The Global Acetone Market was valued at XX.XX million tonnes in 2015 and is projected to reach XX.XX million tonnes by 2020, at a CAGR of 3.19% during the forecast period from 2015 to 2020. Acetone, also known as dimethyl ketone, is a co-product of phenol and is prepared as a derivative in the cumene peroxidation process. It is a colorless liquid, miscible in ether alcohol or water. Additionally, it is flammable and volatile in nature and possesses a fragrant mint-like smell.

Acetione, owing to its solvent and volatile nature (i.e. it evaporates quickly), is becoming an integral part of numerous industrial/commercial and medical applications. Additionally, it is also used as thinning polyester resin, dissolving two-part epoxies and superglue before they harden, degreasing, preparation of metal prior to painting, and transportation and storage of acetylene. In the Global Acetone Market, we have taken following major applications into consideration: Methyl Methacrylate (MMA), Bisphenol - A (BPA), and Solvents.

This market is driven by a number of factors, such as dynamic economic development in Asia-Pacific region and a positive demand for MMA from the electronics industry. However, the growth of the global acetone market is impeded because of slow demand growth in Europe, strict checks and regulations imposed by the governments worldwide, and declining propylene prices.

The Global Acetone Market is broadly classified on the basis of application into MMA, BPA, and Solvents. In addition, the market has also been segmented on the basis of end-use industries into: Cosmetics, Electronics, Construction, Automotive, Pharmaceutical, Agricultural Chemicals, and Paints, Coatings and Adhesives industry. Additionally, the market has been geographically segmented into Asia-Pacific, North America, Europe, South America, and Middle-East and Africa. Asia-Pacific leads the global production of acetone followed by North America and Europe. The reason behind dominance of Asia is the rising number of end-use industries in the region. Asia-Pacific is expected to maintain its dominance in the coming years, growing at a CAGR of XX.XX% during the forecast period 2015 to 2020.

Furthermore, the growing demand and usage of bio-based acetone will offer numerous opportunities in the growth of the Global Acetone Market. Some of the major companies dominating this market for its products, services, and continuous product developments are INEOS Phenol, Shell Chemical, BASF, Cepsa Quimica, Sinopec and The Dow Chemical Co.
