Dublin, June 10, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The report “Isopropyl Alcohol Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunities and Forecast 2022-2027” has been added to from offer.

The global isopropyl alcohol market reached a value of US$4.3 billion in 2021. Going forward, the market is expected to reach US$5.4 billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 4. 1% in 2022-2027. Keeping in mind the uncertainties of COVID-19, the analyst continuously monitors and assesses the direct and indirect influence of the pandemic on the various end-use industries. This information is included in the report as a major market contributor.

Isopropyl alcohol is an organic chemical compound with the chemical formula C3H7OH. It is a colorless, volatile, flammable liquid compound that has a bitter taste and strong odor. Although miscible with water, some alcohols, ether and chloroform, isopropyl alcohol is insoluble in saline solutions. It mainly finds application as a solvent in essential oils, resins, alkaloids, gums, cellulose and coatings; de-icing agent in lacquers, liquid fuels and extraction processes; and an antiseptic in antifreeze compositions. Isopropyl alcohol is also used in the production of glycerol, shellacs, quick-drying inks, isopropyl acetate, and creosote.

Global Isopropyl Alcohol Industry Drivers:

Isopropyl alcohol finds various applications in several downstream industries such as paint and coating, automotive, cosmetics, printing, pharmaceutical, etc. Economic reforms have led to increased disposable incomes and lifestyle changes for consumers around the world, catalyzing growth. of these industries.

Isopropyl alcohol has been used to remove flux residue after soldering and as a general cleaner to remove oil, grease, and other dirt from handling. Apart from this, it is also used to purify and extract natural products such as animal and vegetable oils, waxes, resins, flavors, fats, vitamins, etc., which positively influences the growth of the market .

Asia-Pacific, where China is the number one region, is one of the fastest growing markets for isopropyl alcohol. Since isopropyl alcohol is readily available in the region, it can be purchased in large quantities at fairly low prices. Additionally, the booming cosmetics and personal care industry, rapid economic growth, and rising income levels have led to an increased demand for isopropyl alcohol products.

Isopropyl alcohol is stable if properly handled and stored under proper conditions. In addition, it has a shelf life of two years from the date of manufacture. The chemical composition and potency of isopropyl alcohol is stable for two years in its original closed container.

The most popular technique for producing isopropyl alcohol at a commercial level is the indirect hydration of propylene. The disadvantages of this method such as high energy cost, corrosive conditions and pollution problems had led to the development of a more efficient technique, called catalytic hydrogenation of acetone. These technological advances in production have enabled the industry to achieve higher yield rates and produce high purity grades, thereby generating opportunities for new applications of isopropyl alcohol.
