For a better understanding of the global MEK market, the report comes with an analysis of factors, such as drivers, restraints, trends, production overview, Porter’s analysis, pricing analysis, key regulations and application-wise analysis. This MEK market report offers a broad analysis of the global MEK market, in terms of volume (Kilo Tons) & value (US$ Mn) and year wise growth (Y-O-Y).

Report Description
The report on the global MEK market starts with the executive summary and market introduction, taxonomy of MEK, which provide a broad view of the global MEK market. The next section of the report includes the market viewpoint, macroeconomic factors, parent market outlook and value chain analysis, forecast factors and impact analysis.

After this, the drivers, restrains, trends and opportunities in the MEK market impacting manufacturers have been assessed.The MEK market has been witnessing a steady increase in demand.

The paints and coatings market is estimated to expand at a strong growth rate during the forecast period owing to the growth of construction activities across the globe. This, in turn, is projected to drive the demand for MEK during the forecast period.

The demand for agricultural products is on the rise owing to the continuous growth in population.However, the cultivable land across regions is reducing.

Amidst the current scenario of the widening demand-supply gap, the demand for agro-chemicals is gaining momentum.Agro-chemicals comprise fertilizers, pesticides, biocides and insecticides.

MEK is used as a solvent in the formulation of agrochemicals, such as pesticides and others.Hence, the growing demand for agrochemicals is expected to augment the growth of the MEK market in the coming years.

Although MEK (MEK) offers several advantages, it requires expert handling at every level and a tremendous amount of effort is expended in its safe production and handling. MEK is a highly flammable liquid with low flash point of 30 °C. Attributing to its high flammability, MEK is classified as hazardous for transport under transport regulations. Further, during transportation or storage, MEK must be kept away from sources of ignition and substances with oxidizing properties and contact should be avoided with copper and copper alloys, aluminum and aluminum alloys, butylene, Buna N and neoprene. The transportation of large quantities of MEK requires extreme precautions, to protect both the chemical and the personnel in contact with these chemical during transportation. Hence, flammability and acute hazards pertaining to MEK are expected to slightly hamper the market growth in the near future. Amidst the ongoing competition in the global MEK market, particularly in the European region, several manufacturers are strongly focusing on the enhancement of their production capacities. Surging demand for MEK, particularly from the growing electronics industry and solvent applications, is expected to drive the demand in the MEK market.
