Demand for n Butanol in
India stood at more than 60 KTPA in 2018 and is projected to
grow at a healthy CAGR during 2019-2030. n Butanol is used to manufacture
plasticizers especially Dibutyl phthalate (DBP) which is used to produce PVC. However,
the demand for PVC products is expected to slow down in future. Use of n
butanol for the manufacturing of ethers is expected to rise in the coming
years, thereby resulting in its increased demand. Additionally, n Butanol is
used in few emerging applications like printing inks, rubber chemicals,
pharmaceutical industry, adhesives, dyes and varnishes. Furthermore, increasing
use of n Butanol in cosmetic industry as a solvent, along with increasing
production of API/Alkyl amine from n-butanol would propel demand for n Butanol
of now, The Andhra Petrochemical Limited is the only company manufacturing oxo
alcohols products in India, the company has an annual capacity of 26 KTPA of n
Butanol. However, the inhouse production of company is not enough to meet the
domestic demand of country, thus a large portion of product is being imported.
Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited is also entering the business vertical of
oxo alcohols by expanding its Kochi refinery to produce oxo alcohols. BPCL’s n
Butanol unit with an annual capacity of 150 KTPA is expected to be completed by
the end of 2022. After this plant, the dependency of n Butanol on imports is
anticipated to reduce. Domestic production of The Andhra Petrochemical Limited
and Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited together will be able to meet the country’s
demand in the coming years and can export the product to overseas market as
