Oxo Alcohol Market by Type (N-butanol, 2-ethylhexanol, Isononyl alcohol, Isobutanol, 2-propylheptanol), by Application (Plasticizers, Coatings & adhesives, Lubricant adhesives, Chemical intermediates), by End User - Global Trends & Forecasts to 2020

Oxo Alcohol Market by Type (N-butanol, 2-ethylhexanol, Isononyl alcohol, Isobutanol, 2-propylheptanol), by Application (Plasticizers, Coatings & adhesives, Lubricant adhesives, Chemical intermediates), by End User - Global Trends & Forecasts to 2020

Oxo alcohols are prepared from a two-step process. First step is to convert olefins to alcohols by reaction with syn gas (carbon monoxide & hydrogen) followed by hydrogenation of the resultant aldehyde. In the first step, hydroformylation reaction is carried out under low pressure in the presence of rhodium catalyst (LP Oxo process). For example, ethylene may be hydro formulated to produce normal-butyraldehyde and iso-butyraldehyde which are hydrogenated to produce n-butanol and isobutanol. The major applications of Oxo alcohols are plasticizers, paints, coatings & adhesives, lubricant additives, and chemical intermediates.

Asia-Pacific is the global leader in the consumption of Oxo alcohols and this dominance is expected to continue till 2020. China is the key market in the region, consuming more than half of the demand for Oxo alcohols, followed by Japan, South Korea, and India, where consumption is growing steadily. Increase in the consumption of Oxo alcohol for air conditioning & refrigeration, chemical processing, transportation, and consumer goods industry has been observed in Asia-Pacific due to continued industrialization and rise in the manufacturing sector of the region. Growing innovation and developments in the Oxo alcohol consumer industries are directly affecting the rise in the use of Oxo alcohols.

The Oxo alcohols market is very competitive due to the presence of big players in the business, which inhibits the new entrants and local manufacturers to capture a good share at global level. Various market players have started focusing on innovations and product developments to meet the environmental constraints and to lower the production cost of Oxo alcohols in order to have an edge in the market.
