Propanol is a colorless alcohol typically available in two types of isomers: iso-propanol and n-propanol. Isopropanol was one of the first petrochemicals discovered in the ’1960s. It is used in various applications such as cosmetics, personal care products, deicers, resins, paints, pharmaceuticals, inks, and adhesives, as also as a chemical intermediate to manufacture various chemicals such as methyl isobutyl ketone (MIBK), isopropyl esters, isopropyl amines, acetone, glycerol, and isopropyl acetates. N-propanol is a used in the coatings industry as a medium-volatile alcohol for improving the drying characteristics of alkyd resins, electro deposition paints, and baking finishes. It is majorly used as a solvent in flexographic and other printing ink applications. Propanol is one of the key raw materials used in cosmetics industry. It has an ability to decrease the thickness of liquids and reduce the tendency of finished products to generate foam when shaken.

Rising cosmetics industry is therefore expected to propel the propanol market during the forecast period, owing to its use in various cosmetics and personal care applications. Propanol are also primarily used to manufacture chemicals such as propyl halide, propyl amines, propyl acetate, and glycol ethers. Demand for propanol is projected to increase significantly in the next few years considering the extensive growth of the pharmaceutical industry in various regions. Asia Pacific dominates the propanol market in terms of production and demand. Countries such as China, India, Japan, and South Korea are expected to be the key consumers of propanol. Europe is the second largest consuming region. Propanol has also been used as a major raw material to manufacture acetone.

However, rising production of acetone through cumene process is anticipated to remarkably affected the propanol market. This trend is anticipated to continue during the forecast period, and is therefore expected to unfavorably affect the market growth.
