Summary

Table of Contents

The global methyl ethyl ketone market is currently witnessing a healthy growth.

Methyl ethyl ketone (MEK), or 2-butanone, refers to a highly volatile organic liquid that is used as a commercial cleaner and solvent for glues, paints, coatings, synthetic rubber, paraffin wax and printing inks. It is produced by the dehydrogenation of secondary butyl alcohol and can also be manufactured as a by-product of butane oxidation. MEK is primarily utilized for the extraction of fats, oils, waxes and resins and acts as a low-boiling solvent for nitrocellulose, acrylic and vinyl surface coatings. It also aids in removing oil paint finish and contact cement from surfaces and manufacturing solvent-based inks for high-resolution commercial printing in newspapers, books and labels.

Rapid industrialization across the globe is one of the key factors driving the growth of the market. In line with this, widespread adoption of MEK as an industrial solvent for the production of quick-drying, water- and powder-based paints and printing inks that are used with substrates such as metals, glass and plastics, is significantly contributing to the market growth. Furthermore, the increasing product utilization in the pharmaceutical industry is also providing a boost to the market growth. MEK enhances the penetration rate of medicinal drugs and breaks down the structure of quaternary proteins in the body. As a result, there has been a rise in its utilization in the production of antiseptics, aesthetics, lotions and other personal care products. Other factors, including the extensive usage of MEK-based inks in the construction and automotive industry, along with the increasing government investments for infrastructural developments, are projected to drive the market further. Looking forward, the analyst expects the market to grow at a CAGR of around 4% during 2020-2025.
