The global butyl glycol market is anticipated to reach a valuation of US$ 4.14 Billion by 2029, with sales growing at a stagnant CAGR of 3.6% from 2022 to 2029. By the end of 2022, the target market is set to reach an estimated US$ 3.23 Billion. The increasing application of butyl glycol as a coupling agent and solvent in household cleaning and industrial sectors will fuel the growth of the butyl glycol market during the forecast period.

A colorless liquid organic compound, butyl glycol has properties like lower volatility, sweet-ether odor, and high acidity. These aspects are gaining tremendous popularity as solvents in multiple industry verticals including chemical processing, industrial cleaner, and printing inks sectors among others.

With escalating demand for water and solvent-based paints, the demand for butyl glycol is also increasing. Thus, butyl glycol is experiencing demand from an assortment of end-use industries such as the construction, chemical, and industrial sectors. Again, the expansion of industries like metal working industry, paints & coatings industries, and printing sectors also benefit from the use of butyl glycol. This is expected to have a positive impact on the target market.

Moreover, butyl glycol is observing extensive usage in the paint & coatings industry as a coalescing agent, coupling agent, and solvent. This is because of its favorable characteristics like low volatility, high miscibility, and others. It also finds application in manufacturing paints for improving the brushablity of alkyd resin paints and extending drying time. Similarly, growing demand for architectural paint from residential housing and commercial projects as well as municipal infrastructure such as roads, sewage plants, rails, and others is augmenting the global sales of butyl glycol during the forecast period.
