The European Butyl Acetate Market Projected to Reach 315 Thousand Tons by 2023
The analytical research projects that the European production of butyl acetate is likely to grow to around 230 thousand tons in the medium term. Upward dynamics of the overall installed production capacities in the region are also expected. Their annual average utilization rates are expected to remain similar. In addition, the market is forecast to remain relatively unbalanced in terms of supply and demand, also showing moderately upwards dynamics in the medium term.
Consumption of butyl acetate in surface coatings depends heavily on construction activity, automotive production, as well as on refinish activity. The chemical is predominantly used as a lacquer solvent in automotive paint and surface coatings for wood furniture, as well as for film-formers such as epoxies, urethanes, cellulose acetate butyrate, nitrocellulose, polyesters, vinyl copolymers and acrylic resins. In addition, there has been interest in corporate restructurings. In 2016, the European Commission approved the acquisition of certain chemical assets belonging to Celanese Corporation by INEOS Europe AG.
