Global oxo alcohol market size is projected to grow at a steady CAGR during the forecast period. Growing demand for oxo alcohol to manufacture plasticizers, paints, additives, among others is one of the key factors for the growth of global oxo alcohol market during the forecast period. Additionally, rapid expansion of polymer & plastic manufacturing and chemical industries is positively influencing the market growth across the globe. However, presence of stringent environmental laws and regulations and negative trends of Dioctyl Phthalate (DOP) in regions such as North America and Europe might hamper the growth of global oxo alcohol market over the coming years.

The global oxo alcohol market is segmented based on type, application, region and company. Based on type, the market can be segmented into 2-ethyl hexanol, n-butanol and iso-butanol. Out of which, n-butanol type segment represents the most preferred type and is projected to account for the largest market share during the next five years. The growth is attributable to its use as a solvent in varnishes, paints, fats, coatings, oils, plasticizers and waxes. The iso-butanol segment is projected to register significant growth in the years to come as it is used as a feedstock in the manufacturing of plasticizers, amino resin, printing inks and nitro-cellulose lacquers.

Major players operating in the global oxo alcohol market include BASF, Dow Chemicals, Oxea Group, ExxonMobil Chemical Company, Mitsubishi Chemicals, Arkema, Evonik Industries, LG Chem, Ineos Oxide, Formosa Plastics Corporation, Eastman Chemical Company, Luxi Chemicals Company, Petrochina Sichuan Petrochemic, Wanhua Chemicals, Qilu Petrochemicals and others.
