is widely used across various industries including automotive, pharmaceutical, textile and others. Increasing rubber production across the globe, for instance, according to the Thai Rubber Association, Thailand is the largest producer of natural rubber and have produced 4.24 million tons of rubber in 2020 and have witnessed a 11% increase in the annual growth rate in 2019. Butyraldehyde is majorly used as an accelerator material in the rubber industry. Elevation in global demand for rubber products is likely to drive the butyraldehyde market during the forecast period.
Butyraldehyde Market Segment Analysis - By End-Use Industry
Chemical segment held the largest share in the Butyraldehyde Market in 2020 up to 6.3%. The chemical segment is significantly growing in terms of revenue, owing to the high demand for butyraldehyde in various specialty chemicals. It is an organic compound which is the aldehyde derivative of butane and chiefly use as a synthetic flavoring agent in foodstuffs like alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, baked goods and candies. The demand for n-butanol is rising as it is used as a chemical intermediate and as a solvent for ambient dry and baking coatings. Besides it is used as an intermediate in pesticides and fertilizers in the agriculture field. The large production of cereal crops, like rice and wheat in key countries like China, and India, is the major factor supporting chemicals growth which indirectly influences the growth of butyraldehyde market.
